Take a look at our top five fall car care tips below, and visit our service center for more helpful advice!

 

 

5 Checks for Fall Car Care

1. Heater, Defroster, and Wiper Blades

The weather in Branford can be unpredictable, so now is a great time to check your climate control systems. Ask your technician to inspect your vehicle’s heating, venting and cooling (HVAC) systems to ensure that you stay cozy all season long. Then, take a look at your windshield wiper blades. If you notice any damage, be sure to grab a new set at our parts department. Otherwise, a quick clean might be all that you need.

2. Battery Check

The heat of the summer can really do a number on your car battery, so we recommend getting a battery check in the fall. Your tech will look at the terminals to make sure they are secure and free of corrosion, and your tech will also assess your battery charging capabilities. If your battery charge level is weak, it’s best to get a replacement before the winter!

3. Light Inspection

Days get shorter in the fall, which means a good set of working lights is more important than ever. You’ll want to get your headlights and taillights inspected, along with brake lights, fog lights, and high-beams if you have them. If your lights are dim, you might need a bulb replacement or a headlight restoration service.

4. Tire Inspection

Your tires are crucial for both performance and safety on the Middletown roads, so you’ll want to take good care of them all year round. For your fall car care routine, we recommend taking your tire air pressure and checking the surface of each tire for wear and tear. If you notice tears or punctures in the rubber or bulging and bald spots in the tread, schedule a service. You might need a replacement. Fall can also be a great time for wheel balance and alignment.

5. Brake Check

Finally, no fall car care routine is complete without a brake check! This will help ensure that your car is good to go for the autumn season, but also for the snowy and icy winter ahead. Your technician will take a look at your entire braking system to make sure everything is working properly, so you can navigate the roads with total peace of mind.
