With October being Fall Car Care Month, you may want to start thinking about how you can ensure your vehicle’s longevity and keep it running in the here and now. There are a number of key maintenance steps you should take for your vehicle every autumn; these are just some of the key suggestions to consider.

You should be checking these on the regular, and it’s even more important that you check your levels after a grueling summer. If you need a change or a top off, look no further than Gossett Mazda.
