Preparing Your Vehicle for Fall

Posted at Mon, Sep 23, 2019 2:30 PM

Fall has officially arrived and that means more than just cooler temperatures and pumpkin flavors. It's important to make sure your vehicle is prepared for each of the seasons it faces. In Western PA and Eastern Ohio, where our dealerships are located, the seasons can be extremely harsh on your ride. By staying on top of preventative maintenance, you can help to avoid more significant expenses down the road. Here are some ways you can have your vehicle fall-ready in no time! 

Multi-Point Inspection

A multi-point inspection is a great way to ensure your vehicle is ready to go for the fall. At Diehl Automotive, we offer a multi-point inspection service through our ExpressLane (available at Diehl of Butler, Diehl of Robinson, and CarRight in Moon Township). The ExpressLane requires no appointment. However, customers are welcome to schedule a multi-point at any of our locations. The multi-point inspection checks:

Check for Recalls

Millions of people drive around every day with open recalls on their vehicles. Visit your manufacturer's website with your VIN handy to see if your vehicle has an open recall. Each Diehl Automotive location offers recall work for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM vehicles. In Butler, we also serve Volkswagen, Mitsubishi, and Toyota customers. In Grove City, we service Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac. If your vehicle has an open recall and is one of the manufacturers listed above, give the Diehl Auto team nearest you today.

Car Detail

Most people spend a lot of time in their vehicle, so why not make sure it's looking its best? Toss out the old McDonald's cup, clean the change out of your cupholder, and break out the car wash supplies. If you're looking to go the extra mile for your vehicle, give your local detail shop a call. A professional detail will make your ride stand out and have you feeling ready for anything.
