4 Important Fall Car Maintenance Tips

16Fall is the perfect time to perform regular maintenance on your car, especially as we prepare to launch into winter. While winter may not be as brutal here in North Carolina as it is in the northern US, it is still crucial to perform some routine maintenance in the fall to keep your car running smoothly until spring.

  • Test your lights: It’s going to start getting darker sooner. Make sure all lights—headlights, taillights, brake lights, etc.—are in working order. Replace any bulbs that have burnt out.
  • Change your oil: Changing your oil is the most crucial routine maintenance task. The changing of the seasons can serve as your quarterly reminder to check your oil level and get it changed at Nissan of Clinton when you hit your next milestone.
  • Change out your wiper blades: Fall and winter can bring some powerful storms. Make sure your wiper blades can provide clear vision for you by replacing them before you get caught in the rain or snow.
  • Test your battery: Batteries die more frequently in colder weather. Test your battery strength and replace it if necessary.4 Important Fall Car Maintenance Tips
