Colder weather has a knack for causing various problems in vehicles. Cautious drivers may want to make an appointment to have their vehicle’s hoses, fluids and belts inspected before the snow starts to fall. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to repair your wiper blades, either – worn blades can cause smears on the windshield that can severely reduce your ability to see, which can be especially dangerous on icy roads.

Fall Vehicle Exterior Maintenance

There’s plenty of ways the fall and winter weather changes can negatively impact your vehicle’s exterior. In particular, the road salt used to fight against icy roads can hit against and get stuck on the lower parts of your car, especially the quarter panels and front grille. A fresh coat of wax does a wonderful job preventing any exterior damage. You may also want to take the time to repair any paint blemishes, as the colder weather raises the likelihood of them rusting or corroding.
