Are you heading out of town this fall season? Even if you’re planning on sticking around and taking in Central Florida’s fun fall attractions, there are certain steps you should take to prep your car for the change of seasons. Luckily, our Orlando Toyota service center is here to give you a hand! They can recommend the necessary service to help you take on the road, and also set up an appointment to make it happen (AND keep you on a routine Toyota service schedule after the fact). Let’s talk more about how to get your ride ready for fall fun!
Have our Toyota service techs inspect seasonal auto service elements on your car
Tip #1: Check your headlights. Daylight Savings Time is about to end, friends! Come the first Sunday in November we’ll have shorter days, which means much of your daily commute might take place in the dark. Let Toyota of Orlando techs check your headlights to ensure they’re in good condition and don’t need replacement bulbs or restoration.
Tip #2: Make sure your tires are in good shape. Fall means more rain typically, and if you’re heading out of town you may also find yourself driving on wet leaves. That’s why you want to ensure your tires have the proper tread depth (for maximum traction), as well as the proper inflation. (Did you know that inflation levels can also affect fuel efficiency? Save more money on gas and put it toward hot apple cider and pumpkin treats for the road!)
Tip #3: Check your brakes – this goes hand in hand with your tires! When the road are wet or conditions are slippery, Orlando brake service can be a life saver… literally. Make sure your brakes are responsive and that your brake pads are thick enough, and that every other part of the system is doing its job. Our Toyota service techs can check the entire thing over for you!
Tip #4: Have your heating and cooling system inspected. Here in Florida, it’s still hot as blazes outside. You want your A/C to be in top-notch condition until around November. However, if you’re getting out of town for a little fall foliage hunting, you need to ensure that your heating system and your defroster are working properly so you’re comfortable and have maximum visibility. Let Toyota of Orlando’s service techs take a peek under the hood!
Tip #5: Check your windshield wipers! If you’re going to be driving in precipitation, you want great visibility out the windshield. This means having windshield wipers that are in good shape! Have our techs inspect your wipers – they should clear your windshield completely, not leave streaks or smears of water. If you need a replacement set, we offer affordable options in our Orlando Toyota Parts Store, and our techs can install them for you!
