It’s National Back to School Month, and Atlantic Salvage can’t believe it’s already time to set the alarms and get new notebooks for our kids! The summer seems to fly by, and we want parents to prepare their teenagers for another school year. As a used auto parts business in MA, here are a few suggestions we have to get their cars ready for their commutes, especially for when they are driving alone!
Give the entire car a good cleaning
Having your child keep the interior and exterior of their car clean not only teaches some responsibility, but it also can improve its longevity. Carpets, upholstery, and paint can all be impacted by neglect, and you will notice a difference.
Rotate, check, or replace tires
With the cooler weather in tow, it’s time to check the air pressure in their tires and also pay attention to their overall wear. With slick New England roads as a big concern, switching out their tires could help prevent a potential accident this winter.
Check and change fluids as needed
It’s no surprise that many teenagers don’t know the first thing about checking their coolant, oil, antifreeze, and other fluids. Be sure to go through this list and set your child up for success this school year.
Test the battery
Bad batteries are one of the top reasons for car break downs, and the last thing you want is your child stuck on the side of the road. They last 3-5 years on average, so be sure to check them to know your child is safe from that problem.
