3 Things You Shouldn't Forget To Do With Your Car In The Fall

Fall is in full swing. And there is no better time to prep your vehicle for the mild temperatures that are settling in here in Sacramento, CA. It's always a good idea to make sure that your vehicle is ready to go for the rest of the year.
Of course, pretty much everything will stay the same. The commute to and from work, dropping the kids off and picking them up from practice. But it can't be done without fully knowing your vehicle is going to be OK.
Our ASE-certified mechanics at University Automotive know that a good car is a car that runs well, no matter what time of the year it is. If you are looking for an auto inspection near Roseville, CA, and want to make sure everything is good to go, we'll be happy to help.

In the meantime, here are three things that you really shouldn't forget to do with your car as the fall season continues:

  1. Check the lights
    Your lights will definitely need to be working. Especially the signal lights where you'll want to let people know that you are turning left or right. Without your fellow drivers knowing, you might cause a bit of a fender bender (or worse).
    At University Automotive, we'll make sure everything is in good shape while your vehicle is being inspected. If you are running short on time, you can use one of our pre-inspected loaner cars for the day. We also have free Uber or Lyft rides available to and from the shop to your next destination.
  2. Make sure the tires are in good shape
    The tires might need to be rotated. After all, that should happen every six months. This will help increase their longevity.
    But if you need to get them replaced, University Automotive will get the job done. Our tire replacement service near Carmichael, CA is second to none. Plus, your tires will be backed by a 5 year / 50,000-mile warranty. If you want tires that can last quite a while, we've got a good selection for you to choose from. We take good care of our people here at University Automotive. And we prove that with all the work we put in for every customer.
  3. Test the wipers
    In a state like California, it can snow in one part and be sunny and mild in another. What if you want to make the trip to Tahoe for the weekend with family? Snow flurries are in the forecast, however.
    But you'll be ready knowing that the wipers will be in good working order. Just do a dry run of sorts (not literally, though). Deploy a bit of windshield washer fluid and see how well the wiper blades do.

Prep Your Car For Fall Now!
Fall is already underway. Isn't it about time you made sure your car is in good shape? University Automotive will gladly take a look at your vehicle for a routine inspection. If something needs to be repaired or replaced, they'll fix it all in one day.
The sooner you talk to us about your vehicle, the better off you'll be. Contact us today at 916-260-2448 or visit our shop at 2111 Northrop Ave, Sacramento, CA 95825.

This review is for Cameron and the technicians that worked on my car. I'm from another city and get most of my vehicle work done there. After learning of a bad alternator and other problems, Cameron worked to find the most efficient solution to honor my warranty from the auto shop at home, in order to complete the work here. Many phone calls, numbers to exchange and decisions later, my car was finished! Cameron was incredibly helpful, kind and respectful. I've never had such good customer service at an auto shop. I would definitely come back next time my car needs service!

I dropped my car off for an oil change. I was asked what time I needed it back and they were accommodating and had the car ready when I needed it! They identified some additional service items and included actual pictures of the problem parts. It's really nice to be able to see the broken parts before authorizing the service! Overall great experience working with the people at University Auto.

I always recommend University Automotive to friends and colleagues.
