Fall Car Care Tips

With winter on its way, keeping your car on the road is important. To ensure you’re prepared for driving during the cold months, take special care with a check-up for your car.

working on carYour car’s overall maintenance is always important, but make sure to check these items before the chill in the air turns colder:

  • Tires – Tires should be checked regularly for wear and tear. Make sure to check tire pressure and ensure your tires have sufficient tread for the coming season.
  • Brakes – Make sure to check all the components of your braking system for proper operation. It’s critical to have confidence in your brakes during winter, when ice and snow can cut down on traction.
  • Wiper Blades – For maximum visibility during fall rains and winter snow, check your wiper blades now for wear and replace them if necessary.
  • Oil/Fluids – Inspect for dirty or low oil and ensure that all fluids are topped off to help your vehicle combat the strain of winter driving.

If you think you might not be able to perform these checks yourself, a free 35-point inspection is part of each Mopar Express Lane oil change. Also, don’t forget to protect your vehicle’s interior from the elements. Check the weather stripping for good seals, ensure proper winter floor mats are in place, and make sure your heating and ventilation system is in good working order.
