Cooling System Inspection

One of the major causes of car trouble during summer is issues with the cooling system which consists of the radiator, water pump, coolant fluid, thermostat, and other parts. We can check all the vital parts of the cooling system to ensure your vehicle does not get overheated.

Tire Inspection

Tire inspection includes checking the tire tread, sidewall, inflated pressure, and more. We might recommend certain tire services to improve the condition of the tire. If you are using winter tires, you should change to summer or all-weather tires as winter tires can suffer from rapid tread wear if used in hot conditions.

A/C System Inspection

If the car A/C is already having issues or you are looking for a routine A/C inspection, we can take care of your vehicle at Minuteman Volkswagen. Some of the common A/C services include recharging the A/C with fresh refrigerant, replacing the cabin air filter, and cleaning the condenser of any debris.

Battery Inspection & Testing

Higher temperatures during summer can cause excessive stress on the car battery. We can inspect the battery and other parts of the battery system to ensure the battery is not weak. We carry high-quality OEM parts at Minuteman Volkswagen for any battery replacement service required by your vehicle.

Headlights and Tail Light Inspection

The headlights or tail lights of your vehicle need a periodic inspection to ensure it doesn't require bulb replacement or other types of service. The lights play a crucial role in safe driving for you and others on the road.

Engine Inspection

Inspection of the engine includes checking the spark plugs, motor oil, air filter, oil filter, gaskets, and other parts of the engine. The condition of the engine is important for the performance and reliability of your vehicle.
