If you live or work near our Burlington, MA Mercedes-Benz dealership, then you’re probably all too familiar with how important it is to winterize your car near the end of fall. What you may not realize, however, is that it’s equally critical for you to summerize your automobile toward the end of spring.

Summerizing is the equivalent of winterizing as it relates to prepping a vehicle for an upcoming change of season. While you may want to install winter tires at the end of autumn, replacing them with summer or all-season tires is part of the summerizing process. Once you have season-appropriate tires on your vehicle, you need to check your tire pressure. If your tires aren’t inflated properly, it can lead to uneven wear patterns and it may even compromise the integrity of your tires.

In addition to checking your tire pressure, you should also examine your windshield wipers for excessive wear and tear. If your wipers aren’t in good condition, you should pick up new ones in our Mercedes-Benz parts department.

You should test your air conditioning, too. Turn on your A/C and see if cold air is coming out of your vents. If you notice any unusual sounds or smells while your air conditioning is on, you need to bring your car to our Mercedes-Benz service center to determine what’s going on.

While you can check your tire pressure, test your A/C, and change your wipers on your own, there are a number of steps in the summerizing process that are best left in the hands of our factory-trained automotive technicians. Testing your battery, getting you caught up on your car’s routine maintenance, and inspecting your vehicle’s mechanical components are some of the things you should let the experts in our Mercedes-Benz service center near Winchester, MA take care of for you.
