Did You Know Maintenance Can Help You Avoid a Wreck?

You know that maintenance and properly servicing your Asian vehicle keeps the car running properly. But did you also realize that maintenance can help you to avoid being in an accident? Here’s what T&T Automotive Service wants you to know.

Check Your Brakes

Without brakes, you have big issues and you may end up in a whopper of a wreck. If you’re noticing anything unusual in how your brakes are working, make sure that you don’t ignore the problem. Get your brakes inspected right away and get the problem corrected.

Fix Steering Problems

Again, steering trouble is like brake issues. If you can’t control the car in order to avoid an accident, that’s a huge problem. Loose steering or steering that pulls against what you’re doing is definitely something that needs to be checked out.

Check Your Lights

Your lights do two big jobs, really. First, they help you to see what’s going on around you. That helps you to avoid obstacles and to drive safely. But the second big job your lights have is to make sure that other drivers and pedestrians can see you and know what you’re doing. Don’t forget to check turn signal indicators and other lights, too, and not just headlights.

Make Sure Your Tires and Wheels Are Okay

Everything rides on your tires and wheels, literally. When there are issues with your wheels or tires, that’s going to affect all sorts of things from your ability to steer properly to safe braking. And the last thing you need is to actually lose a wheel off the car when you’re driving. If you hear or feel anything that doesn’t seem right, get it checked out.

Double Check that Visibility Is Okay

Finally, make sure that you’re able to see out of your car. This can involve a few different maintenance issues, really. For starters, top up your windshield wiper fluid and make sure that your wipers themselves are in good working order. Next, especially in the colder months, make sure that your defrosters are working properly. And finally, remove any items you’re carrying around that block visibility.
