Once fall arrives in Northern California, the temperatures get cooler, the weather gets wetter, and the days get shorter. The change in seasons gives you an excellent opportunity to catch up on some important vehicle maintenance. Here are three of the most important service tasks to take care of this autumn.
Check the lights
With the sun setting earlier and rising later, it’s more important than ever to make sure all your car’s lights are working properly. Test the headlights, taillights, daytime running lights, and brake lights. While you’re at it, make sure none of the lenses are clouded or otherwise damaged.
Check the tires
Each season, check your tire treads to ensure that they’re not too worn and can still grip the road. If you can stick a quarter upside-down between treads and still see the top of George Washington’s head, it’s time to replace your tires. Even if they’re still in good shape, you can care for your tires and help them last longer by scheduling a rotation at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo.
Check the battery
Your Honda’s battery worked extra hard on summer’s hottest days, so fall is a good time to have it tested and make sure it still has plenty of life left. You may also want to check the cables and terminals to make sure they’re not loose or corroding.
