Now that Labor Day has passed, it’s officially time to get ready for fall. You may have already noticed some orange leaves at the tops of some trees and the Halloween candy at the grocery store, but as you get ready to switch out your wardrobe and decorate your house, don’t forget to take care of your car, too.
Autumn is a great time to make sure your car is ready for the harsh winter conditions. Do it now while the weather is still mild and you can thank yourself later. Follow these simple fall car care tips to make sure you’re ready.
- Wiper blades. Your windshield wiper blades should be replaced every six months. Fall usually means more rain, so you don’t want to hinder your visibility with cracked or torn blades. Also, make sure your washer fluid reservoir is full.
- Have your battery tested. If it is older than three years, it may need to be replaced.’
- Make sure you have adequate tread on your tires and check for any cracks or bulges. Also check your tire pressure—as the temperatures drop, so will the pressure in your tires.
- Get your brakes checked to make sure they are ready to handle any slick roads you may encounter.
