Proper Fall Care for your Car

fall

 

During the fall you will want to make sure your vehicle is in the best condition that it can be in. It is ideal to bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections. This is based on a schedule. The schedule can be found in the owner’s manual or you can call us. You will want to follow this schedule to help ensure all the parts and components are as efficient as they should be when you would need to drive. If there is an issue that you notice, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.

Visibility Checks

The visibility is important because this allows you to see as far ahead of you as possible. You will want to check the windshield wipers to ensure they are free of any damage or cracks to the wipers. If they make a streak mark on the windshield, then the wipers are starting to fail. If you have a van or SUV, chances are you have a back windshield wiper as well. You will want to check the condition of this to ensure that it will be in the best condition when you need it to be.

Check the Headlights

Check the headlights and taillights on your vehicle as well. Make sure that that you check the blinkers as well. When you drive, you will need these to be in proper working order so that you can see the road ahead of you. The lights will also help others see you as you drive. The blinkers are important as well because they alert other drivers and pedestrians where you are turning or the direction you are moving to. Without the blinkers, you may turn into a lane which someone is already trying to pass you from. If you want to double check the lights are in the best condition, bring the vehicle in, and we can inspect it for you.
