With Fall finally here, it is the perfect time to start prepping for the cold months. Winter will be here soon enough, and the cold may be brutal on your car or truck. To ensure your vehicle is as safe as possible and does not stall on your daily commutes, we invite you to I-70 Auto Service for an inspection and pick-me-up services. The sooner you take care of your vehicle’s needs, the sooner you’ll have peace-of-mind driving the next several months. Here are our top fall car care tips for you to follow!
Check the Battery
The cold can be unbearable for your battery, leading to failed engine starts. We’d hate for you to be late to work or school with a dead car battery. To best handle the problem, we recommend bringing your car to I-70 Auto Service for a test and inspection to make sure it can hold a porter charge.
Check the Climate Control and Defroster
It can be annoying to step into your car just to see a completely frozen windshield. You might see that a lot in the upcoming months. To save you some time, make sure your defrosters and heater work. That way, you can bundle up and stay warm.
Check Wiper Blades and Washer Fluid
Windshield wiper blades don’t last any longer than one year. And you need a strong pair of wiper blades to clear off heavy piles of snow. We recommend investing in winter wipers and antifreeze windshield wiper blades if you live in a particularly cold area.
Sufficient road grip and traction control may be more challenging in harsh winters, but they are key to keeping you and others safe. Some people like to swap out their tires for colder months for a more rugged tire that offers optimal traction.
At I-70 Auto Service, we strive to keep you and everyone in Kansas City safe. If you are looking for dependable car maintenance, please call or visit our auto repair shop today!
