According to consumerreports.org , "For years, the RAV4 has consistently been among the top-ranked small SUVs. Freshened for 2016, the cabin is quieter; the ride is smoother; it has a suite of advanced safety features; and offers a frugal hybrid version. The energetic 2.5-liter four-cylinder and smooth six-speed automatic returned 24 mpg overall in our tests of an AWD version. The hybrid version gets a terrific 31 mpg overall. Handling is responsive and very secure. Inside, the controls are clear and intuitive. While the XLE comes with the automatic climate control and sunroof, you must step up to the Limited trim to get adjustable lumbar support and the more-comfortable faux-leather seats. Access is very easy, and the rear seat is roomy. For the 2017 model year, forward-collision warning and emergency auto braking are standard."
Summer is just around the corner ( June 20, 2016 to be exact) and it is important to do a little vehicle maintenance to make sure your car is ready for the hot temps!
Number one tip is to check your fluids. This includes your AC/Coolant fluids to make sure your air conditioner is running at its best to keep you cool! You should also check your transmission, steering wheel, brake fluids and your oil.
Tip number two is to check the air pressure in your tires. The smallest fluctuation in the outside temperature can alter the pressure in your tire. Also, summer tires can improve your gas mileage. The last thing you should check is the wear and tear on the tread of your tires. If you need any help seeing when you should replace your tires due to a worn tread, check out our previous blog post here.
Number three tip is to check your battery. High temperatures can alter the performance of your battery. Also check to make sure the connection on the battery is tight, clean and free of any corrosion.
The last tip is to inspect your belts and hoses on your vehicle. Check for any loose, cracked or brittle hoses. Check to make sure the hoses aren't leaking and are in good condition.
We know that not everyone has the time to do their own vehicle inspections or cares to mess with it. If you would like your award-winning service department make these adjustments and do a summer tune-up for you by booking online here or call 479-274-8684.
