Remember to Maintain Your Car, It Pays Off!

The fall is on our doorstep and the cold season is slowly settling in. It’s the perfect time to schedule a maintenance and tire change appointment for your vehicle.

Vehicle Maintenance Is a Must in the Fall

You want to have everything well in hand to spend a pleasant winter on the road. Make the most of the occasion to have a vehicle inspection done.

Your mechanic will go over the following important components before winter:

  • Windshield wiper blades check
  • Brake check and brake system inspection
  • Fluid check
  • Charging system check
  • Battery and alternator
  • Antifreeze
  • Complete vehicle inspection
  • Winter windshield washer fluid check
  • And much more

With the help of this vehicle maintenance, you’ll be ready to face the winter. Make sure to drive carefully.  

Tire Change

Just like every other year, your vehicle must be equipped with winter tires by December 1st at the latest until March 15, 2024.

It’s a requirement in Quebec:

“The requirement applies to all motor vehicles registered in Quebec, including rental vehicles. However, this requirement does not apply to trailers. Drivers who do not comply are liable to a fine of $200 to $300.”

Ask your mechanic to check for tire wear to ensure they’re still in good condition. Otherwise, he can advise you in the process of choosing good winter tires.

While you’re preparing your vehicle for the next season, I suggest you put a snow brush, a shovel and an emergency kit inside your car trunk. These accessories might come in handy at some point this winter.

Last but not least, driving safely during the cold season is necessary to avoid unpleasant surprises.
