Summer Vehicle Protection

Forget Chapel Hills winters, summers can bring the heat to Colorado, including Pueblo and surrounding areas. Hot weather means it is time to think about driving in the heat and how that affects your car or truck before you hit the road for all your summer adventures. Phil Long Hyundai Of Chapel Hills recommends having your vehicle inspected by a certified service technician one to two weeks before your trip to so you have a piece of mind and don't get stranded by car issues. Common car issues during the summer can include coolant issues, radiator leakage and the air conditioner dying.

A/C System
Chances are that you weren't cranking the air conditioning during the cold winter months. The system may need new filters, a cleaning, or a re-charging.
If you're not a do-it-your-selfer, the service team at Phil Long Hyundai Of Chapel Hills is available to making sure you remain comfortable on the road with a working A/C system.

Check Your Fluids
You can save yourself a lot of hassle in the hot-weather months by monitoring your car's fluids. Fluids that you should check include:
* Coolant: This is the big one. If your coolant/antifreeze level is too low, it can cause overheating.
* Motor oil
* Transmission fluid
* Brake fluid
* Power-steering fluid
* Windshield wiper fluid

Monitor Tire Pressure 
A freezing winter can take a toll on your tires. If you use one set of tires year-round, now is a good time to bring your car in for a tire rotation, a check on the tread, and to ensure that they're inflated properly. If it turns out that your tires need to be replaced, we can help you choose tires that suit your vehicle and are built to last.

Replace Your Battery 
If your car has an old battery, extreme summer heat can spell trouble. To avoid expensive repairs, it's worth having your car's battery tested, or even replaced. Getting a new battery altogether will cost you less than it would to have a dead battery serviced if your car breaks down.

Tips for Child Car Seats 

The safety of all children is something we should all take very seriously. Here are some tips that could safe the life of one of our kids. Buy a used car seat only if you know its full crash history. That means you must buy it from someone you know, not from a thrift store or over the Internet. Once a car seat has been in a crash or is expired or broken, it needs to be replaced. We know that when adults wear seat belts, kids wear seat belts. So be a good example and buckle up for every ride. Be sure everyone in the vehicle buckles up, too.

Car Seat Installations Tips
The main types of infant car seats include:
* Rear-facing seats, which are required for all children up to 12 months old
* Convertible car seats, which are designed to be modified as your child grows and may include more gadgets and straps that aid with restraint.

When installing a car seat:
* Place it in the back seat.
* Ensure the seatbelt straps/tethers are tight. You should not be able to move any strap, harness, or the entire seat itself more than an inch
  if the car seat is properly locked into place by doing one of the following:
   - Using the latch plate on the seatbelt
   - Enabling the seatbelt retractor
   - Installing a locking or belt-shortening clip
   - If available, using the car seat's built in lock-off device.

Make sure there are no twists in the seat belt straps. Make sure the base of the car seat is at the correct recline angle. Many car seats come with a built-in adjuster or angle indicator. If you have a vehicle manufactured prior to 1997, you may need to use a locking clip, which is used to create a fixed length of webbing on a lap/shoulder belt when there is no other way to lock the belt, and must be positioned within 1 inch from the latch plate.

If your car seat came with a base, the carrier handle should be out of the way when the car seat is attached. Read your car seat's instructions.
