If you’re planning an extended vacation or notice a problem with your car, schedule an appointment here at Sunrise VW.
Often, the first sign you have a problem is that your air conditioning isn’t cooling the cabin as well as it once did. Or perhaps you notice a musty smell in the cabin. Possible culprits could be a leak, compressor issue, a clogged filter, or cooling fan problem. The only way to remedy the issue is to bring your vehicle in for a professional inspection.
We often think of winter as being rough on batteries. But it’s actually the summer where batteries suffer the most. The hot temperatures outside increase the heat to critical levels under the hood. This causes your battery to corrode faster. With a battery inspection, our technicians will clean off the connections and ensure they’re free from corrosion. High temperatures can also cause the batter’s fluid to evaporate, which is why we’ll also inspect the levels.
During hot temperatures, your coolant works hard to keep your engine at the recommended temperature level. Coolant prevents your engine from overheating initially, which is why it’s so important to check your fluid levels regularly during hotter-than-normal conditions. We offer both fluid top-offs and coolant flushes at our VW dealership.
Stay cool in your Volkswagen Jetta or VW Tiguan this summer by scheduling a service appointment with Sunrise Volkswagen.
