Get your Subaru ready for summer

Subaru of Niagara summer

Summer is in full swing here in Niagara, so if you haven’t, now is the time to bring your Subaru into Subaru of Niagara and have our service technicians take a look at your car and make sure it’s in safe working order for all the summertime adventures we know you’re going to go on!

It might seem a little unnecessary, but with the heat of summer, vacationing traffic jams, and your own road trip wear and tear, your Subaru needs some TLC to get prepared. Subaru of Niagara will make sure everything is in peak condition before you set out on any road trip adventures. Here are some things we’ll check and ensure are in good working order before you set out.

Air Conditioning Tests

Our qualified service technicians will check your air conditioning systems and ensure they’re in good condition to keep up with the hot weather. The most effective way to test for yourself if your air conditioner isn’t working correctly is if it can’t bring the interior temperature of the car 10 degrees below the air outside and then hold that temperature for a few minutes. If it can’t do that, it’s time to get it serviced. Most commonly the cause is a low level of refrigerant.

Cooling Systems

Summer breakdowns are usually the cause of an engine that overheats. The cooling system in your Subaru should be flushed completely and then refilled every 24 months. As part of your regular car maintenance, the level, condition, and concentration of the coolant will need to be checked periodically. Before you take off for summer fun, our service technicians will check this for you.


Ensuring that your brakes are checked regularly is very important, no matter the season. They should be inspected as per the recommended schedule in your owner’s manual. With dry summer roads, especially if you take your Subaru off the beaten path, dust stirs up and can interfere with your brakes. Taking your car into our service technicians will ensure that your brakes are checked and you are safe.

Book your appointment with our service team today and let us get you in perfect condition for the rest of the summer! Don’t forget – we’re still open during our renovation, with our teams working out of a trailer to best help you. Subaru cares about keeping you safe on the roads!
