Maintain Your Vehicle for the Heat!


vehicle maintenance

It is starting to warm up for late spring here in Tucson. Maintaining your vehicle in hot weather is crucial to ensure its longevity and performance. High temperatures can strain your car's engine, battery, and tires, making regular check-ups and maintenance essential.


Firstly, it's important to keep your engine fluids topped off, as they play a significant role in cooling down your car's engine. Overheating can cause significant damage, so monitoring coolant levels and ensuring your radiator is functioning properly can prevent costly repairs.

Secondly, your car's battery life can be shortened by extreme heat as it accelerates fluid evaporation, leading to corrosion on terminals and connections. Regularly cleaning these components and ensuring the battery is securely mounted will mitigate these issues.


Here at Stuttgart Autohaus, Not only will we make sure all fluids are topped off, but the correct fluids are being used and the right batteries are being installed and maintained. Some auto shops will use what they have in stock. We will have what your Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, VW (Volkswagen) and Volvo needs to perform at its best and maintain your vehicle for the heat.


Additionally, tire pressure should be checked frequently, as hot weather can cause the air inside tires to expand, leading to over-inflation and increased risk of blowouts.

Lastly, the interior of your car also needs attention during hot weather. Using sunshades can protect your dashboard from sun damage and keep the car's interior cooler when parked. If your vehicle's air conditioning is not functioning at its best, it's advisable to have it serviced to ensure a comfortable and safe driving experience. Remember, taking proactive steps to maintain your vehicle in hot weather not only ensures your safety but also helps maintain your vehicle's value and efficiency.
