4 Easy Summer Car Care Tips

Summer car care tips

Summer is in full swing, and if you want to keep your trusty vehicle in tip-top shape to help you take advantage of the fine weather, then you’ll want to follow these quick-and-easy summer car care tips:

  1. Your coolant system is critical. Make sure all your fluid reservoirs are full and fresh. While you’re at it, you may as well get your coolant hoses inspected.
  2. You’ll probably be blasting the AC quite a bit, so make sure it’s up to par! Check for Freon leaks by looking to see how much refrigerant is left in the system; if it seems low, have a qualified technician check it out. If your AC feels a little weaker than you want it, grab a quick AC recharger from an auto parts or big box-store.
  3. As temperatures change, your tire pressure will flux. Now is a good time to check your tire pressure and make sure your tire tread isn’t too worn for your upcoming summer road trips.
  4. Our final summer care tip is one you should adhere to every season: make sure you’re getting your oil changed! Summer heat will get your engine working over-time — don’t leave it out to dry with dirty, cruddy oil.

Nissan Taking Aim at Autonomous Driving Technology

Autonomous Driving Technology

We might just be on the brink of a watershed moment in vehicular history, and it’s all thanks to the incredible strides in autonomous driving technology being made by automakers such as Nissan.

Nissan has often been ahead of the curve thanks to its record-breaking car, the Nissan LEAF, the best-selling all-electric vehicle in the world. Now, Nissan is adding to the impressive feats its flagship electric vehicle is capable of by introducing brand-new autonomous driving technology to the next generation of LEAFs.

Nissan LEAFs will feature the state-of-the-art ProPILOT Assist system. ProPILOT Assist will help a driver stay in their current lane while traveling on the freeway. The system will also aid in controlling acceleration and braking, as well as control steering with its Autosteer and Traffic Aware Cruise Control features.

The 2018 Nissan LEAF is just the beginning. Nissan projects that, by 2020, its enhanced vehicles will be able to navigate intersections and drive through cities with complete autonomy.

ProPILOT Assist is the next level of autonomous driving, and it will be available on one of the most popular cars in the world. Big things are happening, and Nissan of Silsbee is happy to provide our customers with cars at the forefront of it all.
