As warm weather approaches, it’s time to get your vehicle ready for summer driving. Summers in Alabama can get very hot. At Robinson Insurance Group LLC, we want you to be aware of several items you’ll want to make sure are in order before you take off on a road trip across the country or just across town.
Get Your Car Ready for Summer Driving
Check the Tires
When the roads get warm, this can cause tires to lose rubber on the highway. Making sure there’s enough tread on your tires is important for driving as safely as possible during the summer. It’s also important to make sure your tires have enough air pressure.
Get a Tune-Up
A tune-up would normally include a detailed engine inspection. This should also include changing fuel and air filters, changing damaged or old spark plugs, and adjusting the clutch in vehicles with manual transmission.
Make Sure the AC is Working
Freon can leak out through the winter months. This can be hard on your compressor. Some repair shops may check this out for you at little or no cost when you’re getting a tune-up. The last thing you want is your air conditioner to conk out when those warm days finally arrive!
Update Your Insurance
You’ll want to make sure you have enough auto coverage. In Alabama, there is a minimum amount of liability insurance every driver is required to have. All drivers must also have proof of auto insurance with them at all times when driving and be ready to show the information to law enforcement when it is requested.
