Hondas are some of the most reliable vehicles available. But to keep your Honda alive and well for as long as possible, it’s important to give it care and attention when needed. These fall car maintenance tips will help you get started on the road to a good routine schedule.
Peek Under the Hood
The key to good and consistent car maintenance is awareness. Since you’re the only one who drives your car regularly, you’re the only one who can notice changes in performance. Similarly, checking under the hood regularly can help you notice when certain things need attention. Examine parts for obvious cracks or leaks. Check fluid levels and top off when needed.
Prepare for Rain
Good visibility is imperative for safe driving in the rain. Change your windshield wipers before the autumn rain and the winter snow. You can improve visibility even more by using products like Rain-X to treat your windshield.
Check Your Lights
Helping others see you on the road is just as important as your own visibility. Make sure you’ll be seen in rain and fog by cleaning off your headlights, taillights, and brake lights. Replace any bulbs that have burnt out, and consider buying a stock of bulbs for when you need them.
Check Your Battery
An older battery can be unreliable in cold weather. Take your car in for maintenance to have your battery checked to avoid a dead battery later.
