As the days get hotter so does your vehicle. Don’t be that guy holding up traffic, sitting on the side of the freeway because you neglected to take proper care of your vehicle. The last thing you want on your summer bucket list is for you precious Audi to overheat. Be sure to:

Coolant System

Your car’s coolant system is crucial in keeping your car’s engine cool while driving. This can easily be avoided with an antifreeze and coolant flush and fill. Schedule a service visit at Audi of Fremont to have your coolant system inspected.

Battery

Your car battery is highly susceptible to summer heat damage. In fact, hot weather is actually harsher on your battery than cold weather due to the heat causing your battery fluid to evaporate. This leads to damage in the internal structure of the battery. Preventative maintenance can go a long way toward prolonging the life of your battery. 

 

Air-Conditioning Systems

Car Sunshades

Ever sat in a car that’s been sitting in the sun for far too long? It’s definitely not fun. Add hot leather seats and shorts and you just scorched your legs. Parking your Audi in a shaded area such as, a garage or carport will not only save your legs, but it also protects your car from ultraviolet rays damaging your Audi’s beautiful exterior paint and interior. If you don’t have access to shaded parking, invest in sunshades for your dashboard and rear windows to help keep your vehicle cool and interior protected from fading. Visit our parts store at Audi Fremont to pick up a pair.

Air Filter

A high-performance vehicle like your Audi, deserves to run at peak performance always, and your air filter plays a key role in ensuring the quality performance of your luxury car or SUV. When dirt and debris begin to build up, the filter can become clogged and lead to performance issues. Aside from this, air filters also help prevent allergens and other contaminants from entering your vehicle.  You can  find genuine Audi air filters and other OEM parts at Audi Fremont’s parts department.
