Living in a state with four distinct seasons, most of us grow up knowing the importance of driving safely in the snow. Driving slowly and keeping plenty of space when the roads are slick doesn’t do you much good, though, if your vehicle isn’t properly maintained.
This is especially true of your tires. As the point where your car makes contact with the road, your tires are the source of all your car’s traction. By ensuring your tires are properly maintained and replaced when necessary at our New Jersey Toyota tire center, you can help ensure that you have the traction you need to get moving and the grip you need to stop on slick roads so that your cautious driving isn’t all for nothing.
What about the end of the season, though, when the weather starts to transition and get warmer?
Sliding Smoothly Into Spring With Our New Jersey Toyota Service Center
With warmer weather on the horizon, you might think that things are easier for your vehicle. The truth is, though, that it’s still winter and it’s still important to give your vehicle some extra attention if you want to steer clear of trouble.
Even with warmer days happening, the weather still tends to alternate between mild and cold–especially with cold nights. This back and forth between cold and warm can be particularly stressful on some of your car’s components, even when you’re not driving. This includes rubber belts and hoses, which expand and contract as the ambient temperature changes.
We suggest having your rubber components double checked at our New Jersey Toyota service center to identify any worn spots or cracks that could be made worse by the changing weather. By changing them now, you can prevent small issues from becoming bigger repairs as the weather continues to change.
