Summer travels ahead? See how you can get your Subaru ready for the warm weather with helpful maintenance tips from Anchor Subaru

Summer is fast approaching and if you're anything like many of drivers here in North Smithfield, RI and nearby Providence, Cranston, Johnston, Cumberland, RI and Attleboro, MA, you're going to be spending a great majority of your warm weather months out on the road. Whether you're towing your camping trailer out to nearby camp grounds like Holiday Acres or Hickory Ridge, or taking a cross country trip to visit family and friends, you'll want to make sure your Subaru is up to the task. Fortunately, as one of the premier Subaru service centers here in North Smithfield, RI, we know exactly what service and maintenance your Subaru needs to be in top shape for summer travel here at Anchor Subaru.

Top 4 summer maintenance tips to have a fun summer with your Subaru vehicle

  • Check your battery: You may not know it, but it's actually excess heat, not cold, that causes car batteries to fail. Summer heat can lead to battery corrosion, which can shorten the overall usable lifespan of your battery. Fortunately, when you bring your Subaru vehicle in for battery service here at Anchor Subaru, we'll gladly test your battery's charge and make sure it's free of any efficiency-sapping corrosion.
  • Have your brakes serviced: It should go without saying, but brakes are perhaps one of the most important items on your pre-road trip checklist. If you value safety and peace of mind, bring your car to Anchor Subaru for brake service before you head out. Our team will make sure you're topped off on brake fluid and ensure that all parts of your braking system are in good order so that you can enjoy your summer trips with full confidence.
  • Rotate your tires: Want to avoid a nasty blowout that puts a halt to your summer plans? If so, you'll want to have your tires checked and rotated here at our North Smithfield, RI Subaru service center. Rotating your tires prevents uneven wear that could lead to a blowout, and we'll even make sure your tires are properly inflated to boot.
  • Get your oil changed: Oil changes are a part of life for any car, but it's especially important to have your oil and filter changed before a long trip. Summer road trips mean excess heat and strain on your engine, so keeping it cool and well-lubricated is a must. With our oil change and fluid service here at Anchor Subaru, we'll make sure your Subaru's oil system is flushed out and topped off with the right synthetic oil to do just that.

We hope you found these tips helpful and see the importance of servicing your Subaru vehicle before heading out on your summer travels.
