Change Wiper BladesWiper blades get overlooked often, even though they are one of the most useful tools when it rains. After a warm summer, the rubber on the blade may be damaged. Cracking and chipping of the blade may occur, leaving streaks and smears behind. For a clear view this fall, be sure to change your wiper blades, if needed.
Apply a Protective Wax CoatWith the hot sun of summer comes damaging rays of light. Give your ride a much-deserved wash and protect the paint with a fresh coat of wax to help prevent damage throughout the fall and winter. During the autumn months, leaves, acorns, and other tree debris can cause scratches and other damage to your car's paint. A good wash and wax may be just want your ride needs!
Fill Up All FluidsTake a little time to check your vehicle's fluid levels. Try to keep all fluids filled completely, that way they don't run low. Windshield wiper fluid is one of the most-used fluids in the winter months to help clear off snow and other debris - be sure to keep this tank filled up throughout the fall months to prevent running out.
Check Your Tire WearTires are one of the most important part of your vehicle. While the roads are typically not icy and slick during the fall, it's a great time to prepare your ride for winter. Take a look at your tires and consider buying new tires, if needed.
