Do you own a Honda or a Toyota? Do you drive a Japanese car that you call your own? If the answer is “yes,” then keep reading — we have three essential fall care tips to keep your import auto running its best. It’s important to know what these tips are so you stay ahead of the curve. Plus, the sooner you follow the tips listed below, the better. 

As always, the fine mechanics here at Thompson Automotive provide Japanese car services to our neighbors located here in the Denver area. We specialize in these types of vehicle makes and we’ll make sure yours is road-ready for the fall and winter months. Just give us a call to schedule a maintenance appointment for your vehicle!

Now let’s dig in, here are the following three fall car care tips to know about: 

Inspect Your Brakes

Inspecting the brakes can be as simple as just taking a drive around the block. You’ll want to see if the brakes are in good condition. You should also listen for any strange noises. Scratching or creaking noises may lead to further issues. Thompson Automotive provides brake repair services from our shop here in Englewood. Plus, our brakes (and all the parts we install) come with an ironclad 3 year/36,000-mile warranty. 

You want your brakes to slow down your vehicle (especially when school buses stop frequently and are always in your path). If you hear what might be an unusual noise from your brakes, switch them out ASAP — we can help you with that!

Rotate Your Tires

Your Japanese car will have a set of tires that may need rotating every six months. That will allow your tires to last longer rather than replace them. Also, you’ll get the deal of a lifetime when you get a free oil change from Thompson Automotive with your tire rotation. It’s all part of what makes our customers near Parker happy.

Remember, your car will need a reliable set of snow tires this winter. The snow on the roads is no joke. And you might slip and slide off the road if you don’t have the right set of tires. 

Get an Annual Inspection

If you haven’t inspected your vehicle this year, then now would be a good time to get it done. Visit our ASE-certified mechanics here near Littleton to check your vehicle from the top down and everything in between. They can also spot issues before they become major problems. 

Not only that, you’ll be able to prep your vehicle for the fall, winter, and the rest of the year ahead. While you are getting your vehicle inspected, you can use one of our pre-owned loaners, so you can still run errands. Or if you need a ride to and from the shop during repairs, we’ll be glad to arrange that for you, too.

Get Your Japanese Car Inspected and Ready Now

If you own a Japanese car that you enjoy driving, be sure to have it inspected soon. Also, you should be prepared for the possibility of having some parts replaced or repaired. Our family-owned and operated garage takes pride in serving our customers. With high-quality parts installed on the same day, your car will look and feel good as new. Now is the time to get it checked out for the fall. Contact Thompson Automotive at 720-664-8969 or stop by our auto shop at 1855 W. Union Ave Unit H, Englewood, CO 80110.
