Prepare Your Car for Fall Before It’s Too Late
When it comes to vehicle safety, it’s never a good idea to put things off. The end of Summer is quickly approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about how to prepare your car for fall. Follow these easy tips so you’re ready for the cooler, wetter weather before it even arrives.
Check all tires
Between your car and the road, your tires are the only point of contact, so it’s important to keep them in good shape all year round. This fall, make sure all of your tires — including a spare — are properly inflated and have sufficient tread to handle wet and potentially icy roads.
Wash and wax
Keeping your car’s exterior clean is one of the best ways to protect it from the elements. As the rainy season draws near, hit the car wash and be sure to apply a protective layer of wax to seal your car’s paint against the elements.
Replenish emergency kit
Unfortunately, emergencies can happen any time. That’s why it’s imperative to have a good emergency kit stowed in your car all year. This fall, check to make sure your kit includes food, water, a flashlight, batteries, a battery-powered cellphone charger, and something warm to wear.
