But just because we have a comprehensive list of services doesn't mean you should totally ignore your car between visits to Christian Brothers Automotive. The three items listed below should be checked regularly to help you avoid future problems.
1. Windshield Wipers
Worn windshield wipers can turn a drive in the rain from a stressful experience into something very dangerous. Depending on how much you drive and where you live, you should probably replace your wipers ever six to twelve months. If you're looking for an indication if your wipers need to be replaced, listen for skipping, streaking, or squeaking sounds. You should be able to install new wipers in just a few minutes. Or come into Christian Brothers Automotive and let us do the job for you.
2. Tire Pressure
An essential tool in anyone's glove box is a tire gauge. The DMV recommends that you should check your tire pressure at least every other week. To find out what pressure your tires should be, look in your owner's manual. If you need more air, you should be able to use an air compressor at a local gas station for a few quarters.
Take a minute or two to check your headlights, brake lights, and turn signals with the help of a friend or family member. If you notice one isn't working, you can find a suitable replacement at a local auto parts store and make the change in under 15 minutes. Or you can swing by Christian Brothers Automotive and have us take care of the replacement for you.
