Save time & money by prepping your vehicle for cooler weather today.

AAA Car Care wants to provide you tips on what to look for when making sure your car is ready for cold weather and shorter days. If you need help, our expert technicians at AAA Car Care can help you get your vehicle road-ready for cooler weather, including performing a free multi-point inspection, so you can prevent costly repairs down the road.

TIP 1:
Make sure your vehicle lights are working.

As the days get shorter, you’ll be driving in the dark more hours per day. Check to see that interior and exterior lights are working properly, make sure your headlights and taillights are clean, and replace any burnt-out bulbs.
Battery services

TIP 2:
Check your battery.

Carolina summer heat is brutal on car batteries and the last thing you want is to have a dead battery in the dark. Get ahead of potential problems by having your local AAA Car Care Center test your battery for free.
Wiper blades

TIP 3:
Inspect your wiper blades.

Wiper blades are essential for safe driving, and it’s important to maintain effective wiper blades in the changing seasons’ weather conditions. Wiper blades, on average, should be replaced every 6 months, or when they begin to show symptoms of streaking, skipping, bending, or wearing and tearing.
Tire services

TIP 4:
How’s your tire tread?

With seasonal rains coming, it’s the perfect time to make sure you have enough tread on your tires to prevent hydroplaning. If you find that you need new tires, AAA Car Care offers a wide variety of name brands, makes and sizes.
Our 30 plus locations across the Carolinas are here to serve both AAA Members and Non Members for all of their car care needs. Our Members save on select repairs and labor costs, including a 2 year/24,000-mile warranty and a 10% discount on repair labor (up to $50). Book any of your car repair or maintenance needs today.
