We sat down with our Toyota technicians to see what service appointments you need to be scheduling this fall. Let’s check out what they suggested:
Brake service: If the change of season means taking a trip to see the family up north, your brakes need to be in optimal condition. With more people driving on the highway for the holidays you’ll want to make sure you can come to an immediate stop if necessary. Ensure you have your brake linings, rotors, and drums checked.
Headlight restoration: Do you find yourself squinting even with your headlights on? With fall that will just worsen - shorter days, driving in the rain and foggy mornings will only decrease your visibility. For your safety, schedule an appointment to have your yellowed or burnt-out bulbs restored.
Tire service: Avoid highway sliding on wet roads and leaves by having your tires checked. You want to make sure you have the correct tire pressure and that they are rotated. This will prevent you from having to replace your tires due to uneven tread.
Windshield wiper change: Combat the autumn rain and fog with new wiper blades. After the long summer months of constant rainy driving your wiper blades are most likely due to be replaced. If they are smearing, leaving a milky film, or squeaking you know it’s time.
