Test your Car's Air Conditioning

Our service center will be happy to perform a test on your A/C system to ensure the air from your vents is as cold as possible on a hot day.

Whether it needs a simple recharge or repairs, the technicians here at Circle Buick GMC will help you stay comfortable for the entire Summer!
Get your Oil Changed
Getting your car's oil changed regularly is important no matter the season, but even more so in the summertime. The reason for oil change's importance in the Summer months is because hot temperatures can cause the oil to thicken over time, which leads to sludge buildup. Old oil is more susceptible to sludge and will not give the engine the lubrication it needs to keep the operating temperature in check. Therefore, getting your oil changed regularly will prevent the breakdown of oil to keep your engine running healthy.
Check your Vehicle's Battery
A car battery may seem like a small part, but without it, your car isn't taking you anywhere. Our technicians recommend testing your battery twice a year to make sure it is cranking out the power it needs to start the car every time. You can check your battery yourself by opening your hood and inspecting the terminals to check for corrosion or leaks. The service technicians here at Circle Buick GMC would be happy to test your battery to measure the exact power it's putting out and let you know if it is time for a new one.
Check your Wiper Blades
In addition to heat, Summer can bring heavy rains. The condition of your wiper blades is easy to overlook when it's sunny out. But if your windshield wipers are cracked or torn, it could cause a safety issue. Torn or cracked wipers can stutter, leave streaks, and prevent proper clearing of your windshield. If your wipers aren't clearing your windshield as well as they should, a friendly service technician will help you find wipers that fit your car to keep you safe even in heavy rain.
Summertime can be brutal on a car. That's why the service experts here at Circle Buick GMC are ready to help get your car ready for Summer and keep it running for all the many miles to come.
