Fall Vehicle Maintenance Tips

If you've been through a fall and winter season in Michigan, you know the weather can often be unpredictable and can change quickly! It's better to be prepared for the change by making a list of routine maintenance tasks and checking them off by the first week of November. Many vehicle components can be affected by cold weather and the rapid change in temperatures, so it's best to take care of things while the weather is still regularly above 45 degrees. Below are a few items you should take care of this season and our team at Graff Chevrolet in Okemos would be more than happy to help!

  • Have your oil changed
  • Get your tires rotated
  • Have your heating system inspected
  • Get your belts and hoses inspected
  • Repair any windshield damages
  • Build an emergency kit
  • Check your weather stripping
  • Have your brakes inspected
  • Purchase a set of snow tires or have them installed
