Is Your Honda Ready for the Fall Season?

You're driving an awesome Honda, so life is already great; but the wether is starting to change so you need to make sure your vehicle is ready for the fall season. We have provided you with some tips that will get your Honda in tip-top shape.

Check under the Hood
Check your Honda regularly to prevent expensive costs in the future. Your owner’s manual will illustrate where everything is located and the proper fluid levels to maintain. If your car is leaking fluid, its color may help you determine what it is and locate the source. If you're not comfortable checking it on your own Coggin Honda of Ft. Pierce's service team can help.

Check your fluid levels:
  • Engine oil
  • Coolant
  • Transmission fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Battery fluid
  • Windshield washer fluid 
Check the Tires
  • Check the tires for uneven tread wear -- uneven tread wear can hint at your car needing an alignment
  • Maintain proper tread levels -- use the penny test to ensure enough tread for each tire
  • Check tires -- before hopping on the road, check your tires for nails or other potential hazards
  • Check tire pressure -- maintain proper levels per the psi on your owner’s manual or usually on the driver door jamb
  • Maintain your spare tire -- usually located either inside the car within the trunk/cargo area or outside underneath your vehicle
