With Memorial Day weekend coming up, now is the ideal time to have your vehicle in for a bumper to bumper inspection. This will ensure that the vehicle is in a safe and reliable condition to be driven in. If there are any issues that happen between visits, make sure to call us. This way we can inspect the vehicle and what the issue might be. Make sure the vehicle is brought in for regular maintenance. This can be found in the owner’s manual, or we could also advise it.

Traffic Memorial Day Weekend

Remember that now with more traffic on the roads, you will want to leave earlier to allow extra time. Road construction has also started on many of the roads. Right now, it might actually be rare to drive and not encounter any road construction. By leaving early, the frustration of dealing with slow or stopped traffic will decrease. Also remember to leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you. If the vehicle has to slam on the brakes, it will give you enough time to react or adjust your driving.

 

Also make sure that the windshield wipers are in proper working condition. As they age, they will become worn and brittle. After winter is a good time to change them. That way they will be in the best condition possible for the upcoming summer months. If they operate and there are noises, they will need to be replaced. Any worn part can cause streaks or smudge marks as they operate. It will also impair the visibility because it will not be able to efficiently or effectively clear the windshield. If the vehicle has a rear windshield wiper, that should be inspected as well. Make sure to get the size wiper that is recommended in the owner’s manual for your vehicle.
