Seasonal Car Maintenance

Keep Your Car Rolling through the Seasons with the Gilbert Chevrolet Service Team

No vehicle is immune to the changing of the seasons, even in Florida, where it seems like the sun never stops shining. Florida may seem like it's in perpetual summer, but the seasons can still wear down your vehicle and require routine maintenance to keep your vehicle operating at peak performance level.

Our service team is happy to provide you with maintenance tips to keep you rolling along. We specialize in Chevy service needs, but we're always happy to work with any make and model and ensure you're getting the scheduled maintenance you need! Let us prepare you for summer sun and cool winters at Gilbert Chevrolet today!

Almost Summer

Right before we hit the hot summer months, we enter a period we like to call Almost Summer. While the weather hasn't gotten quite as warm as it will be, it's still the perfect time to prepare your vehicle with a few services. These services include:

  • Replace Your Cabin Air Filter
  • Check Your Wiper Blades and Replace Them if Necessary
  • Check Your Engine and Cooling System to Ensure They're Running Properly


As we roll into the summer months, the hot sun and warm temperatures can put plenty of strain on your vehicle. Thankfully, you can avoid significant damage to your vehicle with our following recommendations. We'll ensure that even hot Florida summers won't beat your vehicle down! Services at our dealership can include:

  • Check Tires and Brakes, Replace if Necessary
  • Check Engine Oil and Coolant Levels

Still Summer

Summer months can carry on for a while around Gilbert Chevrolet. While it's a good idea to keep tabs on the services we listed above, you can still stay on top of your vehicle services with maintenance like:

  • Verifying Belts and Hoses Fit Correctly

Winter Months

You won't need to worry about cold temperatures like they deal with in the Northern States, but that doesn't mean you completely avoid chilly mornings. Colder mornings can have an adverse effect on your car, so we recommend services like:

  • Check Battery Charge Level
  • Top Off Antifreeze and Windshield Wiper Fluid Levels

No matter which Florida summer season you're dealing with, we encourage you to pay attention to your vehicle and how it handles. The certified GM service technicians at Gilbert Chevrolet can help! Call us today or stop by and schedule your service appointment! We'll prepare you for any season!
