Sierra Toyota’s 5 Summer Tips for driving in Arizona


Air Conditioning

Get your air conditioning serviced.

Arizona summers are some of the hottest driving conditions in the country, with temperatures routinely skyrocketing above 100 degrees. Having a non-operational, or restricted air conditioning system can be downright dangerous. People in poor health and those sensitive to heat such as children, pregnant women, and the elderly can experience health effects from intense weather. Extreme heat can contribute to physical fatigue, and could increase the risk of a car accident. Have your air conditioning inspected for leaks, system operation to include temperature and cabin air filter quality.


Battery

Check your battery.

Living in Arizona has a BIG impact on your vehicle’s battery. The hot climate evaporates a battery’s water and accelerates corrosion, reducing its life. When it’s cold, batteries get weaker, taking more power to start. This 1-2 punch exposes weak batteries. Most vehicle batteries won’t last more than three Arizona summers. You can’t turn off the Arizona heat, but you can be sure to have your battery checked to ensure it is attached properly, free of corrosion on the terminals, and tested to avoid the surprise of a dead battery.


Vehicle Windshield Wiper Blades

Replace your windshield wipers.

Arizona’s monsoon season can see the weather change in a matter of moments, and you don’t want to be stuck in a dangerous rainfall with low visibility. Inspect your current wiper blades and replace them if you notice the rubber blade is worn, tearing, or if the blade assembly is warped.


Tires

Have your tires inspected.

Have your tires inspected for quality and condition. Tires with low tread, extreme cracking, or older than 6 years old should be replaced. Be sure your tires are properly inflated. The correct PSI (found in owner’s manual or driver’s side door sticker) not only improves tire safety but can also improve gas mileage up to 3 percent saving you a few bucks.


Emergency Kit

Carry an emergency kit inside your vehicle.

An emergency kit is something you should keep in your vehicle year-round, but it’s especially important in the summer. Your kit should be stored somewhere safe, yet accessible and include items such as:
 
A first aid kit, Roadside flares, Jumper cables, A flashlight, A phone charger, Gloves, blankets and towels, Water, Non-perishable food items such as granola bars, A basic tool kit
