4 important automotive tips for February.

Dignity Repairs Blog Promo

Ashton Deroy writes, Hey Toronto Readers,

This is Ashton Deroy back on the Dignity Repairs blog for February. Here are my four Winter Maintenance tips for February. I want to try and do a lot more blogging on this space this year.

Wiper Blades – You need your vision on these icy roads. Being blind by slush is bad for you and the other drivers around you. If your wiper blades are not effective we can switch them out for you and ensure your vision is not compromised on the road. Again driving in Toronto is dangerous enough without compromising your vision.

Fix your brakes – Yes there is a lot of salt on the roads now in Toronto. However if you are on a low maintained road when you least expect it your brakes can stop working. Avoid this issue at all costs. Ask about getting your brakes checked at Dignity Service garage.

Check your battery – Being stranded in the winter time in this cold weather is a nightmare. Make sure you go to our automotive garage and have your battery checked. To make sure you are not stranded with somewhere to be in the winter time. This can save you trouble on a cold night.

Alignment – Uneven tire wear can leave your car with a bad alignment. Have your tires checked to ensure a smooth drive.

My Aunt teaches me to change a tire

This situation came up for me Saturday 27th of May. My aunt got into her parking lot and realized her car tire was flat. Why was this tire flat? She drove over a nail somehow. 

How to change a tire? 

  1. Find a safe flat location, thankfully we were in my aunt’s garage
  2. Turn on your hazard lights 
  3. Apply parking brake 
  4. Apply wheel wedges 
  5. Remove wheel hub cap and wheel covers. 
  6. Loosen the lug nuts, Lefty loosey! 
  7. Place jack under the vehicle, in our case, it was a Toyota 
  8. Unscrew lug nuts 
  9. remove the flat tire 
  10. Mount on the spare tire with lug nut bolts 
  11. Tighten the lug nuts
  12. Lower the vehicle and tighten again 
  13. Lower the vehicle completely
  14. Replace hubcap 
  15. Store all of your equipment 
  16. Check pressure in your tire 
  17. Take flat tire to Dignity auto repairs! 

For your flat tire needs go to Dignity Repairs.

  • Honda Civic – AKA good old dependable. The most popular reason for getting a Honda is because this care can be depended on from Toronto, to Brighton. The Honda is a dependable car. Its other benefits include, fuel economy, the gear shift and great handling ability. This vehicle appeals to a wide demographic of Canadians. 
  • Hyundai Elantra – Inexpensive, Good handling and a top safety rating. This is truly the appealing vehicle for families and young professionals.

3 Easy beginner cars to drive

3 Good beginner cars.png

Hello and welcome to Dignity Repairs official blog. when you are first beginning to drive you do not want the most complicated car to start driving. High prices, easy handling and insurance costs are all things you need to consider in getting your first car. The three cars below are great recommendations for beginner cars to drive:

Hyundai I10

Hyundai

This car is not the priciest car. Plus with the easy handling it makes it a great first car for a young person under 20. Plus can you really see a younger person drag racing this car? This car screams safety and that is all.

Honda Civic

This car is durable, solid and safe. If well maintained it can go over 250,000 miles with out a problem. It is not a hassle to fix and in a silver colour it is not going to be expensive to get insurance for. Not to mention Honda’s have a long standing reputation for saving money on gas.

 

1998-2004 Toyota Tacoma

This truck is recommended for a first time driver because it is a rugged tough truck with easy handling. Plus the truck has a solid reputation for handling off road.

The only problem with this vehicle is it is a bit of a gas guzzler.
