9 Automotive Checks for Spring in the Triangle

Winter aside, here comes spring and before we know it we are on the road again. Gas prices are fairly stable and the economy is growing. Premier One Automotive anticipates a growth in putting some miles on the family vehicle and we will see an increase in service appointments across the Triangle and Apex! Indeed, the months for planning vacations and trips are coming up very soon. Summer is on the horizon as well. It is the soon to be warm in the Triangle! Let’s get ready for it before it gets too busy. Preparation is everything.  

There is nothing more important than servicing the vehicles in town that are driven every single day. Work, church, school, and practices are just a few of the destinations we all do daily. A dependable, working, and functional ride is important. Heading out for the weekend and breaking down is simply unacceptable.

Bring every vehicle to us if it is beyond the manufacturer’s bumper to bumper warranty, and we will get you rolling as quickly as possible. We have specials on synthetic oil changes, rotations and more. We are just minutes from anywhere in Western Wake County and just down the street from the Apex City Hall. We also have ASE Certified Techs on staff.

At Premier 1 Automotive we check nine areas of maintenance to ensure everyone has the safest ride in the Triangle:

  • Tires
  • Shocks/ struts
  • Filters
  • Coolant and fluids
  • Battery and electronics
  • Thermostat
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Wipers

Schedule a visit to Premier One Automotive and enjoy the spring to warmer weather with complete confidence.  Call us today at 919 387 6800.

8 Important Points for Holiday and Winter Driving in the Triangle

Here comes the Holiday Season across North Carolina and the Triangle region! The weather might be frightful up north and in the Midwest, but we are very lucky here in the Tar Heel State and the Peak of Good Living in Apex. Winter is usually a crisp and cool season. Many of our local population grew up colder climates like New York, Michigan and Wisconsin. It might be why they moved; in our area, any amount of snow, sleet, freezing rain, wind, and cold can make streets and travel very challenging.

The Triangle averages only a few inches of snow a year. Yet, winter can bring surprises.  As we head to Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, across In Morrisville, Apex, Cary, or Holly Springs, the days can be filled with surprises, warm one day and below freezing the next; and any wet and frozen precipitation can bring its surprises.  

Driving in wet weather, ice storms and snow means everyone needs to be prepared. Triangle ice storms often make the national news. It is important to remember that ice means always being safe and ready.

Premier One Automotive offers eight important points to consider as the Triangle drives toward spring and the warmer weather:

  • Check your anti-freeze: Look for clean and bright colors (green or red). Change it if needed. 
  • Car battery: Remember car batteries fail at the wrong time. Have it tested. 
  • Be prepared for breakdowns: Keep an energy bar, bottled water, and a flashlight with fresh batteries somewhere in the car. Battery cables, flares, blankets and a first aid kit should also be in the car. 
  • Check the spare: Make sure the spare has air, and note that over 30% of vehicles do not even have a spare. Is there one in the trunk or under the tailgate? Many new vehicles have only an air inflator. Make sure to have a plan in flat tire situations. 
  • Clean the glass: Clean windows means better visibility. Rain-X the outside of the windows. It makes a difference on a bad weather day. Replace the wipers. 
  • Check the tires: Tires wear and age. Look for wear and make sure they are properly inflated. 
  • Check headlights: Any exterior lighting needs to have a monthly check. Turn signals, brake lights and parking light are on that list. 
  • Oil change: Change the oil, filter, and air filter; this is the most important point on the list.

These eight areas of focus will give Apex and Triangle vehicles the safest edge this winter. Call us today and make that appointment for winter service. Remember, it could snow any day!

Premier One Automotive can be reached at 919 387 6800.

Have a great and safe Thanksgiving!
