Is Your Vehicle Ready For Fall?

At this time of year, there is less daylight each day. There is more rain in the forecast, and our trips for after-school and evening meetings are now ending at dusk or in the dark. This is the time to play it safe by changing all the wiper blades on your vehicle so you’re ready for any changes in the weather.

Have You Had Your Battery Checked Lately?

Your vehicle’s battery has a lot to do! It provides electrical power to start the engine. It sends power to operate all of the cabin accessories, such as the stereo, lighting, and the blower motor for the A/C and defroster. It powers the instrument panel so we can see what our vehicle is doing.

And as vehicles get more complex, even more systems are added, such as navigation, engine, and transmission management, Wi-Fi, lane departure, self-driving modes and much more.

Smell the Signs

Most new vehicles start with a "new car smell," and while that is satisfying, there are other specific odors that motorists should never ignore. Identifying these suspect smells early on can help car owners be aware and avoid the hassle and expense of an unexpected breakdown.

Unusual smells can be a sign of serious, and potentially costly, trouble for your vehicle. By acting quickly and making necessary repairs, you will be able to breathe easy knowing there is no harmful damage to your car.

We recommend keeping your nose out for the following six warning signs:

Start Your Engines

The beginning of racing season is the perfect time of the year to “start your engine”. Whether you are on the track or driving through town, it’s important to make sure your ignition system is working properly. Addressing problems that may lead to ignition system failure is essential for dependable vehicle operation, so you will not be left stranded at the starting lines or the parking lots.

Upfront Honesty

For many consumers, taking their vehicle in for service or repair can cause anxiety and lead them to postpone necessary maintenance and repairs. Neglecting routine service can cause more expensive repairs later. Our no-nonsense blog here provides tips and advice for motorists who need help finding and working with an auto service and repair shop. It is a must-see for everyone who owns or operates a vehicle.
