Why You Should Be Wary of Autumn Leaves


European Auto Repair Ann Arbor

Fall brings beautiful, colorful leaves tumbling down to everything below. As pretty as they are, it’s important to be aware that leaves can create potentially dangerous roads and hazardous conditions.

Make Driving Slippery

One of the biggest problems with leaves is that they can make driving slippery, especially when roads are wet. It’s very important to keep a safe braking distance between you and the car in front of you to avoid an accident.

They Can Plug your Car’s Drainage System

If leaves get into the crevices around the trunk of your car, hood or where the windshield wipers sit, micro-drains in those areas can back up, which could lead to water inside your vehicle.

They Can Get into The Air Vents

In the fall you may have heard a “flap, flap, flap” sound coming from your engine. It may be the result of leaves that got sucked into the blower motors and your HVAC system.

Leaves Also Create a Very Inviting Home for Rodents

On cool fall days and even colder winter days, rodents are known to build nests out of the leaves and create a home for themselves … then they may begin to nibble away at your vehicle’s insulation and wiring!
