The long, hot summer of 2012 appears to be slowly winding down, and those of us still standing can look forward to approaching moderate temperatures and autumn-like conditions.
But what about our cars? The scorchingly high temps really took a toll on our vehicles. For example, summer travel gives brake pads a heavy workout, resulting in the removal of thin layers. Likewise, summer heat does the most damage to battery life and is often the cause for failure in the winter.
With that said, there’s no time like the present to give your car, truck, SUV or minivan a “present” to ensure its continued reliability and performance.
Mopar is announcing its checklist for Fall car care – 10 ways to practice preventive maintenance on your vehicle before the cold-weather driving season arrives.
“Preventive maintenance is critical for keeping vehicles operating at optimum levels,” said Tricia Hecker, Head of Marketing at Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “Motorists who proactively keep their vehicles in top condition will save a lot of time and money down the road.”
Here are the 10 items on the checklist:
- Wiper Blades
- Shocks and Struts
- Engine Oil
- Fluid Levels
- Engine Belts and Hoses
