The vehicle you drive should always be well maintained. Following the regular maintenance schedule will help your vehicle be safe and reliable when you will need to drive it during the winter months. With the potential for bad road conditions to occur, you will always want to make sure your vehicle is in the best condition possible. If you are not sure how often the vehicle should be inspected or maintained, contact us. We can set the vehicle up on a schedule and alert you for when it should have certain tasks done. This can include oil changes, tire rotations or alignments, brake inspections, or just a bumper to bumper inspection.
Tires in the winter can lose air pressure quickly. This is because sometimes there is a bead leak from the tires. Also, low air pressure can be caused by the valve stem or the rims of the tires as well. It is recommended that you bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the tire and rim to figure out where the issue might be. Make sure that before you drive the tires are at the right air pressure. Driving on tires that have too much or too little can cause issues. It can also do damage to the rims of the tire if the air pressure is too low.
When you check the oil of the vehicle, also make sure that you check the other fluids. This will help ensure that everything under the hood is in the most efficient condition. If oil or another fluid is always needing to be replaced, contact us. There could be a leak in one of the hoses. If a fluid is going low often, you will want to have it fixed. Running the car without any can do significant damage.
