January 23, 2014|
In combination with this increased sophistication has come greater reliability. Modern cars don’t break down half as much as they used to, service intervals have increased and most manufacturers now offer a comprehensive warranty.
This is all good news, but it does not mean that we should adopt a carefree attitude to our cars. Basic, routine maintenance can help to make your car run more efficiency and keep it trouble-free. This basic maintenance is often called “preventative m...

January 21, 2014|
Maintaining the paint on a car or truck is usually low on the to do list as the winter days get shorter and nights colder. The fact is, that thin layer of paint is the only thing protecting the materials underneath. Winter weather can harm the components of the paint that keep it flexible and shining.
