Summer Service Tips to Prepare for Your Next Road Trip

Summer is the ideal time to set out on all kinds of adventures around Louisiana and East Texas, but before you hop into your Volvo vehicle and head towards your next destination, it's important to make sure that your vehicle is in good enough condition to make the trip. Fortunately, with a little routine summer maintenance here at our Volvo service center in Shreveport, you can whip your vehicle into shape and keep your car running smoothly during your next trip.

Here are a few summer service tips to help you get your Volvo XC40 or Volvo XC60 into shape for summer:

Oil Change

Oil changes are beneficial at any time of year, but they're especially crucial during hot summer months. Your engine needs a little extra attention to make sure that its various parts stay lubricated and cool. Scheduling an oil change before your next adventure can help to improve engine performance and reduce the risk of overheating.

Battery Check

Extreme temperatures can negatively affect your car battery, so it's important to inspect it before a long trip so that you can get ahead of potential problems that could leave you stuck with a car that won't start. We can inspect your battery and replace it if needed to help ensure a smooth trip.

Tire Rotation

Rotating your Volvo XC90's tires regularly is one of the best ways to get the most out of them. Tire rotations promote even tire wear, which improves the lifespan of your tires and helps them maintain their ability to gain traction.

Wheel Alignment

If your wheel alignment is off, it can cause excessive tire wear. If your wheels are out of alignment for an entire road trip, you might find that your tires paid a heavy price at the end of it. So, it's best to have your wheel alignment inspected and adjusted before taking a summer road trip with your Volvo S60 or Volvo S90.
