How to Care for Your Car in the Fall

Fall Car Care | Gossett Audi Memphis | Memphis, TN

Fall in Memphis, Tennessee, means beautiful foliage and colder temperatures, but it also means it’s time for your car to get caught up on maintenance. Be sure to check the following parts to give your car the care it deserves this fall.

Battery

The terminals and cables of your car battery should be tight. If this is not the case, retighten them. If the connections have corrosion, disconnect and clean them using a wire brush.

Headlights

With it getting dark outside earlier and earlier, you need to ensure your headlights will provide plenty of visibility. If they look hazy or cloudy, use a headlight restoration kit to improve their condition and effectiveness.

Windshield wipers

You need to replace your wipers roughly every six to 12 months. If you’ve had the same wipers for a year or if they leave water streaks on your windshield, it’s time to replace them.

Tires

Wet leaves can be a hazard on the road, and you’ll want to make sure your tires have plenty of tread to take on slippery conditions. If they have under a 1/8-inch of tread, don’t wait to get a new set.

If your car is due for any services or parts replacements that you don’t want to handle yourself, bring it to the Gossett Audi Memphis service department, and our technicians will take it from there.
