Carpool Season


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?


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.

Pre-Trip Check Up

Road Trip

A pre-trip vehicle check can determine how road-ready your vehicle is so you can take steps to have any problems fixed before heading out for vacation.

Before you hit the road, 60 Minute Tune recommends a vehicle check to help avoid the inconvenience, potential safety hazards and unplanned expense of breaking down miles away from home.
