Now that the leaves have started to change and there is slight chill in the air, fall is officially on its way. This means it is time to prepare your car for the cold with some fall car care. Read the tips below to get your car ready for the season ahead.
Tires. Your tires are one of the most important parts on your car. Make sure they are in good condition with regular inspections. Look for signs of wear like uneven tread, tread that is too shallow, or bulges in the sidewall. You also need to check the tire pressure to ensure that it is up to the levels suggested in your owner’s manual
Brakes. If your brakes are too worn down, it can become difficult to stop suddenly, and especially when the ground is slick or covered with wet leaves. It can also cause additional damage to the brake rotors, which leads to more costly repairs down the line. Take care of your brakes now and save yourself a major headache.
Battery. A weak battery can fail when the temperatures start to drop. Have your battery tested to make sure it has enough power to make it through the cold. If you haven’t had a replacement in about five years or so, you are quite likely due for an upgrade.
Oil change. If you have neglected your oil changes, get your car back on track. You can schedule an appointment with us here at Mountaineer Mitsubishi. We can catch you up on all of your car’s routine maintenance. Check your owner’s manual to see what you need to do and when.
