Winter is gone and spring has arrived in Fair Oaks, which means it’s time to prepare your car for summer. Summer car maintenance can help keep you safe and make your vehicle last longer. Find out what to do here, and then schedule a Premier Express service appointment at Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento.

  1. Check your tires. – Summers in Carmichael can get hot, and the heat of the road against worn out tires can spell disaster. Check to see that there’s still plenty of tread and even wear on your tires.
  2. Make sure your brakes are in good shape. – Winter weather can be tough on your brakes, so have your brake pads checked to avoid expensive rotor repairs and dangerous situations.
  3. Wash off winter. – Your car gets dirtier during the winter, so now that summer’s peaking out, make sure to get your vehicle to the car wash to get off all the grime.
