Don’t Forget To Winterize Your Vehicle

By Adobe Photo Stock   Get Your Car Ready for Winter: 5 Tips from the Pros It's that time of year again! Time to trade in your sandals for boots, your ice cream for hot chocolate, and your convertible for a sled. But before you fully embrace all things winter, there's one more thing you need to do: winterize your car. Here are five tips from the pros to get your vehicle ready for the cold weather ahead. How The Pros Prepare Their Vehicles For Winter 1. Check Your Tires  One of the most important things you can do to winterize your car is to ensure your tires are in good condition.

3 Ways To Prepare Your Vehicle For Rain Conditions

It's all too easy to overlook windshield wipers and tires. As we enter into the rainy season, here are three ways you can prepare your vehicle (and yourself) for wet weather conditions.    1. Check your windshield wipers and washer fluid levels Before the rain begins, take a minute to check that your windshield wipers are in good condition. Worn-out or damaged wipers won't be able to wipe away water as effectively, which can lead to decreased visibility while driving.

There's nothing worse than having grimy water streaking down your windshield when trying to see where you're going!   2.

Why Fluid Exchange And Preventative Maintenance are Essential

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio   What is "Preventative Maintenance"? Preventative maintenance is defined as regularly scheduled inspections, tests, servicing, and replacements of auto parts and systems. Its purpose is to help avoid expensive repairs or replacements down the road. Many carmakers release recommendations on when you should replace certain parts.   Auto repair shops may offer service packages at a discount. Some preventative maintenance tasks you can do yourself, such as checking your tire pressure and oil level, but others will require the help of a professional mechanic.   While it may seem like an unnecessary expense upfront, preventative maintenance can save you time and money in the long run by keeping your car running smoothly.   What is a "fluid exchange"? Auto repair shops often talk about performing a "fluid exchange" as part of routine maintenance. But what exactly is a fluid exchange?   In short, it ... read more

However, it is safe to say that we have all experienced a vehicle breakdown as well, haha! While we might not add that to the list of life's guarantees, you want to be on top of things to prevent them or reduce them as much as possible.   There is no way to magically make them disappear, but there are certain ways you can dramatically reduce the likelihood of a vehicle breakdown. It comes down to "proper planning prevents poor performance" (does anyone else hear Dad's voice in the back of their head, haha?) the more your prepare, the better off you ... read more
