Subaru Summer Maintenance Tips & Service in Elgin, IL

Is your Subaru ready for reliable and efficient performance this summer? It served you well throughout the winter, but summer is arriving with a different set of driving conditions and risks. Summer maintenance is needed for optimal performance. We offer local Subaru drivers several summer maintenance tips and provide certified Subaru service to assist with summer readiness. When you schedule summer maintenance at Brilliance Subaru, you can also check our current specials to save on service and parts.

Summer Vehicle Maintenance Explained

Seasonal weather and temperature fluctuation are significant vehicle threats that wreak havoc on vital components with relatively short lives. Summer vehicle readiness is about inspecting and maintaining those components that might show wear and tear with performance risk, likely after a long, cold Illinois winter with snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures.

Multi-Point Inspection

If you could only get one service for summer preparation maintenance, we would recommend a multi-point vehicle inspection by a certified technician following the genuine Subaru inspection form. That's because a multi-point inspection is an all-inclusive assessment of primary systems and components, including the battery, tires, fluids, filters, wiper blades, lights, brakes, and more! A post-winter multi-point inspection is an excellent strategy to ensure your vehicle is at its best for summer.

A/C Service & Repair

You probably haven't turned the air conditioner on for months; is it ready to generate cold air at peak performance for an excellent driving experience when it gets hot outside? If not, it's a good idea to get the A/C inspected and serviced as needed to prevent a sweltering cabin from ruining your day.


Winter can be dirty, and, likely, the remnants of winter are still lingering on your auto body and in the cabin. Professional detailing service removes road salt and other filth from the exterior and cleans the interior to achieve showroom cleanliness. Summer maintenance that includes professional car wash and detailing is an excellent way to promote a pleasant driving experience while preserving the resale value.

Coolant Fluid

Few fluids are as vital in summer as the coolant necessary for the optimal engine temperature. We always recommend getting the coolant fluid inspected and exchanged as needed if it has lost integrity. Coolant fluid exchange is associated with enhanced fuel efficiency and extended engine life.
