-1st. Start with a general inspection, with a reliable certified garage and a mechanic
you can trust.
Checking your car’s oil and other important fluids, checking the filters, belts, hoses, wipers and lights.
-Check alignment and suspension
Driving over potholes can damage your car’s alignment and suspension, specially from winter to
beginning of spring. Just potholes everywhere.
Have a technician check the pads and rotors to ensure there are no safety issues.
Neglecting them can lead to a costlier repair down the line.
-Summer and all-season tires
Unfortunately, using snow tires year round isn’t recommended. In the long run, it will cost more money than changing them out and could compromise your vehicle’s performance on the road.
Consumer Reports say their tests show winter tires are potentially worse at stopping on dry and wet summer roads.
Whichever tires you choose, they need to be kept at the correct tire pressure for your vehicle.
