October is Fall Car Care Month, and although it has come to end, fall car care doesn't stop here. October Fall Car Care Month was created to remind vehicle owners about proper preventative maintenance for your vehicle. October and November are weather changing months, which is the perfect time to get your vehicle in shape for Winter driving and holiday road trips. The Car Care Council reminds car owners during the fall season not to ignore issues with your vehicle and to have your car inspected before going on any road trips or long drives.
Winter can bring lots of rain, ice, and snow, so it is important to check your vehicle’s tires, brakes and windshield wipers to ensure that your car is prepared for the rainy weather. Bald tires can cause your vehicle to lose traction on the road in wet weather conditions. Getting stuck in rainy weather with windshield wipers that aren’t working properly can be extremely dangerous. Windshield wipers need to be replaced at least once a year, and October is a great month to do so.
If it has been a while since your last vehicle inspection or you are planning a road trip this winter to visit family or friends for the holidays, don’t hesitate to give Nerger's Auto Express a call today or request an appointment online. We will help get your vehicle ready and educate you preventative maintenance items that not only keep your vehicle dependable, but also save you money in the long run on repairs.
