Summer is Here: We're Sure You're Ready, But is Your BMW?

Edmonton BMW repair
Living in Edmonton, winterizing your car is as natural as breathing, but did you know that you need to summarize it too? Yes, summer is short and snowmaggedon will be upon us all too soon, but here at Sandy Lane Auto, Your Independent BMW Repair Facility in Edmonton South, we're ready to get your ride ready for the sunny season.

What Do You Need to Do?

Chances are, you've already done the obvious like switching out your winter tires for summers, and maybe even switched out your winter oil, but there are several more things to do to make sure your car is ready for the Alberta summer.

  • A thorough check of your BMW's cooling system. That means radiator checks, coolant levels, check hoses for cracks and damage and make sure everything is fitted tightly.
  • A check on the air conditioning system. While overheating inside your car is not necessarily bad for the car, no one wants to be a sweaty mess wherever they go!
  • A brake check. After a long winter of braking hard and hoping for the best, your braking system might not be what it should be.
  • Remember to check your windshield wipers too, and top up your washer reservoir with anti bug washer fluid. Because we all know that when the sun's out in Edmonton, so are the bugs!
  • It's a good idea to have your BMW professionally cleaned too. Road salt buildup is not car friendly!
  • Finally, if you are heading out on a summer road trip, make sure you check your emergency gear, and that you have everything you need on hand.

A good shop that specializes in high end domestic and imported vehicles will have all the parts and consumables you need on hand, and they'll do a general check on your BMW too, just to make sure everything is in tip top shape.
