When school lets out and the temperature starts to climb most families just want to jump in the car and go – anywhere! Summertime is travel time, and it doesn’t matter what gas prices are, sunny skies and the open road are calling and Americans everywhere start to load up their cars to take off for parts near and far. Summer’s great vacation migration starts up every Memorial Day weekend and runs non-stop until Labor Day. But before you pack a picnic basic or a camping tent, know that you need to do some maintenance on your car after the long, cold winter to prepare it for warm road trips. Here at Ken Scales Auto Repair, we’ve got one of the best automotive teams in Southern Oregon and we know how to drive in Oregon weather year round! Just ask our customers!
Our team here at Ken’s has come up with some excellent and easy maintenance routines that you – or we – can do for your car around Memorial day so you can keep your family safe and save some money at the pump as well! Long drives and extreme heat can be tough on your car. You fuel efficiency can be significantly lowered if your hoses are cracked, your radiator’s leaking, your air filters are dirty, or your tires are underinflated. You want to stay safe on the road, not sit on the side of it waiting for a tow truck!
