The return of autumn is a refreshing break between the scorching heat of summer and the frigid winds of winter. It’s also a great opportunity to get caught up on necessary vehicle maintenance. If you’re due for a stop at Gossett VW Germantown this fall, make sure you check these necessary boxes on your maintenance to-do list.
Wipers and lights
Leaves and rain can make it tougher to see clearly during the fall, so take the appropriate steps to make sure you can see as clearly as possible. If you haven’t changed your wipers in six months or a year, you’re likely going to want to swap in a new set of blades — especially if you’re noticing missed spots and streaks. You’ll also want to make sure that all the exterior lights on your vehicle work since the days will be growing shorter — check everything from your headlamps and taillamps to your brake lights and emergency lights.
Having proper traction is important, especially when the road is slick with rain or fallen leaves. To make sure that you maintain composure, take the time to inspect your tires. If you are short of air, fill them up. If you notice cracks, bumps, or a lack of tread, bring your vehicle to Gossett VW Germantown and we will tell you if you’re due for a new set.
