Spring Break Check Up

Spring time is finally here. While jumping in the car and heading out on an adventure may sound like a great idea, don’t forget to make sure your car is road ready before you go. It will save you time and money and give you peace of mind.

Warranty Getaways

Did you know: When you buy a car from a dealership, it is not mandatory to have it serviced where purchased? Nope, it doesn’t void the warranty.

Let’s break that down a little more; just because you bought your car from a dealership, doesn’t mean they have to work on it for you if you don’t want them to. You can take your own vehicle to any repair shop you feel comfortable with, and have them do the maintenance – If later you decide to go back to the original dealership and have them do maintenance, you can do that too!

Please take it a little slower on wet roads.

Slow down. If more drivers followed this tip in the rain, accidents would dramatically decrease. Wet weather doesn’t receive the same attention as winter weather driving, but it should. Wet roads present similar dangers-less grip and longer stopping distance, for example.
Here are some tips for driving safely on wet roads:
- Make sure your tires offer the proper amount of tread.
- Drive with two hands. Always.
- Slow down before turning, and maintain a consistent speed throughout the turn.

Vehicle Inspections

Before you pack up the car to head home for the holidays, we would like to remind you to make sure your vehicle is ready for the journey. Conducting a thorough vehicle inspection will help you avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down miles away from home.
