October 4th, 2022 by

When temperatures start to drop near Kalamazoo, it’s time to start prioritizing your Toyota vehicle’s maintenance and repair needs. Fall and Winter months can be brutal on your vehicle, and you don’t want to have a breakdown during the cold, harsh winter weather that’s soon to come. So, before the cold sets in, you should check in with Metro Toyota. Here are a few areas to consider for your vehicle’s quality care.

Tires & Brakes

Some of the most common problems that motorists near Battle Creek and Portage, MI will face this Fall and Winter will have to do with your vehicle’s tires and brakes. Be sure to schedule a service appointment with Metro Toyota for the following check-ups.

  • Make sure that brake pads aren’t worn down or damaged.
  • Monitor your tire pressure so that they don’t wear down too quickly.
  • Check your tire tread depth for damage or excessive wear and tear.

Filter Checks

Your fuel, oil, and air filters need to be checked regularly as part of your Toyota maintenance schedule. However, some motorists forget to do it. During the colder months, especially near Paw Paw, these filters work even harder, so it’s important to have them checked. You can exercise some preventative maintenance by:

  • Check the fuel, air, and oil filters and see if you’re up to date on scheduled maintenance.
  • Change your oil to a winter weight oil to reduce wear and tear on your engine.
  • Stocking up on your vehicle’s filters just in case you can’t go out during the colder months.
