It is Christmas time for many of us, and for all of us in the Triangle it is the Holiday Season! It is the perfect time as we put a close on 2013 to do your traditional yearly vehicle walk around
Doing a yearly walk around this time of year just makes sense as we head into the coldest and often the wettest period in Central Carolina. We will have a nice day this week so, go outside and pop your hood. It probably has been awhile. Look for leaks. Check hoses and belts. How are your battery cables and posts? In fact, how old is your battery? If it is older than three years of age,Premier 1 Automotive can test it for you FOR FREE. When did you last replace your air filter? How are your tires? How about replacing your wipers?
If you have a garage, you have a garage floor; check it for leaks. Oil, antifreeze, and transmission fluid could be on the ground. Just look for fresh spots.
Now go around the car and pop the trunk. Lift the floor section and check your spare tire. If it is soft or flat (you will be surprised); we can refill it with air.
Now for the team stuff, grab a partner or better yet, one of the kids. Check your turn signals, brake lights and running lights. If you own an SUV or pickup, odds are good one of your running lights are burnt out. Check headlights and fog lamps as well. While in the car, run your air conditioning for a few minutes. Yes, we know it is almost winter. Running it a couple of times in the “off” season will keep it in good shape.
By doing this annual checkup once a month, the process will prevent surprises and keep all of your accessories and your vehicle in great shape.
