Vehicle Maintenance You Should Focus on for the Fall Driving Season

Summer is well and firmly finished and Fall is in full swing. That means colder temperatures, falling foliage, more rain and, often enough, the beginning of harsher road conditions. It often also means that it's time for drivers in Meadville to invest in some seasonal vehicle service.

What Kind of Seasonal Maintenance Should I Pursue?

There are a few things you should generally get done as the season shifts from Summer to Fall.

  • Get an Oil Change. Temperatures dip from warmer to colder in the Fall. An oil change is important because the oil put in your vehicle during the warmer months of spring and summer may not be optimal for chillier temperatures.

  • Windshield Wiper Fluid Check. Fall is often a wetter and dirtier season that Summer, with more debris falling from the sky. Make sure you have enough windshield wiper fluid to handle that.
  • Get Your Tires Changed. As the temperatures begin to fall, the roads in your area can often become more slippery and slick. Winter tires provide a better standard of traction, and you can avoid the winter rush if you get them put on sooner rather than later.
  • Have a General Inspection Performed. The increased cold of Fall and Winter can put a lot of stress on your car. A professional can help to locate any emerging issues so you can handle them before the weather makes them worse.
