Things you should check in your car before fall
Summer is already coming to an end, which means there are many things you should do to prepare for the cooler weather ahead. The different seasons can even affect driving conditions, which means it is important that your vehicle is just as ready for fall as you are. Today we’re going to take a look at some things you should check in your car before fall arrives. These can range from getting an oil change to having your battery checked.
Check Brakes and Tires
With fall usually comes rain and sometimes even snow, this makes it particularly important to have tires and brakes that respond appropriately. They have to have good stopping power, so it is important to make sure they are in working condition and ready for the inclement weather ahead.
Check all Lights
It is also important to check all headlights, taillights and turn signals. There is much less daylight in the months to come so you will most likely be driving in the dark more often. This makes it even more important to have good visibility while on the road. Vehicle lights help you see and be seen even when it’s dark out.
Replace Wiper Blades
Wiper blades are supposed to completely clear the windshield. If your wipers aren’t doing that, they probably need to be replaced. Wiper blades become cracked or worn and are unable to clear the glass. It is important to have working wipers so you have good visibility in any weather condition.
It is important to get your oil changed regularly, and now would be the perfect time to check your vehicle. Oil can get dirty and cause your vehicle to work much harder than it should. If your vehicle is due for an oil change, you can schedule an appointment today at Wheaton Toyota on the Trail.
