VW Summer Maintenance

VW Summer Maintenance

Volkswagen vehicles, although great, need to be maintained properly in order to continue being great. Les us delve into the summer maintenance services needed for your Volkswagen.

For the hot months of the year, it is best to have a properly working air conditioning system in your car, so inspect the one in your VW - especially if you notice that fresh air isn’t entering the cabin, or the one that does enter is somewhat unpleasant. This is usually a sign that something is wrong and the A/C needs service or even repair.

Clean any and all rust that may have gathered between the connections of the car battery. Check on the battery’s fluid as well because due to the hot temperatures and heat it may have evaporated - so do check it more often than not during the summer!

Always keep an eye on the levels of the coolant. After all, it has the tough task to keep the Volkswagen from overheating. Also, if you want to be completely on the safe side, have a mechanic inspect the condition of the coolant due to the fact that it becomes erosive with time; it may need to be flushed and replaced entirely.

And, of course, needless to say, keep track of the oil change schedule. Consult your owner’s manual, or a professional if you must.

The last thing I would like to draw your attention to is the auto repair shop you choose - make sure it is one that can service and repair your German Volkswagen impeccably.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Child safety in the vehicle

We all know that child car safety is quite simple, provided that you follow a couple of simple steps. The first thing you need to do is to fit child restraints correctly and make sure you always buckle your kids into them correctly. In addition, it's equally important to seat your kids appropriately so that you can avoid any fighting between them and keep them happy while on the road.

Child Restraint Basics
