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.

3 Easy beginner cars to drive

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.

The Basics Behind Brake Rotor Replacement Services at Dignity Auto Repairs & Service

Your brake system’s rotors, in conjunction with the brake pads, help bring your vehicle to a complete stop. Commonly made of cast iron, rotors are discs that mount to the wheel hub. When you press the brake pedal, the brake pads compress against the rotors and slow your wheels. Rotor design may vary from vehicle to vehicle and from brake system to brake system. Variations in design help dissipate the heat created between the brake pads and the rotors when you slow your vehicle.

Disc brake systems can account for heat dissipation in two ways: either the rotors will have a ventilated design, or the brake pads will contain a slot on the surface. These vents and slots provide passages so air circulation can effectively cool the rotor. Proper heat dissipation is extremely important for prolonging the life of your rotors. Drivers are encouraged to watch their brake rotors and seek rotor repairs or rotor replacements when necessary.

Why Should You Have Brake Rotor Replacement Services Performed at Dignity Auto Repairs & Service ?

Brake pads and rotors work together to stop your vehicle, and share similar wear patterns. As brake pads compress against the rotor to stop the vehicle. the friction required to slow your wheels creates a large amount of heat that, if not properly dissipated, can wear down your brake pads and rotors.

A vibrating brake pedal is one indication that your rotors are damaged and need to be replaced. When a rotor is removed from the brake assembly, the rotor will be inspected for cracks and other damage incurred during routine operation. Periodic inspections of rotors will prolong rotor repairs and replacements while ensuring your brake system continues operating as expected.

Seeking brake rotor replacements within the service intervals indicated by your owner’s manual, or as wear and tear dictates, is an important part of brake maintenance. If you are wondering if a rotor replacement is right for your vehicle, please consult with a member of our service staff today.
