Get your Vehicle Ready for the Rainy Season at Jiffy Lube®
October 5th, 2020
Are You Ready for the Rain?
Is there a time of year when it rains more than others? Have you experienced dry weather for a while and know you’re due for some rain? Are you living in an area where hurricanes land often, which brings lots of rain? If any of these are true, you’re going to want to get your vehicle ready for whatever form of a rainy season you’ll experience. Here are some items you need to check and have serviced before you’re stuck in the rain with a vehicle that leaves you stranded.
We depend on our windshield wipers to keep the water off the front of the vehicle so that we can see what’s going on. Wipers typically offer adjustable speeds to move the water away at faster speeds for harder rain and at slower or intermittent speeds when you’re in a light rainfall. No matter the type of rain, you need your wipers to do the job. If it’s been since the previous rainy season since you replaced the wipers, it’s time to get this done. Visit your local Jiffy Lube® location and let them replace your wiper blades today.
When it’s wet out on the roads, you need to brake sooner than when you’re driving on dry pavement. Even if you give yourself more room and time to slow down, if your brakes aren’t working right, you’re going to run into trouble. Before the rainy season begins, have your brakes checked to make sure you don’t end up being the one that rear-ends another vehicle because your brakes failed you. It’s not a bad idea to have your tires checked at the same time. Jiffy Lube® can handle both of these services for you today.
Can You See In Front of You?
Do you know when it’s going to rain? You might feel you can use weather data to predict the time of day, often, you get caught in rain when you didn’t expect it. When it’s dark and raining, you rely more heavily on your headlights. These lights show you the way and it’s important they are clean and pointed the right way. Make sure your car is ready for the rainy season by asking your local Jiffy Lube® team to clean your headlights and double-check they are level and bright enough.
Be Ready; It’s Going to Rain
The rainy season is coming; are you prepared for it? While you might think you’re ready with your umbrella, rain boots, and raincoat, you need to make sure your vehicle is ready as well. Take your car to your local Jiffy Lube® location and let them help you get your vehicle ready for the rainy season with the services you need.
