It’s summer here in the Fort Myers and Cape Coral, FL areas, and that means that it’s time for a summer maintenance check up. Even though your 2019 Subaru Outback is built to last, your car is still susceptible to the elements. The heat is no joke when it comes to the health and safety of both you and your vehicle. 

As your local Subaru dealership, we believe in more than selling you a car and sending you on your way. We believe in continuing our relationship, and one of the ways we want to do that is by offering up some summer care tips.

Keep your engine cool. Your coolant system is one of your vehicle’s most essential components during summer. It’s necessary to periodically check your fluid levels and consult your owner’s manual to see how often you should get a fluid flush. You’ll also want to check your hose to ensure it’s intact.

You’ll also want to keep an eye on your other fluid levels down to your washer fluid. A lack of fluid is one of the quickest ways to cause damage. 

When it comes to keeping you cool and alert, there are several things you can do. We recommend parking in the shade as much as possible so that your car isn’t sitting idle in the heat for long periods. When driving, use the air conditioning to keep you alert. If you notice issues with your air conditioning, it could be that your refrigerant level is low. If it’s a more significant issue, our expert technicians can help.

Stop by our Fort Myers Subaru dealership today to get the best Subaru service possible. Our factory trained technicians know the ins and outs of all Subaru models and can quickly identify any issue and get you back on the road and staying cool.
