It may seem like summer has only just begun, but it won’t be long before we’ll need to start prepping our cars for the Autumn season. Seasonal changes also mean variations in road conditions, so it’s always beneficial to plan ahead. Here are some top tips for preparing your Porsche for the Autumn months.
Braking can become harder when roads are wet and covered with fallen leaves. It’s important to get your brakes checked by an expert and to check your brake fluid too!
It’s vital that your tyres have tread and grip to prevent slippages on wet roads. Ensure you have your tyres checked regularly for tread depth and wear. Changing temperatures can cause air in your tyres to condense, so check your tyres are properly inflated and don’t forget your spare wheel!
With the days getting shorter and the nights longer, lights are essential for your safety. Get a specialist to check over your headlights, taillights, parking lights, brake lights, fog lights and emergency lights in preparation for autumn.
Get your battery tested by a Porsche specialist to ensure it’s functioning effectively. It’s also a good idea to check for any cracks, corrosion and dirt, as well as the battery fluid.
As the temperatures drop, antifreeze is essential to regulate your engine’s temperature and ensure it runs properly. It’s important to check your antifreeze with the colder months approaching, particularly as it may have become diluted during the summer time due to the addition of engine coolant.
Heaters, defrosters and wipers
Ensure that your heating system is in full working order and check your wiper blades for any cracks or tears which may have occurred over the summer months. Your wipers should be lifted periodically and wiped with a damp cloth to remove grit and prevent them from causing damage to in your windscreen. If there are is any damage to your wipers, you will need to get them replaced.
