Getting Your Car Ready for Fall

As the nights draw in and the temperatures drop, it’s time to wrap up and get ready for the cooler seasons ahead. Fall driving can take a toll on your driving and on your vehicle, which is why it’s important to prepare beforehand. Here are some basic tips to help prepare your car for fall.

Get an oil change

Getting an oil change is an essential, regular part of car maintenance. Aim to get the oil changed before the cooler weather arrives to help your vehicle perform better in fall and winter. The oil helps to keep the engine’s components lubricated and healthy while you’re driving.

Top off the fluids

Keeping antifreeze and other fluids topped off in your car is important as the temperatures drop during fall and winter. Since your car will be working harder to sustain its optimal performance, fluids are necessary for all aspects. Additionally, this is a great time to inspect the hoses and belts to ensure they are in good condition.

Check the tires

The cooler months can wreak havoc on tires. Make sure your tires have plenty of tread left for gripping the wet and slick roads. If the tread is wearing thin or you see damage to the tires, make sure to get a new set as soon as possible.
