Your owner’s manual can recommend a specific oil change schedule for your car. However, it’s usually a good idea to get an oil change every 5,000 miles or so. Timing your oil change with the start of the school year can both give you the opportunity to get your car a general check up and make sure that your engine is running its best with fresh oil.
Plenty of rain comes with the fall months, and you’re going to need to be prepared to drive the kids to school when an umbrella won’t cut it. Change your wiper blades to be prepared for the rainy and foggy season. It’s an inexpensive and easy DIY project that will make for safer driving conditions.
You should be in the habit of checking your tires regularly. They need to have deep tread and the proper PSI to work efficiently and safely. Bring your car to Crossroads Chevrolet for a tire rotation before the school year to get the best gas mileage and safest traction during your daily commute.
