Traveling during the holiday season means spending a lot more time on the road. As you travel, you will want to make sure your vehicle is safe and reliable. When you drive, always be aware of anything out of the norm that your vehicle may have. This can range from odd noises, smells, or even how the vehicle handles. Whenever you notice something wrong with the vehicle, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. That way you can help prevent further issues in the long run. If you plan on traveling, you will want inspections done before you hit the road.
When you drive, always make sure to check the fluids and under the hood. If there are any odd noises or sounds, you will want to check to see what the problem is. Topping off the fluids of the vehicle will help keep things running efficiently as well. When a fluid level is low, and it happens often, make sure to contact us. We can check the vehicle for any signs of an issue or leak in the system. If you choose to ignore a problem or leak, it will become worse. You will want to be aware if the vehicle has a puddle under it after you have parked it for a length of time.
Check the headlights and taillights as well for your vehicle. Not only will this help you to see the road ahead of you, but it helps you to see other drivers. Other people can also see where you are. This is especially important for the blinkers of your vehicle. When the blinkers work properly, then others will know when and where you are planning on turning. If you notice that a blinker or light is not working properly, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. That way we can get the lights working correctly again.
