It’s football season! Is your vehicle ready for the trials and tolls of this season?
From busy traffic travelling on game days, hauling kids and equipment to school sports activity, and tailgating before the game to changing fall weather, your car is put to the test every day in the fall. Make sure it can handle everything this season has to throw with these maintenance tips:
- Check your Tires. Cooling temperatures can affect tire pressure, so make sure your tires are properly inflated. This will save you at the pump – the added friction from under-inflated tires means you’ll get fewer miles to the gallon. Make sure you have enough tread to handle rain and early snow, and keep an eye out for uneven wear or bald spots. If you’re not sure if your tire is safe, bring your vehicle into our shop in Holland, MI. We’ll do a quick check to keep you safe on the roads!
- Clean the Trunk. Removing excess weight from the back of your car can help you get more miles to every gallon! You’ll also have more room for the sports gear, equipment, and tailgating snacks you’ll want to carry this season. But don’t leave everything in your car all season… Only carry what you need to save money at the pump.
- Call for maintenance. Keeping up with preventative maintenance is the best way to keep your car safe and ready for the fall roads! Take care of the routine tasks you’ve been putting off over the busy summer, make up with an oil change and alignment, and tackle the fall weather in Holland, MI.
