How to Get Your Vehicle Back to School Ready in Duluth, Georgia

As the school year starts ramping up, it’s time to consider whether your vehicle is back to school ready. Acura Carland wants to help you make sure your vehicle is in great shape and ready to take on the school year with confidence.

  1. Check Headlights, Taillights, and Wipers - With shorter days on the horizon, this is a great opportunity to ensure your lights and windshield wipers are functioning correctly. Replace any lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or not functioning. Check your wiper blades for indications of wear and replace them if necessary.

  2. Have an Annual Brake Inspection - Before carpool season, ensure this important safety feature is functioning at its best. Schedule a brake inspection and keep an eye out for warning signs that your vehicle may need brake services, such as illuminated brake light, or screeching, grinding, or clicking noises when applying brakes.

  3. Check Tires for Underinflation or Excessive Wear - Check tire pressure and refill underinflated tires, including the spare, and look for uneven wear and check tire depth. Place a penny head-down in the tread groove. If the tread does not cover Lincoln’s head, it is time to replace the tires.

  4. Check Under the Hood - To help prevent maintenance issues or potentially costly repairs:

    • Check fluid levels of engine oil coolant, transmission, brake, and power steering fluid. Reference your vehicle’s owner’s manual for proper levels to maintenance

    • If your vehicle is leaking fluid, its color may help you determine what it is and locate the source

    • Consider having your battery tested and replace it if it shows signs of reduced performance
