Having a reliable vehicle is important, especially during the winter months. If you are not sure when the last time you have the vehicle inspected, contact us. More than likely it is time to have it looked over. A proper bumper to bumper inspections is always needed, at least once a year. The way we can check everything from fluids to engine, to even the brakes. You will need your vehicle to be safe and reliable when you are on the road. Also, it is important to make sure the brake system works correctly. Brakes that are soft or spongy can increase the chance for them to go out completely. If you notice any issue, contact us for an appointment as soon as possible.

Winter means using the Lights more

You should also remember to check the lights of your vehicle. This includes fog lights, headlights high and low beam, taillights, and blinkers. In the winter, you will probably be using the lights more, because it gets dark later. You will also want to make sure they have the proper aim. If the lights are aimed incorrectly, you will have poor visibility ahead of you. You should be able to see the ditch and to your side, as well as head of you. This will help you prepare for anything that might pop out of the ditch or that is on the road.


The wipers should also be looked at, and replaced if needed. If they leave streaks or smudge marks, it will be time for a new set of wipers. Make sure they are the proper size that your vehicle requires. You will want and need your visibility to be the best it can, so the wipers should always be looked at. At the same time, check the washer fluid to ensure that there is enough. The fluid plus the wipers will help remove any grime from the windshield.
