Disasters don't plan ahead. You can.

September is National Preparedness Month for our country. It's time to make sure your vehicle is ready to hit the road, whatever the emergency. Taking steps to stay safe in your vehicle is nothing new to any of us. Every time we get in our vehicle we set down our phones to buckle seat belts and adjust rear view mirrors, all of these actions are about safety.

Keeping Your Cool This Summer

Now that summer is in full swing, our vehicle's air conditioning system takes center stage. While some vehicle owner's are more diligent with maintenance, there are a lot of people that don't address their air conditioning system until it begins blowing hot air or fails to work at all. Giving your vehicle's air conditioning system attention now and then can help you keep your cool this summer, without missing a beat. We have all heard Benjamin Franklin's saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," and this wisdom definitely applies to your vehicle!

If your air conditioning system is not working properly, it is a good idea to bring it in and have an ASE Certified Technician take a look and perform some basic system checks. It is smart to think of air conditioning components as  "wear and tear" items. This is a system that requires occasional maintenance in order to keep you chilled on these hot summer days!

Let's face it, we have all smacked our tires on the curb. Hitting a curb generally happens more often in the winter, but can happen anytime. Just the other day, I watched a lady leaving the grocery store parking lot. She drove her brand new Subaru right into and over the curb in a moment of misjudgment of space. She sheepishly shrugged and sped away. I giggled. She did not even bother to stop and check her vehicle. It wasn't the first time the right hand turn has been tricky for a driver. You have probably done it, I may have done it once or twice. If we remember when we stop, we may do a quick visual check of the tire and as long as it still has air in it, what's the trouble? The scratched rim?
