How to Prepare Your Car For Fall

How to Prepare Your Car For Fall


(PHOENIX)– It may not feel like it, but we’re close to the first day of fall. The autumnal equinox- when the sun is directly over the equator – will arrive on September 23. While Arizonans look forward to cooler temperatures, we should also be aware of the seasonal impact to our vehicles.

During the month of August, we started losing daylight. Lossesget bigger in September and October when we lose roughly two to three minutes of daylight every day throughout both months. To ensure nighttime visibility on the road, your Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals (NARPRO) suggest the following:

Check your vehicle’s lights 

– Enlist a partner to check your brake lights, turn signals and brights.
– Lights that are dim or not properly working should be replaced.
– Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean to maximize visibility.
– Make sure headlights are property installed and aligned. Misaimed lights can reduce your ability to see and blind other drivers.

Check wiper blades

– Blades deteriorate faster in sunny, dry climates.
– Replacing is quick and easy and critical if they’re not in good shape.
