Summer is winding down and Fall is just around the corner. Potential raining season is upon us and now is the perfect time to prepare your vehicle for fall. Whether your car needs a quick tune-up, it’s time for new tires or windshield wipers, or you’re planning on upgrading the family fleet, your AAA membership can help make your vehicle safe, reliable and efficient.
Tire Check & Routine Maintenance
Rainy weather means slippery roads. Your vehicle’s tires are essential to maintaining safety on wet, fall roads as they displace water to help maintain traction. Check your tire pressure and traction and decide if it may be time for a new set of wheels. While you’re at it, have a routine maintenance inspection to make sure everything is in proper working order.
AAA inspects and approves over 7,000 auto repair shops, which are required to meet our tough, exacting standards so that we can make sure our members are satisfied.
Plus, you can save on tire purchases from Discount Tire. Members save $10 off each ‘better’ or ‘best’ model tires at Oregon & Southern Idaho locations.
Windshield Wipers & Headlights
Windshield wipers are essential to maintaining driver safety during unpredictable fall weather, especially during the rain. You’ll want to make sure your windshield wipers are performing up-to-speed.
Similarly, properly working headlights are vital to increasing visibility on the road for you and for other drivers to see you.
Now is a great time to get new wipers, headlights, or even top off your vehicle’s fluids. AND you can use your AAA membership to unlock exclusive discounts on car parts, accessories and more at NAPA Auto Parts.
Let’s be honest – you haven’t had your battery changed or tested in quite a while. Have no fear, AAA is here! Give us a call and we’ll gladly send out a battery technician to check that your car battery is in working order. If not, we can get it replaced so that you’re back on the road in no time.
You can also use our handy battery quote tool and form to learn more about battery replacement and schedule an appointment.
Is your oldest heading off to their first year at college? Did your 16-year-old just get their license and first car? Make sure your AAA membership is up-to-date and your loved ones are also covered. You’ll get peace of mind knowing that they can call on us for emergency roadside services and they’ll enjoy the independence of having their own card and access to all of the discounts, rewards and benefits that come with membership.
Car calling it quits? Maybe it’s time to start searching for a new vehicle, just in time for fall. If you’re looking for a new vehicle for the family or your newest driver, we have some tools for you!
