Myth: It’s Not Summer Yet, So I Don’t Need Vehicle AC Repair Now

Realizing your vehicle’s AC is not cooling properly may have you feeling pretty thankful that summer isn’t quite here yet. But does that mean you don’t have to worry about vehicle AC repair? Actually, no it doesn’t. What you may not realize is that you actually do use the AC in the winter, as it is engaged whenever you are using the defrost mode.

Top 3 Reasons to Not Ignore Regular Wheel Alignment

Top 3 Reasons to Not Ignore Regular Wheel Alignment

If you are like most people, you probably only consider having a wheel alignment done when you get new tires. However, depending on how much you drive, how you drive, and any “curb checks” that may have occurred, you may need to consider having a wheel alignment done far more often.

The best thing you can do for peace of mind is to include a brake check with your regularly scheduled auto maintenance....

In just about any kind of adverse weather, the difference between arriving safely at your destination or not depends on one important part of your vehicle: the tires. You already know that regular oil changes and maintenance are important to getting a long life from your vehicle, but new tires are how you make sure you get a long life, too.

Get Ready for Winter with Proper Auto Maintenance

Get Ready for Winter with Proper Auto Maintenance

It is common knowledge that your vehicle needs proper auto maintenance to keep it running efficiently and safely. Another reason is that you can often avoid many of the breakdowns that can happen with a neglected vehicle. Breaking down is never a fun thing to have happen, but it is even worse should it happen during the winter. Even if you don’t do auto maintenance as often as you should, it is a smart idea to do it before the temperatures drop and the first flurries float through the air. Doing auto maintenance before the worst of winter arrives...
