Vehicle Maintenance Tips for Back-to-School Season

back-to-school season

It’s September which means that temperatures are cooling down, pennant races are heating up and back-to-school season is in full swing!

When you’re balancing work and school schedules, you rely on your vehicle to get you safely to where you need to be every day. A reliable vehicle can make the difference between a chaotic fall and a smooth schedule.

Here are a few tips to keep your family vehicle running smoothly this back-to-school season:

1. Tire Pressure.
As the temperatures cool down this month, your tire pressure could be affected. A quick check with a pressure gauge will make sure you can maximize the life of your tires and improve fuel efficiency – saving you money and headaches galore.

2. Battery Corrosion.
Summertime heat can cause battery corrosion, which leads to problems for your engine if left untreated. Check for corrosion on your battery terminals and bring your vehicle in to our ASE-certified technicians ASAP for testing if you spot any.
