Five Car Maintenance Tips From Acura of Avon

1. Check Wiper Blades, Defroster, and Heater

With leaves falling from trees in Canton and West Hartford, not to mention those rainy days, you want to be sure your windshield is clear for the best possible visibility. At the same time, temperatures will be cooling in the coming months, so you want to be sure both your defroster and heater are in working order for those chillier weeks that are coming.

2. Check Your Car Battery

Those high temperatures during the summer can cause havoc in your vehicle’s battery. Combined with overcharging, you can end up with a much shorter battery life than expected in your car. When checking under the hood, make sure to review your battery connections so that they’re clean, tight, and free of any corrosion. It’s also recommended that when charging your battery, follow the instructions laid out in your owner’s manual to prevent any overcharging.

3. Check Your Vehicle Lights

One of the more overlooked fall car care tips involves your vehicle’s lighting system and making sure everything is in proper working order. Brake lights, headlights, and fog lights make the difference on dark stormy nights, and as the days become shorter, you’ll be relying on them more often.

One old automotive saying goes “See and Be Seen,” and it’s most important when it comes to driving in the fall. If you notice your headlights have poor clarity, it’s best to schedule a headlight restoration service as soon as possible.

4. Check Your Tires

When it comes to your tires, there’s not enough checking that can be done at any given time. The proper air levels in your tires can make the difference when it comes to having steady performance, or having a blowout in Canton. Always be sure to check your tires as soon as the temperatures drop, as lower temperatures can definitely cause your pressure to vary. Be sure to check through your tread depth to note any signs of wear and tear like bald spots or bulges.

5. Check Those Brakes

Fall is just one season away from winter, and it’s expected that the roads around West Hartford will get slippery with all the expected rain and snow. If your brakes seem a little slow, it’s vitally important that you get them fixed; as a weaker brake system means a higher risk of accidents.
