Car Care: What You Need to Know About Your Headlights

It’s no secret that vehicles require a lot of maintenance.

While you probably don’t have too hard of a time remembering oil changes and brake inspections, your headlights aren’t always in the front of your mind.

There are plenty of reasons they should be, however.

October is Car Care Month and it’s the perfect time to give your headlights some attention.

Here are some things to think about.

Replace headlights before they burn out
It’s not safe to drive with one of your headlights burnt out.

If you can’t remember the last time you changed your headlights and your vehicle isn’t brand new, it may be time for replacements.

Replace headlights in pairs
You should always change out your headlights in sets.

As your headlights get older, they begin to dim.

When you put a bright, new headlight into your vehicle with an older, dimmer one, it creates an unevenness in your vision.

This can not only inhibit your ability to see as well as you should while driving at night, it can also be a distraction to other drivers.

Know your options
Many people don’t know that there are a lot of choices available when it comes to headlights.

For example, you can buy headlights that better illuminate objects on the side of the road, or lights that are brighter for seeing further ahead on the road.

Once you know what’s available, you can choose the lights that best suit your needs.

It’s all about safety
Though you may not think about them often, your headlights are important parts of your vehicle to consider.

Car Care Month is a great time to have yours checked out or replaced if it’s been a while!
