Everyone has different habits when it comes to washing their car. Many people see it as a purely cosmetic thing, so as long as their car is running and driving right they don’t see a point in washing it all that often. In actuality, washing your car is also an important aspect of maintenance and making a car last. Brant Jones Auto & Towing in Springfield has some car washing tips for you, to keep your car in shape for years to come.
No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, old or new, it probably has doors. Those doors are heavy, and they see a lot of use. Naturally, from time to time, parts wear out. If your door doesn’t function as well as it should, here’s why, courtesy of Brant Jones Auto & Towing in Springfield.
Wheel bearings aren’t a part of maintenance that you regularly think about. At Brant Jones Auto & Towing in Springfield, we know there are a lot of vehicles on the road with failing wheel bearings, with drivers that aren’t even aware there’s a problem. Bearings fail slowly, typically, so it’s entirely possible that your car is making excessive road noise, underperforming, wearing out your tires, and decreasing your ride quality, without you even knowing it. Since they wear out slowly, most of the time you don’t notice how bad a bearing has deteriorated until it’s been replaced, and you’re reminded of the way your car, truck, or SUV is supposed to perform.
Your tires are the only part of your vehicle that ever come in contact with the road (hopefully.) As a result, they also bear the brunt of every pothole and loose nail in the road, not to mention the wear and tear of supporting a moving vehicle that weighs over a ton. At Brant Jones Auto & Towing in Springfield, we offer solutions to your tire problems that avoid replacing them if possible, getting you the most value out of your tires. Why throw an otherwise good tire out, if all it needs is a simple repair?
