As more and more drivers get back on the road to return to work, its time to start thinking about your car’s maintenance.
Has your car been sitting up for a few months? We all know to stay safe we have all been practicing social distancing, and working from home when we can. Your vehicle might have been sitting up for a while, so before you return to the road, here are some things to think about before getting back on the road.
Drivers are out of practice. Make sure you drive extra defensively as many drivers haven’t driven for a few months, so their awareness and reflexes might have compromised. Accidents happen every day, and if you are unlucky to be involved in an auto accident, Chapa Auto Craft is the premier auto body shop serving our Kyle, Tx, and Buda, Tx communities. While we’re always standing at the ready to help, let’s hope you don’t need us.
To keep yourself safe, think about bringing in your car that’s been sitting up for a while for the following services:
State inspections: That’s right, maybe during this time at home, your registration has lapped, and you’ve got an out of date sticker? Stop by to get all your paperwork squared away, and our state licensed technicians can make sure your car is roadworthy, if we find anything wrong, we’ll help you get it fixed. This ensures you, and all our drivers and their families are safe out there on our Texas roads.
Oil Changes: Car been sitting up a while? Let’s go ahead and get that oil changed. Oil not only has mile limitations, but it also has a shelf life in your car. Keeping your car or trucks engine properly lubricated, and your scheduled maintenance up to date is essential. One thing you can do to prevent future costly repairs is to keep a regularly scheduled maintenance routine for your car.
Tires: We all know Texas weather changes fast, you can wake up in the morning and need a jacket, and be ready for the swimming pool in the afternoon. This crazy weather takes a toll on our rubber tires. As tires age in this Texas weather, they start to breakdown. This can lead to your tire tread separation while driving, leaking air, low tire pressure, and blowouts. Let’s prevent all that by letter our certified technicians check to see if you need new tires.
Batteries: We’ve all been there, ready to head to work, or just got done shopping at Cabellas, and you go to start your car and “click-click-click” That battery doesn’t have the power to get your vehicle started. Another essential part of your car’s routine maintenance is your battery. We can test your battery and carry the industries best Interstate batteries on-site. We’ll make sure you get the right battery for your vehicle and install it while you wait.
