As the leaves start to change color, it’s a good reminder that it’s time to service your car. You need to prepare for the temperatures to drop and rid it of any damage from the hot summer days. That’s where Mazda service at Auto Express Mazda comes in handy.

Clean Your Car

With summer coming to a close, now’s a good time to give your car a good cleaning. It’s a good idea to rid it of summer’s remnants. It also helps to prepare it for the colder months too. If you don’t already, consider switching to all-season floor mats to help you easily clean up slushy or snowy shoes in your car.

Check Your Fluid Levels

Your engine oil isn’t the only thing that needs to be replenished over time. (Although, you definitely want to change your oil too!) It’s important to check all the fluids under your hood and top them off, if need be.

  • Coolant
  • Windshield wiper fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Transmission fluid

Inspect Your Lightbulbs

Autumn brings on daylight savings time and shorter daylight hours. It’s an important time to ensure that your headlights are still functioning properly so that you have the adequate light you need. You also want to check your brakes and turn signals too, for your safety.

Test Your Battery

Extreme temperatures can really drain your battery. After a hot summer (and in preparation for colder weather), it’s important to test your battery. You don’t want to end up with a car that doesn’t start when you need it to.
