The end of summer is quickly approaching. If you want to make the most of it, here are some things you can do with your car specifically in mind.
Summer is almost entirely behind us, but that doesn’t mean it’s too cold to still enjoy a few car-related activities. There’s no time like the present to make the most of the season, so don’t let the opportunity to enjoy these last warm days slip away! Keep reading to get tips and suggestions for things to do with your car before summer is over.
Hit the Open Road
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of driving down the open road on a warm summer day. Before that time is over, plan a scenic drive or a road trip to a destination you’ve always wanted to explore. Whether driving through a national park, visiting a nearby historic town, or cruising down a famous highway, there’s no shortage of destinations to choose from. Grab your sunglasses, put on your favorite tunes, and hit the open road!
Plan One Last Summer Adventure
Even if you don’t want to spend most of a trip in your car, you can still consider planning an adventure that gets you away from the house. This could be a day trip to the beach, a weekend getaway to the mountains, or driving to a relative’s house. Summer provides the perfect backdrop for creating unforgettable memories, and your car is the best method of transportation for getting you there.
Give Your Car a Thorough Cleaning
A clean car is a happy car, and there’s no better time to give your vehicle a deep clean than at the end of the summer. When washing the exterior, be sure to remove any dirt or debris from the undercarriage. Do so with a soap and sponge, as there are many benefits of handwashing a car over taking it to an automated car wash.
For the interior, vacuum the seats and floor, dust the dashboard, and condition the leather if necessary. Don’t forget to clean the windows, both inside and out, for a crystal-clear view of those beautiful summer sunsets. A clean car looks great and helps with maintenance and resale value down the road.
Perform Routine Maintenance
Speaking of maintenance, now is a good time to take care of that, too. With road conditions often more favorable during the summer months, it’s a fantastic time to catch up on routine car maintenance. Check your tires for wear and ensure they are properly inflated. Inspect fluids—such as coolant, oil, and brake fluid—and top off if necessary. Replace any dirty air filters, and give the battery a once-over. Performing these tasks now will help ensure a smooth and reliable driving experience as the seasons change.
Attend a Car Show or Auction
The final thing you can do with your car before summer ends is go to a car show or auction since this is the prime season for these events. If your car looks good enough after cleaning and maintenance, you could even show off your vehicle while you’re there. Either way, these events are a great way to see some unique and classic vehicles up close, chat with fellow enthusiasts, and maybe even find your next dream car. Keep an eye out for local car clubs or events online, and make a day of it!
