Luxury Car Repair Tips for Summer
The warmer summer temperatures can cause additional wear and tear on luxury cars. Small problems can quickly become more serious if they aren’t addressed.
The most common issues during the summer involve your car’s hoses and lines that send fluids from one component to another. Rapid heating and expansion in higher temperatures cause them to break down more quickly. Hoses should feel firm—not squishy—when you press down on them. Look for visible cracks, bubbles, or blisters. Worn or damaged hoses can cause fuel line and radiator problems, leading to overheating, stalls, and hard starts. Increased summer temperatures also lead to belt damage. If the belt has a slick appearance or is cracked, frayed, or split, you should replace it. Squealing noises and overheated engines are a sign of worn belts, which can also cause AC compressor damage. Regular oil changes, tire inspections, and air-conditioning system checks are especially important during the summer months.
