Keeping up with seasonal car maintenance is important to keeping your car running efficiently for years to come. Fall is nearly here which means there’s still time to have your car professionally serviced so you can drive all season long with fewer, if any, issues. Here are a few fall car maintenance items to take care of before the cooler weather arrives.
Sudden and hard stops are bound to happen, no matter how hard you try to avoid them. In order to avoid a collision, you’ll need a properly functioning braking system.
There are quite a few parts to a braking system, but the main ones you’ll need to know are the brake pads and rotors. Without them, you’ll have a lot of trouble coming to a stop. Have your braking system professionally inspected before the cool fall weather sets in.
Functioning headlights and taillights are just as much for your safety as the safety of other drivers. Visibility is key all year round. Perform a walk around of your vehicle inspecting all of the lights. Replace any burnt bulbs with new ones.
Like headlights, windshield wipers are essential to driving in the rain. You should replace your windshield wipers every six months or sooner, depending on how much you use them. Fortunately, replacement wipers are both cheap to replace and install.
