Here in Maine, fall tends to come early. With the leaves already starting to change, it’s time to get ready for a new season. Here are a few fall maintenance tips to keep your car in good shape.
Since the days are getting shorter, you will likely be using your headlights more often. Make sure all of your exterior lights are working and angled correctly so you can see the road and other drivers can see you.
Before the weather gets too cold, make sure your car’s heater is working properly. Test your HVAC system to make sure it works at all temperatures and vent configurations.
As temperatures drop, so will the air pressure in your tires. Make sure all your tires are fully inflated in addition to looking for signs of uneven wear or shallow tread.
If you hear a high-pitched squealing sound when you apply the brakes, this could mean your brake pads are running thin and it is time for a new set. Don’t wait to do this as worn out brake pads can potentially damage the rotors.
Just like other times of the year, make sure all of your vehicle’s fluids are clean and at the proper level.
Fall is a beautiful season, and we want to make sure you can enjoy its colorful charms as safely as possible. Set up an appointment with the service department at Quirk Chevrolet Cadillac of Bangor and have any issues taken care of.
