Top Autumn Car Care Tips | Toronto, ON

Fall | Toronto, ON
 

As the season changes from summer to autumn, it’s important to keep track of your vehicle’s many components to ensure they last a long time. Take a moment to inspect your car for the following issues and if you notice anything out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate to bring it to Lexus Downtown.

Exterior

Before getting into your Lexus, do a walk-around to check its exterior parts. See if all of the lights are working, including the headlights, high beams, and brake lights. Check the windshield wipers for any cracks, tears, or rust. Finally, inspect the tires for any issues and see if the tread is at a reasonable level. If it’s not, your car could have a hard time gripping the roads when they get slick.

Interior

You don’t want to get inside of a cold car just for the air vents to blow cool air at you. Even though we haven’t encountered winter weather just yet, it’s still good practice to check to ensure that the heat does, in fact, work. If not, you’ll need to bring your vehicle to our service department for repair.

Under the hood

Open the hood of your vehicle and do a quick visual scan to check for anything unusual like hoses or belts out of place. If you think something looks odd, contact our service team for advice. You’ll also want to check the levels of all fluids, including oil, power steering, transmission, brake, and wiper fluid.
