As the summer continues here in our nation’s capital, things will start to get a little busier. You’ll most likely be on the move due to the usual work commute or you’re planning a road trip. Either way, your European car might need to undergo the usual maintenance check to see if it’s roadworthy for the rest of the year.

At Excluservice, we are your specialists in European auto repair in Rockville, MD. We also provide auto repair for Bethesda, MD, and Washington, DC residents who drive European made vehicles like Volvo, Audi, BMW, or Mercedes (among others). Whatever European vehicle you drive, our qualified mechanics will perform a maintenance check to prevent any common car issues.

If you’re wondering what mechanics are looking for during your usual maintenance inspection, now is your chance to get a “behind the scenes” look at what our Excluservice mechanics look for. These are some of the following things that they’ll inspect:

Flat Tires 

Obviously, the tires will meet more roadways in the summer than any other time of year. If you know about the weather in Rockville and the DMV area, it can get hot. Your tires may also deal with some over inflation or cracks if it’s been in the heat long enough.

Any damage or over inflation can lead to flat tires. It would not be fun to be on the side of the highway changing a tire and run late for work. Even worse, you could be stuck during rush hour.

Our mechanics can also perform a tire rotation as part of your checkup process. We make sure that your tires remain in good condition and last a long time. If we decide that you need a fresh set, we’ll let you know.

We also have flexible payment plans. Plus, you get our 3 year/36,000 warranty in case things go wrong with your tires. It’s what we do at Excluservice.

Poor Alignment

Let’s stay on the topic of tires for another moment. Poor steering alignment can pose a danger for not just yourself, but also your passengers. It will also cost you money in lower fuel efficiency and worn tires. If something doesn’t seem straight and your car veers to one side more than normal, our kind mechanics can help you get your vehicle ready.

Our qualified mechanics at Excluservice will have your vehicle properly aligned and ready to go quickly. You can have peace of mind because vehicle is safe and economical.

Dirty or Contaminated Oil

Taking care of the oil in your engine is critical to having a properly working vehicle. Choosing not to check it will lead to engine issues further down the road. You can check it yourself or one of our Excluservice mechanics can help you.

One of the main reasons why your oil should be checked on a regular basis is to check to see if it needs a fresh change. Summer is the time of year where your engine will most likely come in contact with dirt and debris—this can cause other issues down the road.

One of the reasons why oil in your vehicle is important is that it has the capability to clean your engine and prevent further clogs from happening.

Faulty AC

During a regular inspection, our Excluservice mechanics will check your AC system for any problems. The summer is the worst possible time for your AC to fail. It can fail due to so many factors.

You could have some engine clogging, worn down parts, or you may be running low on refrigerant. The mechanic will take preventative measures to ensure that your AC will be on full blast every time you’re on the road this summer.

If we make repairs to your vehicle, we will replace them with high-quality parts. If you don’t have much to spend, we have financing options available to you.
