Five Things Every Young Driver Should Know About Their Vehicle

Five Things Every Young Driver Should Know About Their Vehicle

Most of us like to jump in our cars and go without thinking much about anything other than where we are headed. Especially when we are young and we can’t wait to get to a party, a friend’s house, or some other fun event. It is, however, important that everyone holds a bit of knowledge about the powerful vehicle under the control of our foot on the pedal, hand on the shifter, mitts on the steering wheel.  Know your car: Make sure someone teaches you about your specific car. From lights to brakes to everything in between, set it all up the ways that will keep you safe before ever pulling away from the curb. Understand all of your lights, set all mirrors to provide you with the least blind spots, and set your seat to provide you with comfort but also with the best ability to properly handle your steering wheel.  Owner's manual: Contrary to popular belief, your owner’s manual isn’t just there to take up room in your glove box or to satisfy the automa ... read more

Dog Days Of Summer: How To Best Protect Your Pooch In Your Car

Dog Days Of Summer: How To Best Protect Your Pooch In Your Car

Many of us love to travel with our dogs. In fact, many of us don’t even like to leave our best friend behind when we go to the grocery store. We love our pooches, but that doesn’t mean it’s always best for us to bring them with us wherever and whenever we go out. It’s important to realize that our vehicle’s interior heats up very fast. When it’s only 70 degrees outside, a car interior can climb to 104 in a half an hour and up to 113 within an hour. The penalties for leaving a pet in your car ranges from a $50 fine up to a felony. Never leave your pet alone in your vehicle. There are other ways to protect your pooch when traveling or running errands that won’t leave your pet behind waiting for you in the car. It’s not a law in New York to restrain your dog in the backseat, but there are plenty of discussions encouraging lawmakers to take that stance. Some states already have those laws in place. While we don’t here, it is the safes ... read more

How to Make Sure Your Car Is Prepared For The Hot Weather

Now that winter is long gone and spring showers are gone you can finally get ready for summer months. You might be ready for summer after you have stocked up on sunscreen, watermelon, and a new swimsuit. Think again! Just like you prepare your car for winter weather you also need to prepare your car for the hot blistering weather. Keep these tips in mind during all of our upcoming heat waves. The most important thing you want in the hot weather is a fully functioning air conditioning system in your car. To check this simply turn your car on and the AC, you obviously want cold air to be blowing out. If its just air blowing out then most likely something small needs to be replaced like an air filter.  Not only do you want to stay nice and cool during the hot weather but so does your car. Check your car's radiator to make sure it has enough coolant. If you glance at your dashboard and see the temperature gauge is too high this could be an indicator that there is a leak.
