Essential Fall Service Tasks   

The best way to keep your used vehicle running right is with proper car care all year long. Every season affects your vehicle differently, so here are a few common car service tasks for fall: 

  • Headlight adjustments. In the fall, it gets dark earlier and stays dark later, so you want to be sure you have maximum visibility on every ride. We’ll adjust, clean, and repair your headlights so you can see clearly out on the road.  
  • Tire inspections. If you know you’re going to be driving near snow or ice, you’ll want to change your tires before winter arrives. Even if you’re not ready to change your tires yet, rotations and inspections can ensure maximum control on leafy and wet roads. 
  • Battery inspections. It’s important to get your battery checked after periods of extreme weather. Batteries lose up to 50 percent of their capacity in cold and warm temperatures, which is why checking for any sign of battery wear can keep you safe this fall.
  • Oil changes. The oil in your vehicle helps to capture dirt and debris from the road. Your vehicle will drive more smoothly and efficiently if you clear the summer sand and dust away and start fresh.
