Back to School: Keeping Our Kids Safe

Back to School: Keeping Our Kids Safe

As school bells start to ring, it’s a sign of impending changes. No more sleeping in and the days aren’t quite so lazy. It can be difficult to get back into the swing of things, but the more prepared we are, the easier the transition. Certain times of the weekdays we will now find more kids on the roadways, either waiting for buses or walking home. It’s up to us to keep them safe! Carpooling: This can be great when it’s done right. If we are distracted by all the commotion going on in the backseat, it’s easy to take our eyes off the road and miss the kiddo stepping out to pick up his cell phone he just dropped.  Driving in a school zone: There’s a reason the speed limit is so much lower than during non-school-time hours. If you are driving slow, you’ll be able to slow down so much quicker. Keep your eyes open for those school zone speed limit signs as well as for children in and around the area ... read more

Preventative Maintenance: What It Is and Why It Matters

Preventative Maintenance: What It Is and Why It Matters

Your auto is a huge investment, and while it’s not likely that you will ever (usually!) earn any returns, you absolutely want to get the most out of it for as long as possible. Preventative maintenance will help you get the best performance along the way and has the potential to greatly increase your car’s longevity. Preventive maintenance is like getting a checkup at the doctor. It allows you or a professional to catch small problems before they turn into much bigger ones and puts you in the driver’s seat instead of forcing you into a corner. Proactive versus reactive is always a better position. Here’s a healthy preventive maintenance checklist:  Regular oil changes with the interval depending on many factors: how hard you drive, mileage, specific recommendations found in your owner’s manual, etc. Checking fluids: wiper, coolant, power steering, transmission. Belts, hoses, chains: look for wear and tear, cracks, holes, etc. Tires: regularl ... read more

Why Having Access to Master-Level Technicians Makes a Difference

 Why Having Access to Master-Level Technicians Makes a Difference

Not all masters practice Kung-fu. Did you know that the auto mechanics at Avid AutoWerx in Cincinnati are masters at Japanese auto care? Do you know that makes a difference to you? While this might be common sense to you, bear with us for the sake of ensuring you get the very best in service no matter where you go; it can be very helpful to know some of what to look for in a great auto mechanic/technician. When we start throwing the word ‘master’ around, then it becomes even more serious as well as more likely that you are honing in on the best for you and your vehicle.   When you take your Japanese vehicle into a generalist garage, it can be difficult for them to pinpoint the problem, because Japanese cars are not made like European or American.
