Get Your Vehicle Ready for Fall in Roswell, GA


Fall has arrived and now is the perfect time to get your vehicle ready for the cooler weather. That’s why Honda Carland wants to let you know about the various steps you can take to mitigate the potential negative impacts of the colder temperatures on your vehicle. Your local Honda dealership in Roswell, Georgia is excited to help our Alpharetta, Marietta, and Atlanta area neighbors keep your vehicle running smoothly all year long. Whether you are looking to maintain your tire health or repair scratches to your car’s paint, the service team at Honda Carland is here to help you evaluate your vehicle’s needs this fall. 

Some of the main elements to keep an eye on for your vehicle include: 

  1. Oil Change - Be sure to change your oil at regular intervals, consulting your car’s owner’s manual as these intervals vary by manufacturer and driving habits

  2. Scratches - Quick repairs of minor scratches can help you avoid rust damage and more major repairs

  3. Wiper Blades - If your wiper blades are leaving streaks on your windshield, it may be time to replace or clean them. Wipers degrade quickly and should be replaced every 6-12 months

  4. Tires - Rotate your tires to ensure even wear, ensure tires are properly inflated, and check your tires’ tread wear to be sure your tires have sufficient tread

  5. Heating System - Evaluate your heating system to ensure all elements are functioning properly, particularly your defroster. Operating your vehicle with a fogged-up windshield can be a safety hazard

  6. Belts and Hoses - Evaluate for cracks, leaks, or wear in the belts or hoses. Check for signs of splitting, fraying, or glazing

  7. Battery - Check to confirm cables and terminals are snug. If connections are corroded or dirty, disconnect the battery and clean terminals. You can also have your battery tested at your local service department

  8. Fluid Levels - Including washer fluids, transmission fluids, coolant, brake fluids, and power steering fluid

  9. Lights - Over time, car headlights can become hazy, compromising visibility and posing a threat to safe operation. Additionally, be sure broken or blown-out bulbs are replaced and all headlights, taillights, brake lights, and flashers are functioning properly

  10. Brakes - Cold weather heightens brake issues as the road has the potential to become slippery from snow and ice

  11. Roadside Emergency Kit -

    • Gloves

    • Flashlight

    • Ice scraper

    • Jumper cables

    • Blanket

    • First aid kit

    • Water
