Do a summer car check with your new teen driver

May is a great time of year to do a check on your car and make sure it’s in good shape for summer. Doing a car review is also a great opportunity to teach your teenager more about the vehicle. If you are in the process of teaching your teen how to drive, it’s important that they also know their car. If they are using it, they also need to be able to take care of it.

Plus, getting your car in shape for summer will help you look forward to fun times ahead!

Here’s what you should do in your Get Ready for Summer Car Review:

  • Check coolant level.

  • Check oil level (Is your oil due to be changed?).

  • Check windshield washer fluid level.

  • Turn on the AC and make sure it’s blowing cold air.

  • Change your wiper blades.

  • Check your battery expiration date.

  • Wash your car.

  • Check tire pressure.

  • Clean out trash (you don’t want leftover holiday chocolate melting into your seats).

  • Check your emergency kit and update anything that needs to be.

Overall, it's important to do a good thorough check on your car at least twice a year. The more you stay on top of maintenance, it's less likely something will go wrong while you're out driving on the road. Remind your new driver about this, as well.
