Prep Your Vehicle for the Back to School Carpools

Back to school season is slowly starting to emerge. With the constant back and forth from the drop off zone to the office, it is important to make sure you can rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to be. Whether you are headed back to the office, or dreading your next pick-up shift, here are some helpful tips to ensure your vehicle is both safe and reliable for you, your family, and your carpool.

Keep Your Car Well Maintained 

Manufacturers advise car owners to get their car serviced at least once every 12 months. If you don’t remember when your last service appointment was, that means you are probably due for another one. Here are some key things to remember:


  • Monitor your vehicle’s engine oil, radiator, power steering, brake, and other fluids that will help your car run smoothly.
  • Replace your car battery if necessary. On average, a normal car battery should last around 4-5 years. If your car battery needs replacing, it’s pretty easy to tell.
  • Monitor your vehicles ventilation. Once the summer ends and temperatures start to cool down, you may need that heater once winter hits.
  • As temperature begins to drop, so does tire pressure. Make sure you keep an eye on your tire pressure, and rotate or replace them if needed.
  • If you’re someone that gets skeptical when other people tamper with your vehicle, don’t worry. Some of the routine maintenance like replacing your windshield wipers and headlights can be done on your own. It’s just important to make sure that they are replaced when necessary.
