Prepare Your Car for the Fall

Now that the leaves have started to change, school has begun, and the cooler fall weather is in the air, you’ll want to make sure that you perform your fall car maintenance. Not only does routine maintenance help keep your vehicle in tip-top shape, but fall maintenance will also ensure that your vehicle is prepared for the cold weather on its way. Here are a few of the recommended fall car care services you’ll want to plan for.
  • Tire Inspection and Changes – With snowy and icy roads ahead, now is a good time to inspect and service your car’s tires. You’ll also want to schedule a tire changeover soon, making sure your vehicle has winter or snow tires before the first snowflakes fall.
  • Fluid Checks and Changes – Your vehicle has a wide range of fluids and oils that you’ll want to inspect to ensure that they’re full, clean, and ready to do the tasks they’re designed for. One of these fluids should be the engine’s oil. If it’s time for an oil change, don’t delay in getting it done.
  • Battery Tests – No one wants a dead battery, especially in the cold. Make sure that your car’s battery is well-charged and ready to go.
  • Heater and Defroster Checks – Now that the mornings are a bit chilly, you’ll want to see if your car’s heater and defroster are working properly. These are necessary not only to keep you and your loved ones nice and toasty, but also to help you see better.
  • Wiper Blade Replacements – Speaking of seeing better, if your windshield wipers aren’t in good working order, then they won’t be able to give you a good field of view, which can be dangerous.
  • Any Other Service Your Car Needs – If your vehicle is showing signs of wear or has a warning light illuminated, the fall is the perfect time to bring it in for repair.
