When the fall season hits, extra attention should be paid to your tires. Your vehicle cannot properly grip the road with poor tire tread. When it comes to rainy weather, your car could hydroplane if you have insufficient tread depth.

You can have a professional inspect your tires, or you can simply check your tread yourself. To check your own tread, take a penny and insert the head part down into a couple of spots on each tire. If you can see the entire top of the head, your tread is too low, and your tire needs to be replaced.

In the fall, the coolant in your radiator should be flushed. During the warmer seasons, your coolant can break down and corrode your radiator. This will cause cooling problems and your radiator may be in need of repair. Simply flushing out your radiator once per year can save you money in the long run. It is always unsafe to drive with a headlight out especially, in the fall when you may experience fog. Make sure each headlight and taillight functions and replace them if not.
