If you are noticing any strange sounds while driving or braking, then you should get your vehicle’s tires and brakes inspected immediately.

Inspect and Maintain Your Wipers and Headlights

Two other aspects of your Toyota vehicle that you can easily manage to help you with driving in the rain are your windshield wipers and headlights. Replacing your windshield wipers is very easy for most Toyota models and should be done every year regardless. While many people can replace dim headlights on their own, we recommend having this service completed by a professional, as headlights are one of the most important features of your vehicle when driving in the rain.
