7

Whether you are heading to the beach with friends, taking a road trip with your family, or commuting back and forth to work, it is important that your vehicle is ready and properly prepared for the summer months. That is why All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge has compiled a list of vehicle tips to ensure that you will stay safe this summer!

Get your Vehicle Serviced

Before you get on the road, get your vehicle serviced. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery checked and tire rotations will go a long way towards preventing breakdowns. If your vehicle has not been serviced according to Volvo’s recommendations, schedule a maintenance checkup with us right away! You can schedule a service appointment by clicking here!

Check the Weather

The summer months are popular times for severe storms and flooding, so be sure to check the weather before you head out. Driving in the rain can be dangerous, and flooding can quickly turn deadly, especially if you drive into high water. Even short showers can make roads slippery as rain mixes with the dirt and oil on the road.

Double Check those Babies

Keep kids and pets safe in the car at all times. Make sure your children are properly secured in their car seats and booster seats. Also make sure they remain seated and buckled in when the vehicle is in motion. If you are traveling with a pet, make sure the animal is properly secured in a harness or dog seat belt. Here are some different options for a dog seat belt if you are traveling with a larger dog. Pets are part of the family, so make sure they are properly secured also!

Stay Alert

Stay alert and focused! This is especially important if you are taking a road trip and driving early in the morning or late at night. Make sure you take stops along your route to stretch, get something to eat and drink, return calls or text messages and change drivers if you are feeling tired or drowsy. If your trip is more than a 10-12 hour drive, consider staying overnight at a hotel or family resort so you are well rested for the remainder of your drive.

Potholes Ahead!

Look for potholes. Especially after a rainy day, potholes can appear everywhere on the road. Know the roads you’re on and keep an eye out for dangerous potholes that can cause damage to your tires!

These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!

Test Drive Tips from All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge

ASV

When you are considering purchasing a new vehicle, one of the first things you will do is take it for a test drive, but do you know exactly what you should look for on your test drive? Check out these 5 test drive tips from All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!

Before The Drive

Adjust the seat, mirrors and steering wheel for a comfortable and safe drive. It is important to do this before you start driving so you will have full visibility while you are test driving the vehicle. Also, to determine if you are comfortable driving the vehicle.

Look at all of your Options

Because certain options and powertrains can greatly alter the feel of a vehicle, it’s important to drive the particular model and trim level you intend to purchase. This is very important to drive the particular trim level you intend on purchasing to see how that trim level drives and feels in comparison to a different model and different trim level.

Safety First!

Remember to review the vehicle’s safety features, such as the number of airbags, active-safety electronics, and adjustable seatbelts. You salesperson will be able to answer all of these questions for you and probably mention some features that may interest you about the vehicle.

Ease of Parking

Find an empty space on the street and Parallel Park the vehicle. Can you see or accurately judge where the corners of the vehicle are? Does it fit easily in a normal parking space? This is especially important if you live in in the city or go to downtown shops a lot.

Connect your Phone to the Volvo Sensus Connect Navigation System

Bring your phone along and connect it to the Volvo Sensus Connect to get the full experience to how the entertainment system will function on a day-to-day basis. Try making a call, changing the radio station, adjusting the air conditioning system, etc. to feel the ease of using the vehicle.

These are just a few things to remember when test driving a vehicle that you are interested in purchasing. Be sure to always ask your Sales Person and Sales Manager any questions or concerns that you may have. Here at All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge, we want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your vehicle purchase. We are readily available and look forward to helping you make that decision.

Summer Heat Tech Tips

ASTBR & ASV

We all know how blistering hot it can get in Louisiana during the summer time, and getting into a hot car is never fun. You burn your legs on your hot leather seats, you feel like you need to wear oven mitts to touch your steering wheel and your dripping sweat before you even start your car! Summer can be tough on cars, especially during high temperatures when heat can destroy batteries and stress the cooling system and tires. As a precaution, these vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and car problems. All Star Volvo is here with some awesome summer tech tips to make sure your car is in perfect condition for the hot Louisiana weather.

Burning your legs on a hot leather seats or touching the piercing hot steering wheel is never fun. A cheap way to help prevent this is to invest in a sunshade. A sunshade is designed to keep your seats cooled while your vehicle is parked. It almost looks like aluminum fool stretched across the inside of your windshield. There are also ones designed for the back seats to keep your children’s seats cooled as well. Also, to keep your vehicle cool while it’s in motion, have tinted windows! Tinted windows allow light to pass through but most of it is reflected. Remember that at least 70% of the light needs to pass through the tint in order for it to be legal.

Oil is the lifeblood of your car. It keeps hardworking engine parts running clean, smooth and cool. Most owner’s manuals suggest that you change your oil and oil filter every 7,500 miles. All Star Volvo Technicians suggest every 3,000 miles or three months. The fact is, most of us do a lot of heavy driving during the summer when an engine is more likely to overheat. So at least check your oil before you head out on that road trip with the family.

  • To check your oil, let your car run for a few minutes, then park it on a level surface and shut off the engine. Open the hood and locate the oil dipstick. You’re looking for two things here: the level of oil and how the oil looks. If you’re low on oil, you can either add another quart or simply change the oil completely. The oil should look brownish yellow and clean on the stick. If the oil is a dark color or there’s a lot of dirt and grime in it, then you definitely need an oil change and oil filter replacement.

Don’t leave items in the car. We all know not to keep perishables in the car, but the sun can also affect CDs, DVDs, laptops, cell phones, and toys. Put the items in the trunk or better yet, take them out if you won’t be using them regularly!

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in down south, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Make a birdhouse - ASV

Make a Birdhouse out of Popsicle Sticks

Kids are so intrigued by smallest things, especially birds on birdhouse! So why not make a birdhouse? Visit your local craft store to buy Popsicle sticks and a hot glue gun. Parents, you’ll have to help out with the hot glue gun. After you’re done, hang it up, put some bird feed in it and watch the as the birds come to feed. If you don’t know how to make a birdhouse out of Popsicle sticker here is some help!

Visit the Zoo

Pack some sandwiches and take the day to visit the zoo! The kids will love seeing all the animals. If there is a petting zoo, you know you’ll be in there for hours. If you want to visit the zoo check out the Baton Rouge Zoo or the New Orleans Zoo!

Neighborhood Game Night

Designate one evening a week for some friendly multifamily competition (think kickball, softball, and capture the flag). Keep things fair by designating a different parent to ref and dividing into new teams each time, like dads and daughters versus moms and sons. This Neighborhood Game Night is sure to become a tradition!

Fun at the Pond

There is plenty of things to do by your park’s pond. Bring some bread and feed the ducks. If you a remoted controlled boat or sailboat, you can race it in the water. Or make paper sailboats to race them! This will create some healthy competition and it’s fun to do.

Create a Slip-N-Slide

Grab a tarp out of the garage, a garden house and Dawn dish soap to create the ultimate slip-n-slide. Your kids will stay busy for hours and they’ll love you for it! Just lay down the tarp, pour some soap to make it extra slippery and let it work its magic. If you have a hill on the side of your house we recommend putting the tarp there. You won’t have to use as much soap and the kids will feel like it’s an actual slide!

Play Twister with Colored Shaving Cream

If you have Twister on hand, this is a fun way to spice the game up! The kids will love it and it is so funny watching everyone slip around! Purchase multiple cans of shaving cream and food coloring. Simply empty the contents of the shaving cream into a bucket, drop as many drops as you want of the food coloring and mix it together. Make sure to keep all four of the colors in separate buckets. Once all of the colors are mixed, scoop out a blob of colored shaving cream onto the correct dot on the Twister board. Then you are ready to play Twister! The food coloring will stain your clothing, so make sure to wear old clothes!

Have a Picnic - ASL, ASV

Have a Picnic

Pack your kids favorite sandwiches, snacks and drinks for a picnic! Whether it be in your backyard or at your local park. We know your kids will love eating their lunch outdoors. Just don’t forget the picnic blanket!

Build a Fort

Growing up, we all use to build forts. Now it’s time to teach the kiddos! So grab all the blankets, pillows and stuffed animals in the house to make the ultimate fort! Don’t be afraid to rearrange your house for the day. You’re going to need all the chairs, couches and tables you have! Afterwards, eat dinner, watch movies and make memories!

Chalk Up the Sidewalk

Kids love to color and why not give them a bigger mural? You can buy chalk at Walmart or Target for only a few bucks! Let them fill the driveway and sidewalk with their creative drawings to show the whole neighborhood. Introduce them to your childhood memories and draw a hopscotch board! They’ll love playing the game and you’ll love seeing the smiles on their faces.

Make Ice Cream

This task takes time to create but the kids will love that they made homemade ice cream. Create different flavors and see which one you like the best. For further instructions on how to make homemade ice cream click here!

All these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!
