The Preston Automotive Group wants to make sure that our clients always get the service they need for any upcoming season. Fall brings beautiful scenery; leaves falling and the weather cooling down to a comfortable temperature. However, keep in mind that this lovely fall weather can cause some issues for your vehicle if it is not properly maintained. We have listed out some of the aspects of your vehicle that you may want to check out before the fall season really gets into full swing.
Windshield Wipers – Spring and winter aren’t the only times for intense weather, as autumn also commonly entails late-night thunderstorms and even sometimes snow as you round the season out. A windshield that is dirty could lead to eye fatigue and even safety problems if the issue persists. Make sure that your windshield wipers have blades that are working correctly and replace them if you find any problems or missed spots. You should also make sure that you have enough windshield wiper fluid to keep your windshield completely clean.
Oil – You probably spent much of this past summer on the road, whether it be heading down to the beach for some fun during the day or taking that long road trip that your family has been craving all year. Either way, you’ve probably accrued some mileage on your car, truck or SUV. Make sure that you check your vehicle’s handbook to see how often you should be changing your oil. Having fresh oil can prevent engine problems and keep your fuel economy at the optimal rate. If you need your oil and/or filter changed, then come into one of the Preston Automotive Group’s service areas and get your vehicle back to peak performance.
Cooling/Antifreeze Systems – Even though fall is here, the summer heat may not be completely gone quite yet. Make sure your engine makes it through these last few hot weeks by ensuring that the cooling system has been flushed out and filled back up with coolant that is both factory approved and the right amount. Bring your vehicle into one of the Preston Automotive Group service stations and get your coolant levels checked and refilled, if needed. We can also make sure that your levels of antifreeze are where they should be, so your engine continues to perform how it should as we get closer to winter. So bring your vehicle into a Preston Automotive service department today and get it ready for the fall season under the hood.
