With the fall season here, now is the perfect time to take care of some practical fall checklist items to make sure your ride is ready for the season. Living in Canada means that with the arrival of fall, winter’s reliable supply of snow, ice, and less-than-ideal road conditions is not far off!
Cooler weather, less daylight, and higher chances of inclement weather are all reasons you’ll want to keep your eye on a few of these practical things:
Make sure your Car’s Heater Works
You don’t want to find yourself at the beginning of winter without a way to heat your car and defrost your windows!
Check Your Wiper Blades
Poor or old wiper blades can lead to reduced visibility, particularly when you’re trying to clear your windshield of dirt and grime kicked up by other vehicles, snow, or falling leaves in the air!
Check your Tires
Are your tires looking worn out? Worn tires can decrease traction and compromise your safety should you face poor driving conditions.
Check your Brakes
As we all know, brake health is key to driving safety! Make sure that your brakes are not in need of repairs and that they can safely bring your car to a stop in potential icy conditions.
Inspect the Inside
Pop the hood and take a look inside. Make sure you don’t spot any rust, corrosion, or faulty connections. Before winter comes around, you will want to make sure things like your car’s battery is ready for the cold.
Check the Lights
Make sure that your lights are all in good working condition! With shorter day times and more chances you’ll be driving in the dark, be sure that you have good lighting to get you around safely.
So, while you’re enjoying the beauty of the fall season, take some time to make sure you and your car are ready to face the colder weather!
