driving

 

Getting ready for winter should also mean getting your car ready for winter. It may also require you to use to driving in the winter weather and temperatures as well. This is because you will have to adjust to driving in the snow, on the ice, and other poor road conditions. You will also want to make sure that your vehicle has had a proper inspection of all the parts and components. By following the recommended schedule, you can help to ensure that the parts are in the best condition for you this winter. If you are not sure how often this should be, we can advise you on a schedule for your vehicle.

Tire inspections

The tires are the only part of your vehicle that will make direct contact with the surface of the road. Because of this, you will want the tires in the best condition that they should be in. If you find that a tire is over inflated, it can mean it is more prone to pick up sharp objects that could be on the road. When a tire is under inflated, then it has a greater chance to blow out or get damaged. This can occur at any time, and also without any warning. So you will always want to check the air inflation of each tire frequently.

Driving and hearing odd noises

If you hear any odd noises from your vehicle, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. We can inspect it for any signs of an issue. When there is a high pitched noise, it could be a belt that might be starting to fail. You should also be aware of any grinding or clunking noises from the vehicle when you drive. Try to be aware of what you were doing when you heard the noise. Sometimes noises may only be present when you do a specific task like turning the steering wheel or applying the brakes.
