Fall is on its way, friends! The first official day of the season is September 22, but there’s no time like the present to prepare your Orlando used car for the upcoming change in weather (especially if you’re traveling). While fall weather in Central Florida isn’t as obvious of a change as other states, it’s still good to get ready for changing road conditions and ensure that your vehicle is prepared to take on whatever the new season brings! We can help – our knowledgeable sales associated and technicians have put together a list of ways you can proactively prep your used car in Orlando!
How can you prep your used car in Orlando for seasonal changes?
Regardless of what part of the country you visit, fall means shorter days. This means you should check that the headlights on your Orlando used car are working, as well as your blinkers, taillights, and and hazard lights. You want other drivers to be able to see you clearly in dim or dark conditions, so replace any bulbs that are burnt out. You may even want to bring your used car into our Toyota Service Center to have your headlights cleaned or restored!
- Fall weather can also mean more rain and fog. You should not only know how to safely navigate your vehicle through both types of conditions, but also get it ready for them! Again, make sure your headlights are working, and check your windshield wiper blades. If they’re streaking or smearing the water around, you should get them replaced (we can help you out at our Toyota Service Center!). Another important element to consider for rain and fog is your tires! You want to ensure you have the best traction possible, so make sure your tires are properly inflated, balanced, and rotated. Also make sure they have enough tread on them to help you get from point A to point B safely!
- Just like you want to ensure your wiper blades and tires are ready for wet weather, you should also make sure your brakes are in top-notch condition. If you need to schedule brake service for your used car in Orlando, we can help you out – make sure they’re functioning well before you try to tackle rainy conditions!
- Make sure your defroster works, too! It doesn’t get TOO chilly here in Central Florida during the fall, but it will this winter and if you’re traveling at all before then you need to make sure your heat/defroster are working at maximum capacity. Your defroster helps to clear condensation and fog from your windshield and rear window to ensure your visibility remains high, and this is especially important in low-lit conditions!
