3 Things To Check To Prepare Your Car For The Holidays

No Comments

As the holidays approach, you might be thinking about the gifts you’re planning on getting for your family. The last thing on your mind might be whether or not if your car is in good condition to last through the holidays and beyond. That’s why it’s important to check as soon as possible before you end up dealing with a problem that you didn’t catch in time. 

Harris Garage, your local auto shop in Hayes, VA would like to remind you that now is always a good time to make sure that your vehicle is in good shape. We’ll be taking a look at three things you need to check out to ensure everything is in working order. If you happen to catch an issue that can be fixed, our ASE Certified Mechanics will repair it in the same day. 

If it’s been awhile since you’ve checked your vehicle for just a routine inspection, here are three things that you need to inspect for yourself before you start all that running around during the holidays:

1. Tires

Your tires have been through a hot summer and are about to deal with some cold weather. Either way, cracks can occur and lead to more air loss in your tires. With a loss of air and damage done to your tires, your fuel economy will suffer in the process.

Harris Garage is your tire repair service near Williamsburg, VA and will make sure that your tires will either be replaced or rotated. Regardless, you deserve tires that will perform very well on the roads. Plus, you want to keep them well inflated between 32 to 35 PSI. 

2. Heating System

You might be using your heater more often than not this winter. Now would be a good time to make sure that it’s blowing warm air as it should be. If it’s not (even when fully blasted and at the warmest temperature), then you have a problem that can be fixed as soon as possible. 

Harris Garage will make sure that your car will be repaired with high-quality parts that are backed by a 3-year / 36,000 mile nationwide warranty. While your vehicle is being repaired, you can use one of our free pre-inspected loaner cars so you can run errands or go to work.

Alternatively, we can give you a free ride from the shop to your work or home (and pick you up when you are ready). Either way, we provide you with anything you might need to get from point A to point B while your car is being taken care of. 

3. Windshield Wipers

It might not snow a lot near Newport News, VA. But you want to be prepared for it no matter what. Your windshield wipers should be in good working order to ensure that the snow can easily be wiped off. Test them out and see if they need to be changed out. 

If they are working properly, you won’t have to worry. If they seem to be grinding and scratching, then chances are now would be a good time to get a new pair of windshield wiper blades.
