That’s right. Three out of four vehicles on the road right now have some need for service. That car in front of you…bad brakes. In the right lane next to you…it pulls to the left. That SUV behind you has bad wipers that don’t clear the windshield. Good thing it’s not raining.
Whether it is a part beginning to fail, or a lack of maintenance, these cars are operating on the very edge. This means that in an emergency, YOUR car will make the difference between safe passage, or being in an accident not of your making.
You jump in your car to do a quick errand, and you notice a steady vibration through the steering wheel. You’re sure you didn’t hit any potholes recently, and it sure wasn’t vibrating earlier today…
It could be a broken belt in your tire! Tires are made up of layers of material, many times made from different materials to give them particular characteristics. When a belt breaks, it changes the shape of the tire and weakens the area under the tread. In some cases, the tire might look completely normal!
We value and appreciate taking care of your vehicle all year long, however the changes in seasons can create such a different driving environment that it becomes necessary to inspect and be certain your car is ready for whatever the weather throws at you! Here’s just a few items that are of concern whenever the weather changes…
Hitting a pothole with your car can do a real number on tires, wheels, steering, suspension, and alignment.
Potholes occur when water permeates the pavement – usually through a crack – and softens the soil beneath it, creating a depression in the surface of the street. Many potholes appear during winter and spring months because of freeze-thaw cycles, which accelerate the process. Potholes can also be prevalent in areas with excessive rainfall and flooding.
