Porsche Summer Car Maintenance Checklist

When it comes to vehicle maintenance tips for summer, Porsche of Milwaukee North is ready to help. There are lots of ways in which your car, truck, or SUV can suffer some potentially damaging wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That damage can be prevented, however, by observing a few steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car, truck, or SUV.

What Are The Benefits To Summer-Proofing Your Vehicle

You’ve made your plans and charted your course for an incredible summer vacation with your family and friends. But nothing can spoil your holiday plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to disregard the benefits of summer-proofing your car.

Vehicle Maintenance Will Save You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance is a mistake all of us have made. In our excitement to get on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?

Extend the Life of Your Car

Keeping your vehicle maintained isn’t just to make sure you get a less costly, problem-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained keeps it healthy for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one intends to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can make certain you and your friends and family get to ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you start your trip, take a few minutes to look at this short vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you run your A/C, check for weird odors, odd noises, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these problems appear, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system looked at.


  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being appropriately cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is good.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, oil, and brake fluid to make sure your vehicle’s vital mechanical systems are effectively lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and check your brake pads and/or shoes for any observable signs of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to make sure your vehicle starts each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
