Fall Vehicle Checklist

It’s the beginning of the fall season, which means it’s time to check in on your vehicle and make sure it’s prepared for cooler weather. Take a look at our simple fall vehicle checklist, and make sure you mark each section off before temperatures drop!

Check Your Tires

Before the roads have a chance to get icy, make sure your tires have sufficient tread and a good grip on the street. If your tires are looking bald, you run the risk of getting into an accident that could have been avoided. It’s important to routinely have your tires checked by a professional. If there’s less than ⅛-inch of tread left, it’s time to replace the worn down tire as soon as possible.

Check Your Brakes

Your brakes should be inspected regularly, as they’re one of the most important parts of your vehicle no matter the season. Check your brake pads and brake fluid, and don’t ignore it if you hear a noise while using your brakes, or if they’re hard to press down. If something doesn’t seem to be working properly, don’t wait to get it fixed. 

Check Your Battery

Cooler weather can have an effect on your battery, so it’s important to get it tested and also check for corrosion. If your battery light is lit up on the dashboard, your lights are dim or it takes longer than usual for the engine to turn over, it’s likely due to your battery needing to be replaced.

Check Your Wipers 

If your windshield wipers are cracked, broken, make noise when you use them or leave streaks all over your windshield, you should go ahead and replace them. It’s dangerous to be caught on the road during a storm with wipers that don’t work properly, and damaged wipers can also scratch up your windshield.
