Auto Ready for Winter in Maryland

Tires, we talk about tread depth, 2/32 is state limits, 4/32 is most Tire manufactures recommendations for replacement. We start to really talk to you at 4/32. WHY? at 4/32 the tread design is about gone, the tire will no longer have all the benefits the manufacture designed into it. So what does that mean? You have a increased risk of hydroplaning in rain, much more likely to slide or get stuck in Ice & snow. We will check this for free!

Wipers, If you must park outside, lift them to the upright position, or put cardboard under them, stop by & let us show you & we will inspect them while you wait.

Washer fluid, keep it full & use full strength this time of year.

NOW lets talk about Transfer cases. If you have a 4 wheel drive or an all wheel drive vehicle then you have a transfer case that distributes the power to the front & rear axles. For example, if you have a rear wheel drive SUV, that power goes to the rear until you either, pull a lever, push a button or on some hi-end vehicles this happens automatically. Now realize that it is something you don’t think about - till you need it. So that unit should have the fluid drained, looked at for any particles & re-filled with the correct lubricant. The good news is this is not a real costly deal and can be done in about an hour & while we have it on the lift the Technician will actually put your vehicle in 4-wheel drive, or all wheel drive mode & confirm that it all is working properly for most vehicles this runs between $100-$200 in cost.

Better to know it’s Good, then to assume & find out it isn’t when you're Stuck.
