The first day of fall is officially here! And just like the leaves arange their color for the new season, you will need to do the same for your car’s fall auto service. Our expert team at Toyota of North Charlotte put together a list of car services that you should get done at our Toyota Service Center to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. Let’s get into it!
Your fall auto service checklist
- Look at your tires
You want to make sure that your car tires are in good shape for the new season. You won’t be able to utilize our fall driving tips if you’re driving on worn down tires! So, make sure that you have your tires checked for any damages that could have happened to them while driving during your Charlotte auto service, like holes, nails or tears. Also, be sure to check and make sure they have enough tread on them so they are gripping the road and decrease your chance of hydroplaning. And now would also be a great time to get your tires rotated, if you’re overdue for a tire rotation.
- Check your brakes
The fallen leaves and the increased amount of rain will make the roads slicker! That’s why you want to make sure your car brakes are working as they should. You want to make sure that you’re in complete control of your vehicle while you’re behind the wheel and that you can come to a complete stop in a short distance. Call us and set up an appointment to have our experts examine your vehicle’s brakes during your auto service in Charlotte. That way they can look for and solve any problems that they see in your brake system.
- Inspect your battery
You want to test your car battery’s voltage to make sure that it’s in good condition. Car batteries usually only last around three to five years on average. That’s why your fall auto service is a good time to test and possibly replace it so you don’t find yourself stranded because of a dead battery when winter comes around.
- Get efficient windshield wiper blades
Having a clear view of the road is very important! Most people overlook windshield wipers during their routine auto service because they think they aren’t a significant part of their vehicle, but that’s far from the truth! Driving in the rain is hard enough, you don’t need a streaky windshield to impair your vision and take away some of your concentration on the road. Our Charlotte parts store sells great quality windshield wipers for an affordable price!
- Test your heater
Make sure that your car’s heater is working properly before the chilly autumn weather sets in. Your car’s heater will keep you comfortable on drives and it will also let you defrost your fogged-up windows.
