If you live in the West Chester, PA, Concordville, Chadds Ford, Aston, Brandywine, DE areas, we can help you with any parts or services that you need to get your Volkswagen ready for the summer months.

Check Your Vehicle's Air Conditioner

You'll want to make sure that your vehicle provides you with all the cold air that you need during the summer. That's why you should have your A/C system checked. Make sure that there is cold air blowing from each vent. Also, check your cabin filter to ensure that it is still in clean condition.

Keep Your Vehicle from Overheating

An overheated vehicle can be a real problem during the summer. Therefore, you will want to look for some warning signs that your vehicle's cooling system is about to fail. One of the first things that you should do is check under the vehicle for any coolant leaks. A coolant leak will appear as a lime green, pink, or orange puddle under the vehicle. Also check to see if your vehicle has proper coolant levels.

Check All of Your Vehicle's Lights

You will also want to check to see if all of your vehicle's lights are in top condition. This includes all of your vehicle's headlights, tail lights and fog lights. If you need any lights for your Volkswagen, then be sure to visit our parts center. We have a top selection of OEM Volkswagen lights available for all current models.

Perform a Tire Inspection

Be sure to check the tire pressure on all four of your vehicle's tires. You will also want to check to make sure you have enough tread depth on each tire. You can perform a tread inspection by placing a penny, upside down, on the tread. If Lincoln's head can not be seen, then your vehicle has enough tread depth.

Check Your Vehicle's Battery

No summer road trip car prep check is complete without a battery inspection. Also be sure to check the battery connectors for any sign of corrosion.

Inspect Your Vehicle's Engine Filter

You will want to make sure that your engine's air filter is in top condition. That's because your engine air filter is responsible for keeping your vehicle's engine clear of any dirt or debris. If the air filter appears dirty, then have it changed right away.
