Prevent These Autumn Car Problems

September 15th, 2022 by

Autumn is here are we all know what that means — colder weather is on the way. Our service experts at our Maserati service center at Maserati of Omaha have a few tips to help you make sure your car is ready for the fall.


After the hot summer weather, you may notice damage to the seals in your vehicle, which can easily break down from the heat. When your seals have become compromised, you can see rainwater leak into your vehicle (or snow and slush eventually). This not only compromises your vehicle’s interior, but it can also even lead to electrical damage.

Faulty Windshield Wipers

The heat can also damage your windshield wipers, which can leave them prone to breaking more easily. You want to make sure they are prepared for the rain in the fall, as well as the snowy winter months ahead. Double check yours to see if a replacement is due.

Leaf Overflow

It may seem silly, but those gorgeous fall leaves can actually be bad for your vehicle. They can build up on your vehicle, restricting its airflow and also making it difficult to defrost your windshield. The sap and pollen from leaves can even stain your vehicle, so routinely sweep the fallen leaves off your vehicle, and try to avoid parking under trees.

Dead Batteries

Extreme temperatures can be draining on your battery, both hot and cold. So, your battery may not only be suffering after the hot summer, but it may also not be ready for our harsh winters. Have your battery tested to make sure it’s reliable so you don’t find yourself, quite literally, stranded out in the cold.
