How to take care of your car in summer?

Handy Guide to Maintain Your Rental Car During Summer

Published: 10/03/2022

The rising temperatures can take a toll on anyone and everything, including your vehicle. The thought of summer evokes emotional responses that run the gamut in the Middle East deserts from ecstasy to sheer fear. If cars could express their feelings, they would shudder at the thought of temperatures hitting close to 50 degrees Celsius. As summer is approaching, it is advisable to get the rental car checked so as to ensure that it remains in top condition. Here are a few tips to follow to take care of your vehicle during the soaring temperatures.

Handy Guide to Maintain Your Rental Car

Maintain the Air Conditioner

Just like humans, cars also need to be kept comfortable. In the hot season, the car's air conditioner tends to get a good workout, which is why it's mandatory to have it continuously checked during its peak condition. From the refrigerant to the compressor, thermostat, and filters, everything needs to be thoroughly inspected.

Check the Tires

Tires are made from rubber, and these are the most susceptible to the rising temperatures. It is also related to vehicle safety, so they should get extra attention during the blazing months. We advise you to not inflate the tires beyond the recommended pressure and only to check tire pressure when they are cold. That's because heat expands the air inside, thus leading to inaccuracy in the tire pressure amount.

Check Your Battery

Handy Tips to Ensure Your Car is in Good Condition During SummerExtreme heat can cause the fluids of the battery to evaporate, further damaging the internal cells, allowing the car to be prone to a breakdown. The soaring temperatures could also cause a malfunction in the battery charging system. It's because of the voltage regulator, which allows a high charging rate, eventually causing the battery to be destroyed.

Keep the Engine Cool

Every vehicle offers optimum performance within a range of temperatures. Extreme cold temperatures are as dangerous as extreme heat. You should be concerned about the latter. Ensure the car engine cooling system operates at its peak efficiency. If you find that the coolant is disappearing at a rapid rate, it may be a sign of leakage and should be checked immediately.

As summer is approaching, we recommend getting your vehicle serviced and checked by your car rental to prevent the car from facing any of the issues mentioned above.
