For Halloween specifically, you're thinking about costumes, candy, and decorations. And while your home may be prepared for the horde of trick-or-treaters, is your car ready to make a Halloween nighttime commute?
Our auto service experts at Toyota of Clermont want to make sure you have a night full of treats and no tricks. That's why we've picked some of the most important parts of your car that you should make sure are in proper working condition before All Hallow's Eve.
Treat your car to auto service before Halloween
There's going to be lots of distractions on Halloween. To ensure your safety and to uphold pedestrian safety, be sure that your car's brakes are in proper working condition. That way, you can come to a complete stop whenever you need to. Signs that your brakes may need auto service in Clermont include strange noises and vibration that is out of the ordinary. Make sure you keep your brakes in good condition so you can avoid brake failure.
You never know what the weather can be like here in Clermont. That's why it's important to have windshield wipers that are doing their job! Without them, you won't have that great of visibility in the rain, especially if it's at night. Be sure to pick out a pair of new wiper blades at our parts center if you need them replaced. And don't worry if you don't have time to bring your car into a service center! Changing your wiper blades is one of the easiest DIY auto service tasks you can do.
With car tire maintenance, you want to make sure that they're inflated to the proper levels and that their tread isn't too worn down. If you keep your tire pressure up, not only will you see an increase in control, you'll also reap the benefits of optimized fuel efficiency. If you're worried about your tires' tread, and easy way to check it is by using a penny. If you stick a penny in the tread and you can see the top of Abraham Lincoln's head, it's time for some new tires.
When it's nighttime or raining, it's important to have clear visibility. That's why, especially on a night like Halloween where people will be out and about, your headlights should be in great working condition. If a bulb is blown, we recommend getting it replaced ASAP. But if your headlights are just foggy, a quick fix is to use ordinary toothpaste to clean them!
