Caring For Your Car This Fall

BAY CITY, Mich. – It's time for bonfires, sweatshirts, cider, hayrides, and football! This fall season in Michigan is bound to be full of fun, excitement, and unforgettable memories with friends and family. However, we all know how unpredictable Michigan weather can be! At Graff Bay City, we want to make sure that you're prepared for any changes in weather so that you can get back to enjoying all the fun fall has to offer. Caring for your car this fall is easy and can make a huge difference when the winter weather hits Michigan. Important components such as your windshield, belts and hoses, heating and ventilation system, emergency kit, and weather strips can keep you warm, safe, and secure when the temperatures begin to drop. Read on to learn the importance of each component and how to know when they need to be looked at or replaced.

Caring For Your Car This Fall

Windshield Care

Caring For Your Car This Fall

Your vehicle's windshield is one of the most important safety components in your vehicle. Not only does it protect you from outside elements like wind, debris, and precipitation, but it also helps to keep your vehicle's structural integrity intact in the event of a collision or rollover. Read up on our Windshield Care page to find out why chips and cracks in your windshield should be repaired right away and how to keep your windshield in good condition this fall season.

Belts & Hoses

Without belts and hoses, your vehicle's engine wouldn't be able to run at all! Learn about the importance of your belts and hoses, how to know when they need replacing, and how to inspect them to make sure they are working properly on our Belts & Hoses page. If you need to have your belts inspected or replaced, schedule an appointment with us right away! We can have them looked at and fixed in no time!

Heating & Ventilation System

Caring For Your Car This Fall

Once the temperature drops in Michigan, your heating and ventilation system can make the difference between you and a cold drive to work in the morning. Eventually, though, it will become a real safety concern to have a working heating system when the freezing Winter weather comes. Also, you'll need heat for your defroster as well to help clear your windshield off. Read our Heating & Ventilation System Maintenance page to find out how your heating system works, what you can do to keep it running well, and what to do if you discover a problem. 

Emergency Kit

Caring For Your Car This Fall

It never hurts to be prepared for any situation, especially while on the road. You never know when an accident or emergency situation can occur, which is why keeping an emergency kit in your vehicle can make all the difference. Check our Emergency Kit page to find a list of essential items you should keep in your emergency kit year-round and important items to keep during the snowy season. Need help putting together an emergency kit? Let us know! We're happy to provide suggestions of what to include in your kit.

Weather Stripping

Caring For Your Car This Fall

Your vehicle's weather strips (the black rubber strips on the edges of your windshield, door, and windows) protect you and your passengers from outside weather. Weather strips prevent dirt, water, and other weather hazards from entering your vehicle, keeping you and your passengers clean and dry! Our Weather Stripping page is full of information on where your weather strips are located, when they need to be looked at, and how to find out whether or not your weather strips need to be replaced.

Caring for your car this fall only takes a few minutes and can make all the difference once the cold weather sets in! With our Fall Car Care guide, you'll be prepared to take on the snowy months with new and quality components in your vehicle.
