Potholes Can Put A Hole In Your Wallet

It's a safe bet that anywhere you look on the roads, you are sure to find a pothole after this winter. 2020 was sure to end with a surprise, and the brutal winter entering 2021 was the icing on the cake for many! With record-breaking snow in some areas resulting in an unprecedented number of potholes appearing on roads and highways across the country, causing considerable damage and unexpected, costly car owners' repairs.

Four Signs your Car Needs Suspension Work

Our vehicle's suspension system, otherwise known as shocks and struts, is something we often take for granted. Some people believe the suspension is mainly about having a smooth ride. Therefore these repairs aren't as necessary as other maintenance issues like oil changes or brakes. However, having bad suspension can affect your ability to control the vehicle, especially when stopping or turning, so it's in your best interest not to ignore this part of auto repair.

How do you know when it's time for suspension repair? Your vehicle will give you four hints.

Car Priorities

Out of everything in your car, what would you say is the most important? Maybe it’s having a fresh oil change from a Scott’s Automotive & Transmission shop. Maybe it’s having a full tank before you hit the road – but one thing that’s generally overlooked until it’s too late is your brakes. Without them, where would we be? Probably still rolling. Every car needs brakes, it’s inevitable that they’ll need replacement eventually, and it’s better to do it ahead of time before brake failure.

Car Insurance Tips and Tricks

Purchasing car insurance is complicated enough. Between the gecko, the pile of cash with googly eyes, the caveman, and all the other mascots declaring hundreds of dollars in savings, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of misinformation and advertising. What exactly goes into determining how much it will cost to insure your vehicle? Are red cars more expensive?

Winterizing your vehicle is a wise idea!

Winterizing your vehicle is a wise idea, says the Car Care Council.  An investment of an hour or two to have your vehicle checked is all it takes to have peace of mind and help avoid the cost and hassle of a breakdown during severe weather.

“The last thing any driver needs is a vehicle that breaks down in cold, harsh winter weather,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “A vehicle check before the temperatures drop is a sensible way to avoid the inconvenience of being stranded out in the cold and with the unexpected expense of emergency repairs.”

Is it time for new tires?

How do you know if you need new tires?

Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. Wrong size load and speed rating can void your warranty. But one sure way to know when to replace your tires is when treadwear indicators appear. A tire's built-in treadwear indicators are "wear bars" that look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it's time to replace the tire.
