Get back to school safely with Charlotte car maintenance!

Summer is in full-swing, which means back to school isn’t all that far off (did you hear that, parents?)! Are you and your ride ready to take on the daily drive time? You may want to schedule Charlotte car maintenance to make sure everything’s running smoothly under the hood – no one wants to get stuck on the side of the road when you’re trying to make it before the bell rings! 

What car maintenance should you schedule before back to school? 

What types of Charlotte car maintenance should you think about to prep for back to school? Whether you’re in charge of carpool or about to send your teen off to college for the first time in a new ride, consider things like: 
  • An oil change. Your car needs oil to be able to properly cool and lubricate the engine, which means you should always have a full tank of clean oil at the ready! Routine oil changes in Charlotte are an essential piece of car maintenance, so make sure you schedule one before you get back into the school year grind. 
  • A tire rotation! Your tires need to be rotated in order to extend their life (and save your wallet from a minor heart attack). Schedule a Charlotte tire rotation to get things rolling, and have our techs also take a look at your tire pressure and your alignment before you hit the road again. Remember, this can have a big impact on fuel efficiency and safety, so don't let this type of car maintenance slide! 
  • Brake service. Are your brakes in the best condition they can be? This Charlotte car maintenance is absolutely essential to your safety, as more pedestrians AND traffic will be out on the road during back to school time. Have our Toyota service techs check your brakes, brake pads, brake fluid, brake lines, and rotors to make sure everything is as it should be before you take to the streets! 
  • A coolant system check. Just because it's back to school doesn't mean the temperatures have dropped yet – make sure your car has the coolant it needs to get the job done and keep things cool enough under the hood. You can schedule car maintenance for a radiator and coolant system check in no time at our Charlotte Toyota Service Center!

Here are some other things you might want to have inspected during your Charlotte car maintenance appointment: 
  • Headlights, taillights, and turn signals – are they all illuminating brightly? 
  • Windshield wipers – are they in good enough condition to keep your windshield clear of water? 
  • Battery – is it in good physical shape and still providing all of the charge your car needs? 
  • Spark plugs – are they in good enough shape to get your car running each and every time?
