Maintenance Tasks to Complete in the Fall

The change in season is a great signal for some car care. The following fall maintenance tasks will help you get your vehicle ready for the drop in temperature, storms, and weather changes that you love (and hate) about Wisconsin winters.

Check the battery.

A hot summer can put your car’s battery through the wringer. As fall rolls in and gives way to winter, your battery will be challenged even further. Now is the time to check what strength is left in your battery and replace it if necessary.

Review the tires.

Tires need substantial tread to keep you safely connected to the road, especially when the road is covered in rain, ice, or snow. Check the tread on your tires now before you put your safety at risk in dangerous weather conditions.

Replace the wiper blades.

Fall and winter bring heavy rain and snowfall, and the best way to travel through storms is with a clear windshield. If your wipers are damaged, leaving streaks, or making squeaks, you won’t have a clear view of the road, which puts you and everyone around you at risk. Not only do you want to replace your wiper blades, but you also might want to consider upgrading to winter wiper blades.

Get your vehicle ready for the change in season with a service check at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Summer has returned to Beloit, Wisconsin, and that means it’s time to give your ride a little bit of TLC. Before you set out on your next great American road trip, you’ll want to make sure that you’re up to date on all your summer car maintenance needs.

Tires.

Tires are crucial for smooth, safe driving. Check to ensure that they’re properly inflated and offer a sufficient amount of tread. If it’s been a while since you’ve had them rotated, you can get the job done at Bud Weiser Motors.

Battery.

High temperatures will cause extra stress on an old battery, which can leave you stranded by the roadside. Bring your Cadillac into Bud Weiser Motors, and we’ll perform a check to ensure that your battery is up for the task. If not, we can replace it quickly and easily.

Oil and fluids.

If you’re due for an oil change, don’t wait until after your next road trip. Make sure that your vehicle has enough clean motor oil to get you safely to your destination and back. And while you’re at it, make sure that you have plenty of other key fluids like coolant, transmission fluid, and brake fluid. If you’re not sure where to start, we can help.

Windshield wipers.

Summertime means having to deal with the occasional rain shower, and the last thing you want is to be caught in a downpour with old wiper blades. You should have your wipers replaced about every six months, and you can get this done on the regular when you visit Bud Weiser Motors for routine service.

Air conditioning.

You don’t want to face down a 90-degree day with a busted AC. Before the temperatures begin to soar, test your vehicle’s air conditioning to make sure it’s kicking out clean, cool air. If not, bring your ride in, and we’ll help you beat the heat.

When summer calls, Bud Weiser Motors helps your Cadillac pick up the phone. Stop in for all your summer car maintenance needs, and you’ll be enjoying summer driving in no time.
