Fall Car Care is an Important Way to Stay Safe
PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Now that fall is finally upon us, The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: "PBY"), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain, reminds all motorists of the importance of inspecting their vehicles in preparation for the changing weather ahead.
Fall weather can vary wildly across different regions of the United States. For some, fall means warm evening winds, fire season and the necessity of protecting their car’s finish from the damaging effects of ash fallout. In other places, the changing of the leaves brings cooler temperatures and the threat of snow and rain, making headlight, tire and windshield care important.
No matter what region of the U.S. you live in, fall provides an excellent annual opportunity to perform regular maintenance and inspect common wear areas of your car. Making sure your tires are properly inflated and in good working order, windshield wiper blades are clean and the rubber is in good shape, headlights are clear and properly functioning and your vehicle’s brakes, shocks and struts are performing as they should, will make driving this fall and winter safer and more enjoyable.
Pep Boys recommends owners pay special attention to the following areas and look for the following warning signs.
“Taking care of your car is an important part of keeping yourself and others safe,” said Jerry Martinelli, Director of Service at Pep Boys. “As we head into the fall season, now is an ideal time to have your car inspected or inspect it yourself. Our automotive experts will perform a variety of free services, including wiper blade installation, tire and brake inspections, alignment checks and even check engine light scans at any of our locations.
