Autumn doesn’t come gently to Mississippi like it does to our northern neighbors, with their gradual cooling and lovely changing leaves. Down south, we might not lose much in terms of temperature, but the aggressive fall hurricanes and stormy squalls blowing up from the Gulf can make it a hazardous time to be on the road.
Now is the time to get ahead of the bad weather, so we’ve compiled a quick list of easy fall maintenance tips to keep you and all your passengers safe all season long.
- Check your engine. Folks tend to drive longer and further in the summertime; your engine and/or other components under the hood might be in need of some attention. It’s always a good idea to stay one step ahead of that pesky Check Engine light.
- While you’re at it, change your oil and check your fluids.
- Replace your wiper blades. The rains, they are a-comin’—don’t leave yourself squinting through streaks on your windshield!
- Check your brakes and tires. Again, Mississippians don’t need to worry about early snows and weather of that sort, but southern falls can be troublesome in their own way, with rains, mud, and other such road burdens. Make sure your tire pressure is proper and your brakes are fully functional.
