When you own a car, you will want it to always be safe and reliable when you drive it. One of the most important things you can do is to make sure that it is brought in for regular maintenance inspections. Certain tasks like oil changes, tire rotations, tire alignments, and brake inspections are important to keep the vehicle running like new. If you are not sure how often these should be done, make sure to contact us and we can recommend a schedule that is right for the make and model of your vehicle. Also be aware of any odd noises or sounds that your vehicle might make. This can indicate that there is an issue with the vehicle.
Bumper to bumper inspections are important. This will help to determine if there is an issue with the vehicle. We can check everything from under the hood to the brakes to the lights. Having the vehicle working efficiently is important for the overall condition and longevity of it. We can inspect the headlights and taillights of the vehicle. Doing so will help to improve your visibility. It will also alert others where you are when you are. Check the blinkers as well. This will help to alert those around you what direction you plan on turning. If you do not use the blinker, it could lead to an accident.
Handling when you Drive
Always be aware of how your vehicle handles and drives. If it pulls or jerks in one direction, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. We can inspect the tires, rods, and steering to make sure everything is operating as correctly as possible. A car that swerves suddenly can be dangerous, especially if you hit ice or slick roads. If the steering seems loose, make sure to slow down and drive with caution.
