- Summer Vehicle Preparation Tips | Car Accident | Suppoprt Pages
During the summer months in Arizona, our weather gets extremely hot and extremely dry which can cause numerous automotive problems. Thus, it is important to make sure we have performed the proper summer vehicle preparations and gathered everything needed in the case that something went wrong and the automobile will not run.
Additionally, summertime is a huge time for Americans to travel. In fact, 45 percent of Americans went on a summer vacation in 2012, which was an increase of 33 percent from 2011. So, no matter if you are staying in Phoenix for the summer or traveling, it is still advised to prepare your vehicle for the summer months.
Throughout these months the United States Department of Transportation has found that auto accidents are higher than any other time of the year. At Phillips Law Group, we are here to protect innocent victims against negligent individuals who have caused injury due to their negligent actions.

Common Summer Vehicle Preparation Tips
As the summer months are brutal throughout Arizona, we must make sure our automobiles are tuned and ready to handle the heat. We must also perform simple routine maintenance to assure we continue traveling happily down our roadways rather than becoming stranded on the side of it.
Some common vehicle preparation tips for the summer include:
Regularly Check Tires
Maintaining the proper tire pressure not only aids in fuel economy, but it also assures you will be able to maneuver properly in emergency situations. It is recommended to check your tire pressure once or twice a month, while also inspecting for any wear and tear on the tires.
Regularly Check Cooling and Air Conditioning Systems
Statistics show that the top cause for automotive breakdowns is related to problems with the coolant and the overheating of the engine. It is recommended to routinely clean out any leaves and debris that could be caught in the fins of the radiator and air conditioner, which would hinder the engines ability to cool properly.
Keep Oil Changes on Schedule
Oil levels should be checked on a monthly basis, while fresh oil should be added whenever necessary to keep the engine running smoothly. It is recommended to have your oil changed when your mileage reaches the point at which your oil change has been scheduled.
Double Check Gas Cap
Although it may seem minor, the gas cap is actually a critical part of your emission control system. Thus, it is recommended to check and see if your gas cap is properly sealed after every time you visit the gas station.
Checking all light bulbs on your vehicle can help you avoid being involved in an accident and also assist your visibility during adverse weather conditions. It is recommended to regularly check for corrosion on the battery terminals to assure your vehicle is receiving the necessary electricity it requires.
A few additional supplies that should be kept in your car include:
- Charged mobile phone
- First aid kit
- Reflective warning triangles
- Tire pressure gauge
- Foam tire sealant
- Jumper cables
- Work gloves
- Extra rags
- Duct tape
- Tow rope
- Multipurpose tool
- Drinking water
- Granola bar
- Fire extinguisher
- Spare tire
- Car jack
By maintaining your vehicle and having these items in your car, you will be able to avoid being stranded on the side of the road, while also being prepared if you do. Of course, it is always advised to move your vehicle as far over on the side of the road as possible and apply your yield lights as a safety precaution.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
