9 Steps for a Winter Ready Car

The last thing any driver needs is to break down in cold, harsh winter weather. A vehicle check now before winter arrives is a sensible way to be prepared for inclement weather and avoid the inconvenience of being stranded out in the cold and with the unexpected expense of emergency repairs.

We recommend the following nine easy steps for winterizing your vehicle:

It’s Been a Long Summer, Let’s Talk About Fall Car Care

It’s been a long summer for everyone and we admit, we are a little excited for cooler temperatures for just a short time - is your car ready, too? Here are some key things to prepare for as the sun goes down earlier and the temperatures begin to drop.

Rotating Tires
The best way to preserve tires is through regular maintenance, including regular tire rotations, usually recommended every 5,000 miles. This helps ensure your tires wear evenly, leaving you less likely to experience a tire blowout.

Is Your Vehicle Ready for the Unexpected?

Driving your car day in and day out starts to feel reliable and trustworthy, like it would never let anything go wrong.  As much as we want this to happen, we can never tell when something could go wrong. Unexpected car problems may happen at any time. We value your safety, that’s why we recommend bringing in your vehicle for a Winter Safety Inspection. We will:

Check The Brakes

If you delay having your brakes checked, it poses a higher risk with auto accidents and auto collisions.

Check The Tire Tread

Ride the route.

Let’s protect those noggins and everything else!

Teach your child the rules of the road and practice riding the bike route to school with your child. If it’s been a minute since he rode a bike here are a few friendly reminders.

Always ride on the right side of the road, with traffic, and in a single file. Stop look and listen before crossing the street and always walk your bike across the street. Stay alert, no one likes a distracted rider. Be sure and use a fitted helmet, it might save your life!

The Road to a Long-Lasting Vehicle

Most people buy a vehicle with the intent of keeping it for as long as possible. This is how you maximize enjoyment and minimize the cost of ownership. During the time of ownership, we discover that some cars we like a lot, and some not so much. But the common denominator is this…the better care a vehicle receives, the longer it will last!

The key is to do regular service and maintenance, both for the mechanical systems and to the body and interior. When you keep your vehicle clean and running well, it will take you a long way down the road to a vehicle that lasts and lasts.

Cold Facts About A/C Refrigerant

Your vehicles’ A/C system requires the use of a toxic gas we routinely call “Freon.” Decades ago, all vehicles used R12 Freon. More recently, a safer form came out called Freon R134a. Now, there is a much safer form called R1234yf. These gases cannot be mixed, so your technician needs to be aware of which Freon is used in your vehicle. It’s this gas that delivers the clod charge to the air inside your vehicle and cools the interior.

Safe Driving For New Drivers

Safe driving is primarily about being aware of your surroundings and being respectful of your vehicle's power and others who are sharing the road. It isn’t difficult, but it can make the difference in getting you and others to your destination safely. Unsafe driving puts everyone at risk.

Auto Repair and Service: What to Expect

If you’re having a problem with your car, truck, or SUV, contact us right away and let us know what the issue is. We won’t diagnose your problem over the phone, but we can usually tell you if your car should be towed, or if it can be driven in for repair. Once here, we’ll do a thorough inspection, and provide an estimate of what the repair will cost. We’ll also make you aware of any other areas that may need attention.
