As a car owner, you understand the importance of keeping your vehicle in pristine condition all year long. Every season brings unique challenges that can impact your car’s performance and longevity, which is why seasonal car care is so important. 

Drawing on our decades of expertise at Boggs Automotive, our goal is to help you keep your vehicle reliable and efficient, just as we do at our service centers.

Battling the Summer Heat

The intense summer sun can take a toll on your car. Here’s how we help you protect it:

  • Apply regular waxing to defend against UV rays.
  • Utilize sunshades to minimize interior heat buildup.
  • Monitor and replenish coolant levels to prevent engine overheating.
  • Conduct brake inspections and replace worn pads and rotors as needed.
  • Perform HVAC system maintenance, including cabin air filter replacement.

Winter’s Cold Embrace

The freezing temperatures and icy conditions of winter call for special care:

  • Check your tires’ tread depth for improved traction on slippery roads.
  • Keep your battery in peak condition, being sure to replace it if your car won’t start in cold weather.
  • Ensure antifreeze levels are adequate for engine protection.
  • Check and replace brake fluid to maintain braking efficiency.
  • Maintain a functional heating system, including a fresh cabin air filter.
  • Use washer fluid designed to withstand freezing temperatures.

Navigating Rainy Seasons

Prepare for heavy rainfall and storms with these measures:

  • Install high-quality wiper blades for optimal visibility.
  • Regularly check tire tread depth for safe driving in wet conditions.
  • Maintain brake fluid levels and replace brake pads if they show wear.
  • Clear HVAC system vents of debris to ensure effective operation.

Autumn’s Falling Leaves

The beauty of fall can bring hidden hazards for your vehicle:

  • Keep your car free from leaves and debris accumulation.
  • Regularly replace air filters to prevent clogging.
  • Top up windshield washer fluid and check for debris in brake components.
  • Maintain the HVAC system, ensuring no leaves obstruct external vents.

Spring’s Allergy Season

With the arrival of spring and increased pollen, focus on:

  • Changing the cabin air filter to ensure clean air circulation.
  • Frequently washing your car to remove pollen.
  • Checking and replacing engine oil for optimal performance.
  • Inspecting the brake system and maintaining the HVAC system, including the cabin air filter.

  • Checking transmission and power steering fluids.
  • Aligning wheels and rotating tires periodically.
  • Inspecting the exhaust system and replacing spark plugs as needed.
