Your vehicle, regardless of whether it’s new or used, or a sedan, SUV, pickup truck, compact vehicle, or anything else new and exciting on the Goffstown roads, needs to be properly maintained throughout the year to ensure it runs properly and lasts you for a long time. After all, not taking care of your vehicle could result in serious expenses on your end or even needing to replace your vehicle all together. During the fall, it’s best to start getting your vehicle prepared for the changing weather conditions ahead. Use the below fall car tips to keep your vehicle maintained and looking its best.

Tires

Your tires work hard throughout the year to help you get from Point A to Point B, so make sure all that hard work isn’t now putting you in danger while you hit the Nashua streets.

  • Check your tire pressure when the tires are cold to ensure you have the right amount of air and that there aren’t any leaks
  • Check the tire tread and replace your tires if they are starting to go bald, which results in lost traction
  • Look for uneven wear and tear on your tires and consider having them rotated before the winter

Performance

What goes on under the hood are the essential parts of your vehicle’s productivity, so you need to ensure everything in that area is not only working, but properly working together.

  • Visit a local automotive store and have them check your battery to ensure you have plenty of power
  • Check your washer fluid levels and be sure you have cold-weather washing fluid in place to tackle the wintery weather and ice
  • Check other pertinent fluid levels and have the vehicle serviced if you notice a leak
  • Check the HVAC system inside your vehicle, as poor heat in the winter will not only decrease your comfort level but will also keep your vehicle from defrosting properly
  • Have your vehicle regularly serviced so that you don’t have to worry about anything when you’re in Manchester
