How to Avoid a Summer Roadside Emergency

Will you suffer a roadside breakdown this summer? AAA predicts they will rescue 7 million motorists this season, mainly for three common reasons:

  • Battery failure
  • Flat tires
  • Lock outs

As the weather goes from frigid New England winter to scorching hot summer, a lot of strain is put on our cars—especially the batteries and tires. While many drivers have had the unfortunate experience of a car that just won't start on a cold morning, hot weather is actually even harder on the battery. Tires that may have a slow leak or other problems can also be hit hard as dramatic changes in temperature wreak havoc with air pressure.

What can you do to prevent roadside disaster this summer?

Make an appointment with a Macdonald Motors Auto Group service center. Our technicians are trained to handle all the needs of your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Ford, or Lincoln vehicle. By proactively testing your battery and inspecting your tires, you can make sure that you're prepared for whatever life throws at you, and avoid being one of the 7 million calls AAA receives.
