Is Your College Kid’s Car Ready To Head Back To School?

Professional Auto Mechanic Doing a Preventative Maintenance Check on a Vehicle

Summer has flown by, and our kids will be back on campus again within the next few weeks. Back-to-school season is an exciting time for many–for parents, sending their kids off to college for the first time, and college students, taking that first step into adulthood. For parents, we also recognize that you can’t help but worry about your college kids.  Your kids will likely be too busy with studying, sports, and socializing, and caring for their vehicles may not be top of mind, at least not to them.

The team at Family Auto Service is here to help. Regardless of whether your college kid is attending school online or in-person, they probably won’t have too much spare time for routine preventative maintenance and auto repair. Before your son or daughter begins college, it might be wise to schedule a Family Auto Service visit for preventive care. This way, our technicians can carefully examine your vehicle to ensure it is ready for the year.

When you arrive at Family Auto Service for preventative maintenance, our technicians will examine these components of your engine, among others:

  • Tires and tire pressure
  • Air filters
  • Wipers
  • Exterior and interior lighting
  • Fluid levels, such as your engine oil, power steering, brake, and transmission fluid
  • Windshield wipers, including windshield washer solvent
  • Antifreeze/coolant
  • Battery
  • Braking System
  • Wheel Alignment

When a vehicle is maintained correctly, it is both safer and more dependable. Because sending your kid off to college is a big step, not only for your kid but for you, preventative maintenance is a way to ease your worries. Our technicians will examine your son or daughter’s vehicle for any potential problems, which will reduce the risk of costly and dangerous issues.

Our service techs at any of our 5 locations would be happy to take a look at your car so you won’t have to worry about the condition of your college-bound vehicle.
