Just like that, the summer season has come and gone in the blink of an eye. As we fall back into our daily routines, it’s important that we take the necessary steps to transition our vehicle maintenance and driving habits accordingly. Read on for automotive advice and fall car maintenance tips.

Cautious Commute

Summer vacations have winded to a close, the kids are back in school and life is back to the seasonal norm. For many of us this means that we are back to the daily commute and the roads are as busy as ever. Let’s ensure everyone gets home safe and sound by practicing defensive driving, observing the speed limit and remaining alert. Take extra caution when approaching school zones and intersections, as pedestrian traffic and kids aren’t easily visible at all times.

Fall Refresh

During the summer our cars are used to transport everything from camping supplies to our most precious cargo. All the trips back and forth to the summer destinations can take a toll on both your interior and exteriors cleanliness. Banish the build up of dirt and grime by giving your vehicle a thorough cleaning before the crisp and cold late fall air sets in. Use this opportunity to visually inspect your vehicle from top to bottom, watching for any areas that might need attention.

 Mechanically Maintained

What good is a clean car if it doesn’t run? Use the changing seasons as a marker to complete thorough preventive maintenance. Our car maintenance checklist includes topping up your windshield wiper fluid and exterior checks such as inspecting your wiper blades, headlights, brake lights and turn signals to ensure they are still in optimal condition. Combine those simple exterior checks with quality vehicle maintenance including an oil change and having your vehicle inspected by a certified technician.
