Florida summers are infamous for being hot, hot, hot. In order to protect your MINI car from the soaring temperatures, and to get it road trip ready, bring it into the MINI service center for a tune-up here at Orlando MINI.
Change Your Oil
During the summer time, you’ll need oil with a higher weight and viscosity to keep your ride running. Oil helps to lubricate all components of your engine to help it run smoothly, so gunky and grimy oil will do you and your MINI car no good. If you haven’t gotten an oil change in a while, now’s the time to do it.
Check Your Battery
The ghastly Florida summer heat can be worse for your battery than a frosty winter in Chicago. If your battery is more than three years old, consider getting a brand new unit. You don’t want to be stranded on the side of the road without a working vehicle and no AC.
Consider Summer Tires
Summer can be taxing on your tires because sunlight and heat will break the rubber down more quickly. All-season tires are designed to handle many different conditions.
Change Your Air Filters
Driving with dirty air filters can have a negative impact on your fuel economy and your sinuses because it blocks clean air from getting into your MINI car’s engine and compact cabin.
If your MINI vehicle needs a complete tune-up before the summer season hits, stop on over to Orlando MINI’s service and parts center. We’ll get you serviced and back on the road in no time!
