How to Prepare Your Buick for Fall

With fall already here, it is a great time to do a seasonal check up on your Buick. The weather that fall brings is quickly followed by the dangerous months of winter which some states can experience. This is why we have put together these simple DIY tips to help you get read of driving in the last few months of the year.

1. Fluid levels

Periodically checking your Buick's fluid levels helps keep your car operating in top condition. Be sure to check and change windshield-washer fluids, antifreeze, and brake-fluids. Also take the opportunity to discover any leaks; if fluid levels are changing at a rapid pace, this could indicate leakage or larger automotive issues.

2. Lights and battery.

Regular car maintenance calls for a routine inspection of the electrical components of your vehicle. However, now is a great time to double-check your battery for corrosion or loose wires and to make sure that all of the car's lights are working. By tackling any minor issues, you find now, such as bulb replacement or corrosion cleanup, you can not only keep your car ready for the fall and winter, but can prevent major automotive issues in the future.

3. Check your spare.

Take the time to check the tire pressure and quality of your spare tire each season to ensure that it will remain usable in case of emergency. Pay close attention to your spare tire quality if your spare is located underneath your vehicle.

4. Replace your wipers.

Since you typically use your wiper blades more in the fall and winter, it's important to replace them each fall to make sure that your blades are functioning properly when you need them most. And don't forget about your rear window wipers, if you have them! With leaves blustering (and eventually snow flying), you don't want to get stuck with a huge rear blind spot.

5. Replace filters.

Engine air filters should be replaced at least twice a year, so right now is a great time to get a new filter. Fresh filters improve fuel economy, emissions, and overall performance.

If your Buick is experiencing any one of these symptoms, please have your nearest trusted repair facility perform and thorough inspection. Shocks and struts should be inspected on a yearly basis at minimum. Replacing suspension components at the first sign of wear will help maintain the performance of your Buick and also keep from other components from failing prematurely trying to compensate.
