Don't Let Your Car "Fall" Apart this Season

Fall is in full swing. There's a little extra chill in the air with another Northern Delaware winter just around the corner. The fall season is the perfect time to take care of important automotive maintenance and repair needs before the colder months. 

Thorough Vehicle Inspection

If you haven't had any maintenance done for awhile, you might want to bring your vehicle in to Fox Run Auto for a full inspection. Our automotive technicians will look over your vehicle and our service advisors will provide you with a detailed inspection report. We will outline all our findings and give you a full breakdown of what repairs may be urgent and which may not be necessary right away. We'll also be able to provide you with accurate price estimates for any recommended services. That way, you can decide if and how you want to proceed with any repairs or maintenance procedures.

Fall Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is important throughout the year. You should be getting your oil changed and your tires rotated every 5,000-6,000 miles (maybe more frequently with older cars). You'll want to get your brakes and transmission inspected periodically and serviced as needed. Your brake system is especially important as the weather gets colder and the roads start getting wet and icy. Other items you may want to check on in the fall season include:

  • Windshield Wipers
  • Cooling System
  • Car Battery
  • Heater/Defrosters
  • Headlights, Tail Lights & Other Exterior Lights
  • Tire Treads
  • Wheel Alignment
  • Belts & Hoses

Timing is Everything

As we shift into late fall and early winter, now is the time to take care of many preventative maintenance needs before they become major problems. You want to improve your vehicle's safety, handling and visibility for when driving conditions become less than ideal. Even if there aren't any pressing automotive needs, it's nice to have peace of mind knowing everything is in good shape heading into winter. The Fox Run Auto team will give you honest and upfront advice. Whether it's good news or bad news, we let you know exactly what you need to know before make your own decisions.
