Car Maintenance for Driving in Hot Weather Roswell, GA
Front End Minor Car Accident

The hot weather in Georgia can do a number on your vehicle. Proactive car maintenance is one of the best ways to beat the heat. There are a number of steps you can take to protect yourself, your passengers and your vehicle in extreme summer weather.

Checking Fluids

You likely ensure that your family is sufficiently hydrated during the summer. Car maintenance should involve the same approach. Checking the fluids in your vehicle regularly will help ensure that you never get caught out on the side of the road in the scorching heat.

Regular car maintenance should include checking:

  • Coolant, which helps to prevent a vehicle from overheating
  • Transmission fluid
  • Motor oil
  • Power-steering fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Windshield wiper fluid

If you know your way around a car, checking belts and hoses is also a part of proactive car maintenance. If not, make sure to have your car regularly serviced by a professional mechanic. Hoses and belts are particularly susceptible to damage caused by extreme heat.

Switch Out Your Battery

A depleted and overused battery can suffer problems in hot conditions. You can have your battery tested to determine condition and lifespan. If the battery needs replaced, don’t pass up on the opportunity. The cost of replacement is much less than that of repairs for a breakdown at the side of the road.

Tire Pressure

When you visit the gas station, take the time to check your tire pressure. A blowout can occur due to tires expanding in the heat. If your tires are at the right pressure, this risk is greatly reduced. Simple car maintenance checks such as monitoring tire pressure can also save lives.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
