End-of-Summer Car Maintenance Guide

Even if your summer car care routine was top notch, now is not the time to let up.  With temperatures and humidity levels changing as we enter fall months, there are some maintenance tasks that are practical and will save you time down the road.  Don’t wait until the leaves are falling or there is snow on the ground to check this simple, yet important, car maintenance guide.

3-Step Car Maintenance Guide

1. Start with a vehicle inspection

The first step in your fall-prep car maintenance guide to have an inspection done on your vehicle.  This will help you focus on exactly what your car needs and what should be prioritized.  Your inspection will include test and checks on your battery, fluid levels, lights, all belts and hoses, as well as general transmission work.  Issues with any of these components can get worse as the temperature falls and humidity levels lower.

2. Check your Exterior Accessories

Checking the tread on your tires and wiper blades are very important as the seasons change.

Ragged and worn out wiper blades can affect visibility in harsh weather. If your wiper blades are older than 6 months, give them a thorough check and consider replacing.  Find out what size wiper blades you need here.

Your tire tread should be monitored regularly, but especially during the change of the seasons when temperature levels can affect them the most.  Your tread depth should be 2/32″ deep, otherwise, you may not have decent traction, regardless of the road conditions.

An easy way to test your tire tread is using a penny.  Take a penny, and with Lincoln’s head facing downwards, place in the grooves of your tires.  If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tread is too worn down and it could mean it’s time to buy new tires.

Not sure if you should invest in Winter tires or All-Weather tires? Find out here.

3. Swap Out Your Old Floor Mats

After traveling and going to the beach all summer, it could be time for new floor mats.  Carpeted floor mats are harder to clean and can easily become moldy from residual moisture.  Instead, try rubber all-weather floor mats with grooves to capture dirt, dust, moisture, or anything else you might track in on your shoes.  These mats are easy to clean and perfect for the transition from summer to fall and into the colder months.

Get some of the top rated rubber floor mats here.

Kick off the cooler months with putting your best wheel forward! There are many places that offer free 29-point auto inspections, so it’s not hard to get started on making sure your vehicle is safe, reliable, and ready for whatever the coolers months throw our way.

Why August is the Best Time for Car Buying

Traditionally, when you ask someone when they the best time to buy a car is, they’ll tell you December. It’s common that automakers will offer end-of-year deals and incentives to boost sales for the final quarter.  But what is less known is that there are also incentives to purchasing a vehicle in August.

Historically, August has shown to have the lowest transaction price of the year (a 2.4% decrease versus the average).  The end of summer is when dealers are trying to clear out their aging inventory to make room for new inventory. With such a large volume of vehicles passing through car lots and showrooms, dealers can offer a great flexibility in price in August.  

Back-to-School Car Buying

For growing families, back-to-school time means carpool, soccer practice, and hauling kids around to after-school activities.  As kids get older and bigger, it only makes sense to invest into a larger vehicle that will fit a growing family.

Other families may decide that back-to-school time is a good time of year to buy a safe, reliable car for the new driver in their family or to a child who just got their learner’s permit.  Families may also decide that their new graduate needs a vehicle before heading off to college, so cars with good fuel efficiency, bluetooth capabilities, and navigation are in high demand.

Regardless of the situation, August is a peak time for families who are looking to buy cars. Automakers and dealerships can be motivated by the year end change to move their existing inventory.  

Model Year End Car Buying

With the new year inventory starting in October, many dealerships clear out their older models to make room for their new year models.  So in order to make room, they want to offer great deals to customers. Buying a car in August will allow you to take advantage of the specials that dealerships are running while there is still a good amount of current-year models available.  

SUV Deals

Families and buyers interested in SUVs are in luck if they purchase in August. On average, SUV prices are lower than any other month of the year.  Customers who have been holding out for better pricing will see the best options and availability for savings during this time.

August offers historically high buyer incentives, great discounts, and larger prices drops than other months. Also keep in mind that purchasing a vehicle in the beginning of the month can result in a 1.3% decrease in price or an average of $390 in savings, compared to the rest of the month.  If you find a dealership that is open on Sundays – go then! The largest decrease in average transaction price occurs on Sundays – averaging 4.6% or $1,402 in savings.

Happy Car Buying!
