Halloween is practically already here! Can you believe how fast October went? With all the preparation of getting costumes together, decorating your house, and trying to not eat all the candy you bought for trick-or-treaters, you may have forgotten to keep track of your car’s performance. The auto service experts at Toyota of Orlando want to make sure your car is prepared for driving on Halloween. That’s why we’ve picked out some auto service suggestions that you should look into in order to have a safe Halloween full of treats.
Treat yourself to Halloween auto service
Check your brakes
It’s important to make sure that your brakes are in good working condition before you head out on Halloween. That’s because you never know when exactly you’ll have to stop to avoid an accident. If you’ve been hearing a strange noise when you brake or there’s a lot of vibration in the brake pedal, we recommend getting car maintenance in Orlando just to be safe.
Is it time for tire service?
It’s important to maintain your car tires. You wouldn’t want to have to change your tire while dressed up in a costume instead of enjoying your time at a party. Make sure your tires are inflated at the right pressure. Not only will this prevent your tires from being damaged, it might also increase your fuel efficiency. And if you’re worried about your tread, all you need to do is take a penny, place it upside down with Abraham Lincoln facing out. If you can see the top of his head, it’s time to get that tire replaced.
Working windshield wipers
You never know when a surprise storm might appear. Make sure you’re prepared with working windshield wipers! You can find the perfect set for you at our Toyota parts center. And if you don’t have time to get them professionally changed out, don’t worry! Changing your windshield wipers is an easy DIY auto service that even a beginner can do!
Are your lights shining bright?
Once you get out of the bright lights of Downtown Orlando, it can be pretty dark! That’s why you should make sure your headlights are working properly and are clear. If you notice that your headlights are a little foggy, a quick and easy tip is to clean them with ordinary toothpaste. They’ll be cleared up afterword!
