As fall begins in the Puget Sound, it’s time to get your car ready for the rain and cold. Here are 6 car care tips to get your vehicle ready for fall!
Fluid Check: We can give all of your fluids a check to ensure you can get through the fall with fresh fluid.
Lights: Ensure all of the exterior lights are working on your vehicle. With the sun going down sooner, you are more likely to be out driving in the dark.
Preventative Maintenance: Coming in to Bret’s for a preventative maintenance check-up can help you from breakdown or unexpected repair down the road.
Car Wash: It may seem counter-intuitive to get your car washed before the rain starts, but it can help the paint stay and look fresh. With the recent falling ash and dirt from a dry summer, getting a full car scrub down is a great way to start the fall.
Tire Tread: Rainy roads and worn tire tread are not a good combination. Check to see if you need new tires before it becomes unsafe.
Heater and Defroster: Driving with an improperly working heater isn’t fun or safe. Driving with fogged-up windows is an accident waiting to happen. Check front and rear window defrosters to ensure proper working condition. If need be, we can repair your heater and defroster systems.
