Summers in East Central Indiana means people start hitting the golf course. But just like the iced drinks and air conditioners come out during the summer to ensure that you’re feeling better, you also need to make sure that your golf cars are properly maintained and ready to deal with the heat.
Some ways to extend the life span of your golf cars during the summer months include:
• Take care of your tires:
The air pressure in your tires should be at the factory recommended level regardless of the time of year. However, low tire pressure in hot weather can be especially dangerous. The heat increases the likelihood of your tire blowing when it has low pressure, making it hazardous for both you and any bystanders. Ensure that you check your tire pressure at least once a month and replace your tires when needed.
• Take care of your battery:
The batteries in golf cars are among the most essential parts of the car. Regardless of the type of golf car you own, caring for your battery is one of the most important ways of maintaining your golf car’s life span. Summer means that the water in your batteries evaporates quicker as compared to milder months, so make sure to keep an eye on the water level in your golf car batteries.
• Take care of the paint:
Direct sunlight can negatively affect the color on golf cars, and too much sun exposure can cause the paint to shrivel and fade. Make sure to wash and wax your golf car occasionally as a way to protect the paint, and store your golf cars in garages, in the shade, or under a cover when not in use.
