Fall Car Maintenance Tips from Waxwerks

Each season brings with it a new set of demands for you and your car. With fall just over the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about what you can do to prepare your car for inclement weather in the upcoming seasons, including checking your tires for wear as well as preventative windshield replacement.

There are some simple steps you can take to ensure your Indianapolis car is properly prepped for the road during the next few months. Here’s a sample of just a few things you can do to get your car ready from the crew here at Waxwerks.

Replace Wiper Blades: They may not seem like the most important aspect of your car during the drier months of summer, but properly functioning wiper blades are a must-have once precipitation starts turning to frost overnight during fall and winter.

Glass Replacement: Cold weather can cause chips and cracks in your windshield that could expand and shatter. That’s why you should take care of damaged windows with windshield replacement or windshield repair before having shards of glass raining down on you while driving.

Check Tires: Ensure your car’s current tires and spare are up for the driving challenge ahead. Worn treads and bald tires could mean big trouble for you in the months to come. You’re going to need sufficient traction when fall’s cooler temperatures turn to winter’s harsh, icy conditions.

Brake Test: Along with the traction that comes with a well-maintained set of tires, you’re also going to need properly functioning brakes. If your brake pads need changing, now is the time to act. Nobody wants to get caught on an icy overpass with malfunctioning brakes.

Hopefully this will help get you motivated to start some preventative car maintenance before fall turns to winter.
