BMW of Nashville Encourages You to Have Your Car Serviced Before the Back to School Season Arrives


A post shared by BMW (@bmwusa) on

The back to school blues are coming. Kids everywhere will be headed back to classes soon, and with that comes the inevitable school-supply shopping laundry lists, endless trips to and from the store to purchase and return supplies, and wondering whether or not the teacher really needs those baby wipes. But along with all of the things you’ll soon be juggling, you’ll need to ensure your car is in top running order. All your obligations and meetings, not to mention the eventual drives to and from practice, school, and work necessitate having a reliable ride.

At BMW of Nashville, we’ve compiled a quick-reference-guide to back-to-school automotive maintenance. Our aim is to help take at least one thing off your plate. You may not remember whether your child needed a blue folder or red folder. But you’ll at least have a ride to get to the store in time before the mad dash hits.

Back to School Maintenance Guide:

  • Conduct all routine maintenance that is due, or due soon. That includes oil changes, tire rotations, fluid checks and top-offs, and tire pressure checks. Also be sure to have any dash or warning lights looked over.
  • Pack an emergency kit in your vehicle including a flashlight, first-aid-kit, food and water, and blankets. Keep this in your trunk so It doesn’t infringe on passenger space but is available when needed.
  • Clean out your vehicle and keep it organized with compartments. Keep safety equipment easily accessible, not hidden under last week’s takeout.
  • Familiarize yourself with your car, your owner’s manual, and your car’s scheduled service intervals. Adhere to them.
  • Lastly, if your child is the one driving to and from school, remind them of the importance of safe, defensive driving. Prepare them with this checklist.
