Now that summer is winding down and the months of autumn are fast approaching, it's a good time to check your vehicle. Fall brings inclementFall Car Insurance Tips weather and quickly precedes the hazardous months of winter, so we've put together these simple DIY tricks to help you get ready for driving in the last part of the year.
  1. Take a look at your fluid levels.
    Checking the fluids in your vehicle now not only keeps your car operating in top condition, but also gives you an opportunity to make sure the fluid levels  are not changing at a rapid pace that could indicate larger automotive issues. Check and change windshield-washer fluids, antifreeze, and brake-fluids. 
  2. Check your spare.
    It is a good idea to check the tire pressure and quality of your spare tire each season to ensure that it will remain usable in case of emergency. It is especially important to look at spare tire quality if your spare tire is suspended underneath your vehicle.
  3. Replace your wipers.
    Since you typically use your wiper blades more in the fall and winter, it is important to replace them each fall to make sure that your blades are able to function properly. Be sure to also replace your rear window wipers, if you have them.
  4. Look at your lights and battery.
    Regular car maintenance calls for a routine inspection of the electrical components of your vehicle. However, now is a great time to double-check your battery for corrosion or loose wires and to make sure that all of the car's lights are working. By tackling any minor issues you find now, such as bulb replacement or corrosion cleanup, can not only keep your car ready for the fall and winter, but can prevent major automotive issues in the future.
  5. Replace filters.
    Engine air filters should be replaced at least twice a year, so right now is a great time to get a new filter. Fresh filters improve fuel economy, emissions, and overall performance.
  6. Review your auto insurance coverage.
    Due to school being back in session, the approaching fall season yields more traffic, time on the road, and pedestrians. You may even find yourself driving your vehicle more frequently than you have been during the summer. Now is a good time to review your current coverage before you get back out on the road. You may want to consider additional coverage to protect you from the additional hazards you may face in the coming months.
