When the weather is cooling down and the kids are back in school, you know that summer has officially come to an end. And after driving your pickup truck around in the heat, especially if you’ve been traveling cross country for some summer adventures, it could definitely use some TLC in order to get back into top-notch performance condition for fall. Thankfully, there are some steps you can take to help your car after a long summer and get it back on the road in the best shape possible!
Check Your Emergency Kit
Part of being a responsible driver is having an emergency kit for your car at the ready, and it’s always good to check your emergency kit as the seasons change. Ideally, you should have jumper cables, a spare tire, some basic tools, emergency contacts, and your car insurance information.
Wash and Clean Out Your Truck
We use our cars a lot during the summer, which means dirt and debris can accumulate both on the outside and inside. That’s why getting your pickup truck a nice carwash and dating is the perfect way to make sure it’s ready for fall! Just make sure to clear out the bed of your truck before going through the car wash.
Take Your Ride in For Maintenance and Repair Service
After driving your car in the summer heat, you’re definitely going to want to take it in to see a mechanic to check on any wear and tear, and to make sure you’re not driving with any faulty parts or leaking fluids. Your tires, brakes, and AC system especially go through a lot during the summer months, so maintenance and repair services for those parts are a must to get everything in top-notch condition for fall.
