Back to School Car Maintenance Tips

Back To School Car Maintenance

Now that school is back in session, there’s a lot to keep track of. You’ve got to balance work, school, rest, and relaxation. In the midst of the bustle, don’t forget to give your car the care and service it needs to get ready for this fall season.

Read the Owner’s Manual

Good car maintenance starts with the owner’s manual. There, you can learn about the basics of your specific vehicle and what it needs, and will be able to find a recommended maintenance schedule for things like oil changes and other services.

Stick to the Schedule

Now that you’ve familiarized yourself with your owner’s manual, follow through by giving your car its recommended regular maintenance. Bring your vehicle into Union Park Honda for an oil change, a brake check, and/or new windshield wipers.

Be Prepared

No matter how well you take care of your vehicle, there’s always a chance of a flat tire or a dead battery. Make sure you have safety equipment for these scenarios, like jumper cables, a properly inflated spare tire, and extra fluids like wiper fluid and oil. It’s also a good idea to keep a blanket or two, some bottled water, and snacks like granola bars. With this safety package, you’ll be prepared to tackle a potential breakdown in your morning commute.


If your vehicle needs any maintenance or a once-over before the cooler months roll in, bring it to Union Park Honda, where our service team is ready and happy to assist you.
