With the change in seasons come changes in driving conditions as temperatures drop, and we start to see an increase in rain, ice on the roads, and even a bit of snow in the mountains. Here are some Fall Care Tips to make sure that your car is ready for the fall:
Check your Wiper Blades
Windshield wiper blades do wear down with use and age – and even if you don’t use them very often, hot, dry weather can actually speed up wear. Autumn is a good time to replace them; your new blades will get you through the fall and winter.
Check and Change Your Fluids
As temperatures cool, it’s a good time to make sure that all of your car’s fluids are clean and topped off. When temperatures drop, the fluids in your car can become more viscous, or thicker – which may cause them to move more slowly through the engine.
Check Your Tires and Brakes
Your tires and brakes are perhaps the most important part of your car. As you head into icy road season, you should make sure that the tread on your tires and air pressure is up to par. As temperatures drop, so does the air pressure inside your tires. Brakes should also be checked as replacing brake pads is important if needed before the wet weather arrives.
