Alabama isn’t known for its treacherous winters, but the winter months can still be tough on cars in Fort Payne, AL. If you’ve let auto maintenance slide over the summer, the fall is a great time to take care of your car. At Attain Insurance, we’ve collected a short list of items to check this fall. Taking a moment or two to make sure your car’s properly cared for will help it run well when cold weather comes.
Fall Auto Maintenance Items
Most drivers in Fort Payne don’t install winter tires and winter wipers on their cars, but it’s still a good idea to check these and take care of other basic maintenance items in the fall. As school resumes and schedules calm down from summer, this is the time of year that most drivers are finally able to take care of their cars. Specific things to do include the following:
- have your car’s tires rotated and it’s oil changed
- change your car’s windshield wipers if they’re smearing
- check your car’s emergency kit
If you don’t have an emergency kit in your car, now’s the perfect time to make one. Put together some water, food, a flashlight and blanket, just in case you break down.
