As a New England car shop, we love the fall. Fall is a time for apple picking, pumpkin carving, trick or treating with your kids, and of course driving through New England and seeing the beautiful changing leaves. However, those leaves that look beautiful on the trees can cause a real problem for drivers. With a mix of falling leaves and rain driving conditions can vary. Plus with daylight savings time, it is more likely that drivers will be driving after dark when they leave work.
Get Your Brakes Checked This Fall
Whether it has been a while since the last time you had your brakes checked or your brakes are starting to make sounds, you should have your brakes checked soon. Driving conditions are only going to continue to worsen over the next few months. Many drivers put off getting their brakes looked at until winter because they assume the only driving hazard they will have to deal with is black ice, however, wet leaves can cause sliding and a loss of stopping power.
Get Your Headlights & Taillights Repaired This Fall
With fall comes daylight saving, and where you may enjoy the extra hour of sleep for a night or the extra hour of sunlight in the morning as you get ready, the quicker sunset can lead to many problems. That is why it is important to check all of your lights and make sure you are ready to drive at night. Having reliable brights can protect you from running into wildlife or fallen branches due to high winds and rain.
Have Your Suspension & Steering Checked
Your suspension and steering are vital to driving on slick fall roads. Wet leaves provide little traction and can cause your car to slip off of the street. The team at Everett Transmission can help adjust your suspension and make sure that your car is ready to take winding roads and sharp turns in both the fall and the winter.
