With the “back to school” season just around the corner, many of you who drive your own cars to campus or a part-time job have an extra set of preparations to make. Now is the perfect time for your vehicle’s maintenance checkup to make sure everything is working properly. We at Jiffy Lube® have a few tips for you to keep your school days clear and free of vehicle problems.

Basic Maintenance

Have you been skipping car maintenance services for your vehicle? When was the last time you topped up fluids for your transmission, coolant, or brakes? This is the right time for you to complete any basic vehicle maintenance.

You should also get your wiper blades, serpentine belts, wires, or spark plugs checked to see if they are working just fine. Our team at Jiffy Lube® can perform those services and make sure your vehicle is ready for school.

Check Your Brakes

Your brakes are another vehicle component that will eventually wear out. Worn-out or defective brakes can make it difficult for you to come to a complete stop, increasing the risk of an accident. To avoid this, it’s important to have them inspected before going back to school. Our professional mechanics at Jiffy Lube® will check the brakes and ensure your vehicle is safe to drive.

Don’t Forget About Your Tires

Has it been a while since you checked the condition of your tires? How are your tire pressure and tread depth? It’s better to double-check them now before going back to school, and our highly skilled team can do that for you. We will ensure your tires are ready to use before you hit the road to school.

Batteries

Did you know that car batteries have a lifespan of three to five years? It’s true. The simplest way to know the life of your car battery is to get them checked. All you have to do is stop by at the nearest Jiffy Lube® location before going back to school. We will ensure your battery has enough charge, the terminals are clean, and the cables are in good condition.

Stay Safe With Working Headlights, Parking Lights, and Turn Signals

It’s time to have your headlights, parking lights, and turn signals checked before school starts. Failing lights can reduce your ability to see the road clearly and make your vehicle more challenging to be seen by other cars. Fortunately, we can do this for you. Visit our location and let our team inspect your car’s turn signals and parking lights. We will also take care of the headlight cleaning.

Get Your Vehicle Ready Before Going Back to School

This may seem overwhelming, but it is always better to go the extra mile with basic maintenance and inspection than end up being sorry you didn’t. By keeping your vehicle in good condition, you can ensure that your school-day driving is worry-free, safe, and pleasant. Pull in at any Jiffy Lube® service center today and let our professional team inspect your tires, brakes, and fluids to give you the assurance you need before school begins.
