Fall is back, and it brings with it a set of new challenges for your vehicle. If you’re due for service and maintenance at Gossett Hyundai South, fall is a great time to catch up on car care and get ready for the cooler days ahead.
Take care of your tires and brakes
With wet leaves creating clumps on the road, having the power to stop when you need to is crucial. Make sure that all four tires have a sufficient amount of tread by performing the penny test and monitor for signs of excess wear. You can also visually inspect your brakes for rust, and keep an ear out for squealing or grinding.
Wipe away your troubles
Rainy days, leaves, and less daylight also means that visibility can be lower in the fall. You can counteract this by making sure your headlights and taillights are working properly. Another great step is to swap in a fresh pair of wiper blades — especially if it’s been more than six months to a year since your last replacement. If your current blades smear, squeal, or don’t wipe away water completely, you may be due for a new set.
These are just a couple of prime examples of important fall car care. When it comes to staying on top of your vehicle’s needs, trust the experts at Gossett Hyundai South in Memphis, Tennessee. We’re here for you any time of year, no matter the weather.
