Here in Fremont, California, we enjoy reasonably mild weather all year round. But, this doesn’t mean that we don’t have to prepare for the change in seasons. As summer transitions into fall, it’s time to do some fall car care. Here are a few maintenance tips to get you started.
Change your wipers.
While Fremont summers are dry, the autumn usually brings more rain. Make sure your wipers are in good condition. If they are leaving streaks, stuttering, or have cracks, it is time to replace them.
Inspect your wheels.
Take a good look at your tires and brakes. Make sure you have adequate tread depth and your brake pads aren’t getting too thin.
Check your lights.
As the days get shorter, you’ll be using your headlights more often. Make sure all the exterior lights are working and aimed correctly so you can see the road and other drivers can see you.
Make sure your heater works.
As the temperatures begin to drop, you want to make sure your heater and defroster are in good working order.
Get an overall car checkup.
Have a trained technician take a look under the hood to check for any potential problems.
