With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Automotive has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!
- Check your battery
Keeping your battery connections clean, tight and corrosion-free are highly important! The summer months were tough on your car battery, but the cold weather can be every tougher if you don’t properly take care of your vehicle’s battery. In addition, if your vehicle’s battery is older than three-years-old, we recommend you look at replacing it sometime soon. Batteries don’t give a warning on when they start failing, so it is always better to be safe than sorry!
- Heater, Defrosters and Wiper Blades
Make sure to check that the heating, ventilating and air conditioning system are working properly. Heating and cooling performance is vital for those cold mornings and hot afternoons and for safety reasons! The last thing you want is to be late to school or work because you’re defroster was not working! In addition, checking your wiper blades is just as important. In Louisiana, we tend to have lots of afternoon showers. This leads to worn out wiper blades and streaky windshields.
Checking your tires, tire pressure and treat depth before seasons change is very important. Uneven wear can indicate a need for wheel alignment. During the colder months, tire pressure should be checked weekly because tires lose pressure when the temperatures drop.
These are just a few things All Star Automotive suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer!
