Although we are still pushing through those summer temperatures, it's time to start thinking about the back to school season and the upcoming autumn weather. Preparing your vehicle for the fall season will ensure that you are safe on the road and that your vehicle is well maintained according to the weather changes.
Summertime can take quite a hit on our vehicles, causing them to wear and tear faster with the warmer temperatures and increased amount of driving. After the summer is over, it's time to evaluate your vehicle and get on top of any maintenance your car needs os that you can travel smoothly throughout the fall and into winter.
The following pre-fall vehicle maintenance checklist includes some of the most important items to keep in mind when preparing your car for the next season.
- Windshield wiper replacement
- Brake system check
- Engine oil change if needed
- Cabin air filter replacement
- Tire air pressure and tread check
- Battery test
- Top off all fluids
- Test heater and defroster
- Check all exterior lights for proper operation
