This time of the year the days are getting shorter and the weather getting cooler. Most people start doing their pre-winter automobile maintenance, other than regular timely oil changes. If you drive in winter, you should have your winter tires ready for the oncoming season.
You should have your vehicle inspected before the snow starts to fall.
Don’t Hesitate – Prepare Your Car for Winter
Randomly we will find some surprises like a somewhat worn tire which looks just fine from the outside but it may hide a serious belt separation at the inside.
Like the BMW tire on the picture which was at the right front, unfortunately it was destroyed, because worn bushings and misalignment. The owner said he was driving it at 130 kph and felt OK. This could end up in a crash or cause a serious mishap while endangering others.
Tire safety and vehicle safety is your responsibility and is a serious matter, which should not be taken lightly. Always regularly check for excessive tire and suspension wear and correct it in a timely manner. It will save your tires, fuel and excessive wear and tear in the long term. There is no magic to having a safe vehicle, it should be second nature.
Whenever we do regular maintenance on any car, we do provide a visual comprehensive inspection on the car, with you as a car owner / driver safety in the forefront to get you to your destination.
