4 Tips for Summer Car Care in Chicago

Summer is here!

You know what that means, longer days full of sunshine and warmth. It’s time to enjoy all that Chicago has to offer or hit the road and take a family trip outside of the windy city. However you choose to enjoy the summer, it’s important to take care of your car, truck, or SUV and prep it properly for all the summer fun you have in store. Here are a few car care tips to keep in mind, especially over the hot summer months.

Get Your Car Inspected at Milito’s Before the Big Road Trip

Chicago winters can be long and brutal on cars. Before you crank up the summer tunes, be sure to stop into Milito’s Auto Repair and get your vehicle inspected for signs of damage or corrosion following the winter months. Extended periods of cold weather can affect a car’s battery, and the road salt can accelerate decay on the wires, lines, and part of the chassis if they aren’t sealed well.

Get Your Wheel Alignment Checked

Potholes are part of the drill when driving in Chicago, but repeated contact with them over the winter can misalign your wheels. Misalignment can wear out your tires unevenly, reduce their lifespan, and increase fuel expenses.  It forces your car, truck, or SUV to work harder than it normally would because of the uneven pressure between the tires. When your car is working harder than it should, the rest of it the vehicle is in danger of developing issues as well.
