Can you believe it’s December already? And, Brrrrrrr. It’s off to a chilly start. Remember to allow yourself some extra time to warm up your vehicle and make sure everything starts. It’s also a good idea to stay with your vehicle unless you have remote start and lock. APD says to be diligent, very often a morning car theft is the result of opportunity.
Three other items to be aware of in the cold are 1) Tire pressure – a low tire can be un-drivable after a cold drop. 2) Coolant system / Heater check 3) Battery Check – if you are noticing a lull in turn-over during ignition, you should have your battery checked. It may just need more charge. Short trips barely give the alternator time to recoup the power. And cold starts can leave you without enough amps to get going.
Stay tuned for our holiday hours and if you are planning on traveling this Christmas. Schedule your trip check early so that we can get you on the schedule.
Happy Holidays from our Family to Yours,
