Tuesday Tip

Here is our Tuesday Tip.  Do you drive with your radio on all of the time?  Most of us do.  The problem with that is that the music or talk that is playing can sometimes hide noises that your vehicle is making, that may be a hint that something is not quite right.  We suggest turning off your radio and driving for a while.  Listen to your vehicle..does the exhaust sound normal, or is it louder than it used to be?  Is there a squeal when you step on the brakes?  Do you hear any noises that you haven’t noticed in a while?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, please book an appointment with us so that we can do an inspection and make sure that everything is alright, or find a problem.  It’s easy to miss these things if you can’t hear them.

Graduation Time

It’s Graduation Time!!  For some of you that means buying your graduate a new (to them) vehicle.  Our recommendation before you give them you amazing gift, is to have it inspected.  We always recommend pre-buyer’s inspections to our customers.  Why?  First you will know if the vehicle is how it appears..is it safe?  Does it need extensive repairs?  The answers to these questions can give you the knowledge to either negotiate the price or walk away from the vehicle.

Alignment

Customers are always asking:  How can I tell if I need an Alignment?  Some of the questions we ask them are:  Is your steering wheel off center?  Are you tires wearing unevenly?  By any chance have you hit a curb a little to hard?  If you answer yes to any of those questions it is probably a good time to get an alignment done.

Remember your pets and children

With this Hot weather headed our way..Remember your pets and children and do not leave them in your vehicle.  It is amazing how fast the inside of a car can get.  You might just need to dash inside the store for a sec..but things can happen and you might not get out was quickly as you had planned.  The heartbreak of injuring a child or a pet, just isn’t worth it.  So please, either leave them at home, or bring them inside with you, it’s just not worth the consequences.

A Hot One

It’s supposed to be a HOT ONE this weekend and coming week.  Nothing is worse than being in a hot car and turning on the air conditioning and getting blasted with not cold, but hot or warm air.  Before this heat wave gets here turn on you A/C and make sure it works.  If you check it now and it doesn’t work you still will have time to bring it to us so that we can get in blowing nice cool air again.
