Many drivers don't realize that summer's heat can be as hard on a car as winter's cold. When temperatures are extreme, parts can become brittle and crack, fluids can quickly break down, and tire pressure can drop. All of these compromise safety and lessen gasoline mileage.
“Seasonal auto maintenance and repairs are generally less expensive and more convenient when they're done as preventive measures, before a system meltdown occurs,” said Tom West, President and CEO of JC Whitney, the nation's oldest and largest auto parts supplier. “Plus, maintained vehicles almost always last longer and command a higher resale price.”
JC Whitney has some suggestions to help motorists enjoy a more reliable and efficient ride this summer, and its website (www.jcwhitney.com) offers over 6 million parts and accessories that car owners need to keep their vehicles running their best — all at the lowest guaranteed prices.
“A qualified technician can check the systems that often suffer from the summer heat,” added West. “Following the diagnosis, car owners can save money by buying the parts they need from JC Whitney and then having their local mechanic install them.”
