October is Fall Car Care Month! Keep Your Mercedes-Benz in Tip-Top Shape!

October 5th, 2018 by

October is soon approaching, and that means that Fall Car Care Month will be starting! As we go into the fall and ease into colder weather, the fall season is a perfect time to catch up on your vehicle care. There are many things you can do during Fall Car Care Month to give your beloved Mercedes-Benz some TLC, therefore here are five car care tips from us at Mercedes-Benz of Huntington.

Check the battery

As the weather starts to get cooler, many older batteries tend to start to lose charge. The last thing you would want is to be stuck in the cold with a dead battery! That is why Fall Car Care Month is the perfect time to get your battery inspected, and if needed replace the battery for the new season.

Check wipers

Being able to see is just as important as being seen. With a new season, it is always good to look into whether or not your wiper blades need replacing. If you feel like your windshield wipers are streaking, making chattering noise, or if they have visible signs of wear, now is the time to replace the wiper blades.

Check the fluids

Keeping your fluids topped off and full is important during any time of the year, but it’s a great idea to check your vehicle’s fluids during Fall Car Care Month and have whatever fluids are diminished topped off. Also, if you feel that your fluids are constantly running low, it might be a good idea to get the vehicle inspected for any leaks before the winter begins.

Check the heating and defrosting system

Unfortunately, summer cannot last forever and soon we will have to start cranking up the heat in both our homes, as well as our vehicles. Therefore, now is a good time to get your heating and defrosting system checked and if needed do any repairs. That way you can stay toasty and warm when the cold weather sets in!

Check the tires

Going into the new season, it’s important to go in with as much traction as possible! That’s why you should check your tires for any tread loss or wear that could be problematic later on. While the fall has milder weather, you are going to want to put your “best tire forward” for the icy winter season!
