The proper care and maintenance for your vehicle is important. If you are not sure how often the vehicle should be checked, you can contact us. We can advise you on the maintenance schedule that is best for your vehicle. You can also check the owner’s manual of the vehicle to see when certain parts and components should be maintained. If you notice any issues between visits, make sure to contact us. We will be able to schedule an appointment so we can inspect it.
During the winter, proper maintenance should include checking the tires regularly. In the winter, the tires can lose air. This can be as much as one pound per square inch for each ten degree decrease. When you check the air pressure, make sure that the vehicle has sat for some time. Doing so will help to prevent a false reading of the air pressure. If a tire is losing air on a constant basis, make sure that you bring it in. There could be an issue with the valve stem or tire itself. When the air is being lost from the tires, it will get worse with time. It is always best to have any issue looked at as soon as possible.
You will also want to make sure that the lights of the vehicle are working properly. If the light is not, it can cause visibility issues for you, as well as those around you. Other people and other drivers will not be able to see your vehicle as you drive. You will want to also check the blinkers for the vehicle to ensure they work as well. If they do not, then others will not know what direction you are turning. This can cause an accident because drivers may try to pass you on one side or the other. If the lights do not work, make sure to schedule an appointment with us.
