auto Repair MNKeeping your car well maintained must be done throughout the year, but the practice is especially necessary when the seasons begin to change, along with the conditions of the road. At Fairway Collision and Automotive we focus on providing the best possible service to each customer at every visit, and this helps us make sure our clients and families are always safe on the road. We’ve put together a list of preventative maintenance tasks for you to take care of as the seasons change so that you can keep you and your vehicle as safe as possible.

Tires: Your tires will change as the seasons do, so this is a vital part of seasonal preventative vehicle maintenance. Whether you rotate between summer and winter tires or opt for all-season tires, you’ll need help making tire adjustments as the seasons change to be sure that everything is correctly lined up and rotated for the smoothest drive possible.

Brake Inspection: You’ll have lessened ability to stop on ice and snow, so fall is a great time to have your brakes inspected. The mechanic should check out your calipers, rotors, drums, and pads to be sure that everything is in good shape and not worn down. You may need to have your brake pads changed if you haven’t had it done in a while. This maintenance will provide you with the best chance for a total, clean stop when it’s time to stop the car. You’ll be grateful you took the time to prepare when the roads get slippery.

Tune-Up: Worried that more than one part of your car may need work? Schedule a full tune-up so that a mechanic can check out the entire car before the seasons change. The mechanic will evaluate the ignition, engine, battery, and also scan for codes to be sure that everything is working appropriately. Tune-ups can vary from shop to shop, with no specific standard, so it’s important to mention any issues that you’ve noticed. At Fairway Collision and Automotive we do our best to catch any problems and fix them immediately so that you won’t have to worry about these issues at a later date.
