Summer is ending and the school year is beginning once again here in Hyannis, Massachusetts. If you’re the parent of a young student attending Barnstable Public Schools, the back-to-school transition is the perfect time to ensure your car is ready for the fall season. Follow this vehicle maintenance checklist to make sure your family’s car is ready for morning drop-offs and afternoon carpool rides.

Replace those brakes

Having operational brakes are crucial so you can stop when a child crosses the street in front of you or a school bus comes to a sudden stop. As pedestrian and school bus traffic increase here in Hyannis, make sure your brake pads and rotors can bring your car to a sudden stop.

Replace wipers & clean the lights

Some mornings can be dark and foggy here in Hyannis, where our coastal town can get very rainy. Ensure you have good visibility when it’s wet or cloudy outside. New wiper blades will keep the raindrops off the windshield. Bright headlamp bulbs and clean lenses can illuminate your path when the sun hasn’t risen yet.
