With the days of summer behind us, it’s time to look forward and prepare for the autumn months ahead. Between work, school, and other activities, fall brings a renewed focus on your productive – if not busy – routine. Whether it’s serving as faithful family transportation, your mobile office, or your link to the jobsite, your GMC truck or SUV plays an important role in your daily routine. 

Likewise, it’s equally important to have the Certified Service experts at your GMC dealership perform routine maintenance on your vehicle. These factory-trained experts are specialists who know exactly what is best for your GMC, allowing it to continue to perform to the Professional Grade standards you expect of it. 

SWITCH GEARS FOR FALL
Be prepared for the changing of the seasons by making sure your GMC is maintained for colder temperatures, rain, and everything else that comes along with fall.

Be sure that your wipers are in proper condition for the weather. If you see streaking on the windshield, hear a screeching sound when you use your wipers, or see bouncing when you operate the wipers, it’s probably time for a new pair. Switching out wipers yourself should be a simple fix, but the Certified Service experts can address this problem for you after a Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection when you come in for a visit.

Wipers aren’t the only components of your vehicle that need attention in the fall. After coming back from a summer break, your tires require a look, too.

Having complete control is crucial when taking on the road ahead, so don’t forget about proper tire care. Worn tires aren’t able to tread well during wet conditions such as rainy fall days, so having optimal traction should be taken seriously.

There are several factors that can cause tire wear, such as your driving style and tire maintenance habits. If you notice that your GMC isn’t moving at the standard you expect, check your tires for wear. A tire’s built-in tread wear indicators look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and become visible as the tire surface wears.

Signs of wear can occur. If you suspect your GMC is performing at anything less than Professional Grade, visit your local Certified Service professionals so they can work to get you back on the road.

LONGER DRIVES, SHORTER DAYS
The importance of keeping your GMC performing at Professional Grade standards for the fall season goes without saying. But to strive for a higher standard, it is crucial to plan ahead to see ahead. Make sure your headlamps are maintained to help you see clearly.

Lighting plays a critical role in safety when driving at night, and with days becoming shorter and shorter, there is no excuse not to maintain your vehicle’s headlamps and taillamps. Never compromise when it comes to safety. See and be seen mile after mile.

A FEW CLICKS FROM FALL-READY
Staying one step ahead and maintaining your GMC for fall doesn’t have to be a difficult task. You can help assure your GMC’s Professional Grade standard with the myGMC mobile app. Take full advantage of online service scheduling, receive notifications of your GMC’s status during a visit, and much more.

When your GMC is serviced, your Certified Service technician may use GM Original Equipment parts, the same parts your GMC was originally built with. Not only that, but Original Equipment parts are backed by competitive limited warranties that include labor so you can feel just as confident driving your GMC as you were when you first drove it. 

It’s another way we help assure that your GMC maintains its Professional Grade stature, a benchmark that your vehicle carries throughout any season.
