You want to give your car the very best for the fall months in Boise. There are various things that you can do to ensure that your car still gets the performance, even though the weather is colder. You can also be more comfortable as you drive by having a car mechanic check on a few things for you.
One of the first things you need to realize is that batteries are affected by colder weather. This means you want to make sure that the battery is in good condition and that the charging system is working effectively. Be sure that the connections are clean and clear. You may also want to look into replacing your battery if it has been years.
Have your brakes checked. As you drive throughout Idaho, your brakes are going to be tested more throughout the fall and winter them throughout the rest of the year because of ice and snow.
Your tires need to be checked as well. You want to make sure to have sufficient tire tread depth. You may also want to look into replacing your tires with a specialty tire that is capable of gripping the roads more effectively.
Also, schedule an HVAC inspection with a local mechanic. They will be able to check such things as:
- Defroster unit
- Heating system
- Cabin air filter
There may be things you want to replace as well. Check on everything to make sure that your car is in good condition. You may want to replace wiper blades on the front and back windshields. If you are driving in any particularly snowy or icy areas, you may also want to think about snow chains.
