OK, we admit it – we don't see TOO much of a weather change here in Orlando when it comes to fall (or any season besides summer, really). However, we do see a few changes here and there (like the end of Daylight Savings) and if you're planning on heading out of state to do some leaf-peeping, then you want to prep your car accordingly. Let Toyota of Orlando help you – here are some auto service tips to help you welcome fall with open arms!
Welcome fall with the right auto service
Tip #1: Get your tires checked. Autumn often brings rainier weather with it and if you're heading out of state for a fall getaway, you're likely to find yourself driving on wet fallen leaves. Make sure your tires are inflated to the right PSI for proper traction and fuel efficiency, and that they have enough tread to grab slippery surfaces with ease. Our auto service for tires is easy and affordable so call Toyota of Orlando to schedule it today.
Tip #2: Make sure your headlights are ready to go. Daylight Savings ends the weekend after Halloween, which means it's going to be getting darker earlier and affecting your daily commute. Have your headlights checked to ensure they're shining brightly and that no bulbs need replacement, and that you don't need to schedule Orlando headlight restoration. Our auto service techs can inspect them and let you know.
Tip #3: Have your battery examined. Fluctuations in temperature can affect your battery and if you're going to be getting out of town, then you want to ensure you have a fully charged battery that's ready for anything. Toyota of Orlando's auto service techs can check the overall condition of it for you, as well as test the voltage.

Tip #4: Inspect your windshield wipers. Like we said, chilly weather is often heralded by rain! Make sure you keep your windshield streak-free in heavy showers by inspecting your wipers ahead of time for damage or aging. Our auto service techs will gladly help you pick out a new pair at our Parts Department and install them for you as well.
Tip #5: Stay on top of brake service. Our techs will check your brakes for you when you come in for any service as part of your free multi-point inspection, but it's important to have working brakes when you're driving on slick roads or roads covered in fallen leaves. Keep up with routine brake service at Toyota of Orlando to save yourself time AND money.
