Floods can be harmful

Flood

Record rainfalls have hit parts of the country and flooding has taken its toll on vehicles. Thousands of cars, trucks, and SUVs have been damaged by floods and 60 Minute Tune recommends that car owners in those areas check their vehicles for signs of water intrusion or contamination.

Water damage from a flood can unknowingly cause problems that will be costly to fix down the road. Flood vehicles can also be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. We have included the following suggestions to check out the health of your vehicle.

Holiday Travel, are you ready?

Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. If maintenance is not up to date, have your car and tires inspected before you take a long drive.

Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads during the most popular times of the year. If possible, consider leaving earlier or later to avoid heavy traffic.

Keep anything of value in the trunk or covered storage area.

If you’re traveling with children, remind them not to talk to strangers. Go with them on bathroom breaks and give them whistles to be used only if the family gets separated.

Carpool Season

Carpool

With school carpool season ramping up, it's important to remember some safety tips.

School carpool season is upon us and 60 Minute Tune would like to remind drivers to make sure their vehicles are kid-safe and road ready with a five-point checklist:

What does the exclamation sign on your dash mean?

tpms

Newer model vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to warn drivers that at least one of their tires is underinflated. The dashboard light looks like an exclamation point inside of a horseshoe and, if illuminated, should be addressed immediately.

When the TPMS light goes on, it should not be ignored. Driving on underinflated tires can lead to an accident or cause damage to your vehicle. Check your tire pressure monthly including your spare as part of a proactive maintenance plan.
