Pre-Purchase Inspections: What They Entail and Why They Matter

Today, we were driving around town and noticed we were following three newly-sold cars with the temporary tags. We were a little surprised, but after thinking about it, it makes sense why car purchases are ticking up lately.  For one, people who can’t afford car payments anymore due to layoffs are selling their used cars. For another, car dealerships are stuck with inventory they may not be able to move fast enough, so they are slashing prices on their new cars as well as their used car inventory. Lastly, some people have older cars that are less reliable, so they are taking advantage of all the cars entering the for-sale market. All these car sales bring up a valid point:  Pre-Purchase Inspections. What do they entail and why do they matter? Okay, if you are planning to buy a brand new car with a warranty, you don’t need to worry about a pre-purchase inspection. Or at least, you shouldn’t have to.

What is Proper Tire Maintenance?

During a down-economy, extending the life of your tires will save you money. The data supports that regularly scheduled auto repair and proper tire maintenance reduces the risk of major repairs.  Reliable transportation is essential right now for a lot of people. Without a doubt, we have all faced some changes in our work lives and home lives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Shelter-In-Place ordinances changed the driving habits for everyone.  Even though you may be driving less, your family fleet of vehicles still require maintenance. After all, motion is lotion, and a vehicle needs to be driven at least once a week if it is to remain dependable. When you start your car, for example, the fluids circulate, the gears shift, the wheels turn, and the battery charges. Just like your body, when your car remains stagnant, it can become sluggish the longer it sits. But what exactly is “proper tire maintenance”? Proper tire maintenance consists of the correct ... read more

How Preventive Maintenance Can Save You Money And Extend The Life Of Your Car

How Preventive Maintenance Can Save You Money And Extend The Life Of Your Car

Are you planning to keep your vehicle longer than initially expected, and want to save money over the life of your car? If so, then now is the time to invest in regular preventive maintenance on your vehicle. It is often said that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. If you like your vehicle and intend to drive it for years to come, this is a flawed idea for many reasons. Simply put, fixing a broken car is much more expensive than maintaining a running one. Reliable transportation is essential during this COVID-19 outbreak, and the last thing anyone needs is to get stranded on the side of the road. If you now realize that you may not buy that new car you planned on because of the economic downturn, then preventive maintenance is even more critical. Preventive maintenance is a pre-planned step that will reduce the costs of repairs and extend the life of your car. Vehicles are built today with tight tolerances, which means that the fluids you run in them need to stay clean. Oth ... read more

Why Being a Green Shop Matters!

Why Being a Green Shop Matters!

We don’t often think of the environmental consequences of the shops to whom we give our business. Finding an automotive shop that cares just as much about the environment as you do means that they will do the worrying for you. We all want clean air to breathe and freshwater to drink from, finding a green repair shop near you will help the environment for years to come. Many auto repair shops use solvent-based fluids and cleaners, which are harmful to both employees as well as the environment. There are other options out there, and a green-mechanic is in the know. Using water-based liquids and cleaners are risk-free and is not corrosive or damaging to your car. A green shop can employ the resources to recycle products like antifreeze and refrigerant gasses without harming the environment. The entire facility is environmentally sensitive. They also purchase spray products over aerosols whenever possible. Reconditioned car parts are an excellent choice when thinking of environmen ... read more

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
