Summer Maintenance for LexusSummer is here! Now, let us view the situation with your Lexus. In this article, we will discuss how you can keep your vehicle in good working order.
First things first, let us make sure that you will be kept air conditioned in the summer heat. Inspect your Lexus’ cabin air conditioning filters. And if you feel that you want to be completely safe, inspect the entire system in question.
Check the fluids in the vehicle. The bear minimum would be – oil, brake fluid, coolant, windshield wiper fluid, and power-steering fluid. If you want to go the extra mile, feel free to check on all of the car’s fluids (personally, this is what I do). And remember that the coolant is of the highest importance for the summer, unless you want your vehicle to run the risk of overheating.
Make sure that you have some important items in the vehicle – emergency kit, small tool kit, chargers for a phone and/or tablet, water, snacks that don’t go bad, flashlight, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses.
As during the other seasons, pay attention to the tires. Check the wear and tear, and the air pressure as well. I feel obliged to mention that you need to keep the spare tire in good condition, too. You never know when you might need it, and even if you don’t, it’s always a good idea to check on it periodically.
If you want to be a 100% certain that your Lexus is in good condition for the summer months, you can visit an auto repair shop and let a professional mechanic inspect the vehicle for you.
