Summer time automotive maintenance tips.png

Hey Toronto, it is Ashton Deroy again writing for the Dignity Repairs blog. If you haven’t already, you need to be asking yourself. What should I look at in my transportation as we begin to turn from winter to spring and summer. 

Well here is some things you might be over looking: 

  1. Tire pressure changes – A warn down or misaligned tire can be extremely dangerous. To check your tire pressure use what is referred to as a penny trick on your tires. Heavily worn tread can cause dangerous driving condition. If you can see any part of the picture of the penny.You should replace your tires. 
  2. Change your oil – Every 7,500 miles your oil needs to be changed. Usually this time comes around the time of the change in seasons. 
  3. Check fluid levels – If the car happens to be your summer car and it has been in storage all winter. You should check transmission, power steering and differential.

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.

Nothing keeps the paint of your car looking good like a quality wax to protect the coating. It is recommended to have the waxing applied every six months to make sure your car is staying as good looking as possible.
