That said, we’re not just a leading exotic car retailer; we’re also a team of knowledgeable car experts who are always willing to share our automotive advice.

Contrary to popular belief, winter isn’t the only season that can put excess wear on your vehicle. Sure, the cold can do its share of damage, but in truth, heat is one of the most limiting factors when it comes to the health of your vehicle. Fortunately, you can combat this heat, through tried-and-true maintenance and a careful eye.

For one, you should ensure your coolant is at an adequate level. With the heat, your cooling system is going to be working double time, and it is good to be prepared. Replacements should be performed every 30,000 or so miles, but we are happy to top it off in the meantime.

You should also be aware of your tires, as high temperatures can cause them to over-inflate. Summer tends to call for road trips, so ensuring your tires are ready for the journey can help you avoid changing a flat out under the scalding sun.

Lastly, we recommend you have your air conditioning inspected. Checking for leaks and refrigerant levels can make the difference between an effective AC and turning your car into a mobile hot box.

At Van Horn Alfa Romeo Davenport, we strive to help you make the most out of your dealership experience. If you’re looking to prepare your car for the summer, our Alfa Romeo service experts are here to help and will go above and beyond to ensure that you beat the heat this summer season.
