It is a time to check the wheels alignment if your vehicle is pulling to the side or when your steering wheel vibrates or it is off center when driving straight. Good tires and wheels alignment ensures a safer and comfortable ride experience.
Preventive maintenance may seem like an unnecessary car expense, but it often involves matters that you’ll have to take care of sooner or later, and paying for them sooner will often be a less expensive undertaking. Most important is the fact that preventive maintenance will help keep you and others safe. And if you don’t keep up with your car’s preventive maintenance, you may find yourself stuck or in need of repair when you can least afford it.
Following the scheduled maintenance recommendations in your owner’s manual, checking fluid levels regularly and changing the fluids and filters periodically can minimize the risks of breakdowns and prolong the life of you vehicle.
The computer in your vehicle is in constant contact with all of the sensors and most of the electronic devices in your vehicle. Anytime the computer detects an abnormal sensor reading, or inoperative sensor, it will log the error code and turn on your check engine light.
When your check engine light turns on, your car is trying to communicate in the only way that it can. At the most basic level, the check engine light indicates that some sensor, somewhere in your engine, exhaust, or transmission, has provided unexpected data to the computer. That could indicate a problem with the system the sensor is responsible for monitoring, a bad sensor, or even a wiring issue. In some cases, a check engine light may turn on and then eventually turn itself off with no outside intervention. That doesn’t mean the problem has gone away, or that there was no problem in the first place. In fact, information about the problem is usually still available via special auto diagnostic equipment even after the light turns itself off.
Spending few hundred dollars annually on maintenance and repairs may sound like a lot, but it’s nothing compared to the added expense of buying a new car, especially if your current car is paid off. In fact, by some estimates, every five years you drive your car after paying it off saves you the monetary equivalent of a new car.

The tires are the only thing between the vehicle and the road. When they are properly inflated and in good condition, the handling, stability and safety of the vehicle will be maximized. Conversely, when the tires are under inflated, worn out or damaged, all of the safety systems on the vehicle cannot overcome the loss of control that comes with a blow-out or hydroplaning situation.
Air pressure in a tire is like oil in an engine; when it is low, the resulting internal damage is unseen until it is too late. Tires naturally lose 1-2 psi per month, so ongoing neglect will eventually result in a tire that cannot support the weight of the vehicle and the occupants. When this happens, the resulting blow-out can result in the loss of control and an accident. Failing to inspect and service you tires often results in damaging not only tires but other vehicle suspension and drivetrain components. It also develops irregular treadwear patterns that cause vibrations and lost of vehicle steering control. The same can be said for alignments. When the vehicle is not properly aligned, the tires will wear out faster which leads to increased operating costs.
