  • Vehicle Maintenance Tips to Remember for this Fall

    Get Your Brakes Checked If your brakes are starting to sound a little squeaky this fall, make sure you get them checked. Cooler weather is drawing near and you don’t want to have any issues on the side of the road because of some faulty brakes. Failure to get the correct checks, or to make the necessary repairments could make you liable for a driving offence. Get Those Windshield Wipers Fixed A super important thing is to make sure your windshield wipers are as good as new, really! Rain from summer and spring probably did a number on your car. New windshield wipers can help get your car ready for fall and keep you from disaster. Check your Car Emergency Kit If you have used items out of your car emergency kit, you’ll want to take the time to refill it when you can. You’ll need those items when you least expect it, so refilling those items as soon as possible is important. It’s also wise to put extra blankets/pocket warmers in your car, just in case you do get stranded on the side … more
