Car Care Awareness Fall Campaign
Are you Car Care Aware? October is Fall Car Care Month and that means taking a few extra steps to make sure your vehicle is in good operation. This may not only prolong the life of your car but save you time and keep you and your passengers safe. Make sure your coolant levels are topped off with antifreeze to prevent your car from overheating and leaving you stranded. Keeping your check engine light off also ensures your car is not polluting more than necessary, which means better air quality for all of us in the region.
Winter months bring potential driving hazards such as icy roads, so it’s important to prepare by checking your brakes and tires in the fall as the weather cools down. Worn treads on a tire can seriously impact a car’s ability to stop in the rain. If your tread depth is less than 4/32”, you should consider replacing the tires. Also, if you hear squeaking brakes, that is your vehicle’s way of telling you that there may be an issue that needs attention.
