Back to School Car Care

Back-to-School is a busy time for students and parents alike. One thing that often gets overlooked is car care maintenance. Consider this car care checklist to help get your student—and their car—ready for a great school year:

  • Check the vitals under the hood, such as levels of engine oil, and coolant, transmission, brake and power steering fluid.
  • Check the battery. Consumer Reports suggests that you have your battery checked if it’s more than two to three years old and your car’s entire charging system checked once a year.
  • Check the tires for the correct pressure and for uneven tread wear, nails or other potential hazards.
  • Check to make sure all the lights on the vehicle are working, including the brake lights.

If you have any concerns after your own inspection, have a certified mechanic perform a safety check to minimize safety issues and get your child to school safely.
