Fall is officially here, and you know what that means! No, we're not talking about a number of things that are pumpkin flavored. A change of season may not have an immediate effect here in Clermont, but factors like precipitation and shorter days can put some strain on your car. Our auto service experts at Toyota of Clermont want to make sure your car is prepared for fall. That's why we've created a guide to help you with your questions on car maintenance for fall.

What auto service appointments should be made for fall?

Why does the start of fall make a difference and what type of service you should get for your Clermont Toyota? There a bunch of factors that can make an impact on your vehicle in fall! These include:

  • Fewer hours of daylight
  • Higher precipitation
  • The start of a busy holiday season

All of these factors combined can take its toll on your car. That's why we recommend bring it in before you get even busier to make sure your car is properly prepared for the fall season. Some auto services we recommend include:

Headlight service - It's important to get your headlights checked before we start losing daylight! Daylight Saving Time ends on November 2, so you still have a bit of time. But to make sure you have high visibility during the fall season, make sure you get your lights checked out by one of our expert service techs in Clermont.

Brake service - If you plan on hitting the road to visit family and friends this fall, make sure you get your brakes checked! There will be a lot more people on the road, and that means more variables that you have to be ready for. Keeping your brakes in good condition help you with safe driving in Clermont and wherever else you go.

Tire service - While we may not have to worry about icy roads in Central Florida, slick roads and wet leaves and pine needles can be an issue. That's especially true if the tread on your tires is worn down! Make sure your Clermont car tires are in good shape by having them checked at our service center. And if you need a new set or are looking for products to maintain their condition, our auto service experts will be there to help you.

Some other services that we recommend getting before you take any long trips this fall include:
