Fall Maintenance Tips to Prepare Your Car for Cold, Rainy Weather

To keep your car in excellent condition, it’s important to provide seasonal upkeep. As summer comes to an end, use these fall maintenance tips to get your vehicle ready for the cooler weather.

Replace Wiper Blades

New wiper blades are inexpensive and easy to replace, and they make a huge difference in visibility and safety. If it’s been a while since you replaced your car’s wiper blades, take care of them now in anticipation of the fall showers.

Check Tires

When was the last time you had your car’s tires replaced? If you’re not sure, it’s definitely time to inspect their condition. Look to see that the tread is still deep and that there are no signs of wear, like cracks or bulges. If there are, it’s time to get new tires for your car in order to ensure good traction and safe handling.

Check Fluids


Your car needs an oil change three or four times a year, so the start of a new season is a great time to do it. Bring your car to Stokes Automotive and let our team change your car’s oil and filter. This improves efficiency and helps protect your car’s engine from damage. While we’re there, we can check levels on other important fluids, like coolant, transmission, brake, and steering fluid.

If your car needs its oil changed or tires replaced, bring it to Stokes Automotive.
