Checking in On Your Battery, Brakes, and Tires

The time to check on the status of your battery, brakes, and tires is not when you are in a situation that requires their immediate attention. For example, you don't want to be coming out of work during a -20 degree day, only to find your battery is out of juice. Ignoring basic car maintenance for the holidays is not just putting you at risk financially, it can be dangerous. Getting stranded in sub-freezing temperatures because your batter doesn't work isn't safe. Our service center can test your battery to make sure it is sound for the season.

Inspect your brake pads and rotors to ensure they have what they need to get through the winter months. It is also a good idea to make sure that you get winter tires for the proper traction on the winter roads. If you already have winter tires, it is a great idea to make sure they have the right amount of tread.
