Volkswagen Fall Maintenance & Tips

How to Prepare Your Volkswagen for a Kentucky Fall

Strong winds and freezing nights don’t wait for winter. The fall season arrives and the cold starts setting in around many parts of Kentucky. The days of summer sun start to diminish and the cooler, crisp air begins to become a problem for your car. There are lots to do to prepare your vehicle for a Kentucky fall. Bring your vehicle to Bachman Volkswagen in Louisville, KY for proper preparations.

Have an HVAC Inspection

Some Volkswagen amenities only get used during the cold weather months. You may find yourself trying to turn these on once the fall weather sets in. Have a full HVAC inspection from a certified mechanic so you can be sure they’re working and ready to keep both you and your vehicle warm.

The seat warmer function needs to be assessed. Steering wheel warmers should be looked at. The mechanic should also inspect the heater and defrost capabilities to ensure they’re working correctly. Any problem with either of these functions may leave you driving in a cold car. We want to ensure you’re safe and warm.

Get Your Wiper Blades Checked

The fall season tends to bring rain with it. Pouring rain can affect your vision. Get your wiper blades checked and ensure they’re working well so you can keep your visibility at its highest level. A Volkswagen’s wiper blades should be checked at least every 10,000 miles. Never go for more than six months without getting them inspected.

Test and Inspect Your Battery

Cold days can wreak havoc on your battery. Your battery can lose up to 35 percent of its strength once the outside temperature drops to 32 degrees. Once it drops to zero, that percentage rises to 60. Even though most Volkswagen batteries can last up to eight years, they should still be tested and inspected each fall season to ensure they’re up to par. Don’t wake up one morning to a dead car.

Check Your Tires

The tread on your tires needs to be up to par if you hope to maintain stability. A wet road can make it hard to maneuver your Volkswagen and keep it from slipping as you turn or stop. Your tires can also lose pressure in the cold, making it imperative that you get them checked periodically throughout the fall season.

Don’t let a Kentucky fall inhibit your Volkswagen’s abilities. Patrons from Jeffersontown to Middletown, Lyndon, to Hurstbourne can bring their car to Bachman Volkswagen for autumn preparations. You can use the complimentary transportation shuttle or see if a rental car is available while your Volkswagen gets serviced and becomes fully functioning and capable of making it through the impending weather.
