Safety Tips for Celebrating July 4th

July 4th is a day that many American's cherish because it is a time where we celebrate our freedom here in the United States and typically gather with loved ones for a good time. However, with the current pandemic, this holiday may not look like it used to. We know that many families and friends are used to coming together to BBQ, eat lavishly, and watch fireworks nearby. But many festivals and fireworks displays are closed this year, and social distancing measures are still recommended.  Even with the pandemic concerns, there are still some ways that you can celebrate safely. If you want to gather with a close group of family or friends, celebrate outdoors and wear your mask. Practice social distancing at all times as well. Don't forget to wash your hands and sanitize regularly, too.  One important thing to remember is driving safety. If you're planning on traveling anywhere, make sure that you drive with caution and are staying alert on the road ... read more

How Often Do I Need A Wheel Alignment?

Proper wheel alignment is very important when it comes to how well you are able to handle your vehicle. The correct alignment allows your vehicle to travel straight and not veer off to one side while on the road.

When Do My Brake Calipers Need to Be Replaced?

Depending on the model of your car, you will have disc brakes installed in the front of your vehicle and possibly in the back of your vehicle, as well. When you press down on the brake pedal, brake fluid is pushed through the master cylinder to your brake calipers. The brake fluid uses hydraulic pressure to press the piston inside the caliper, which will in turn press your brake pads against the rotors, slowing down or stopping your vehicle.  Over time, brake calipers can become rusty and contaminated, and begin to leak brake fluid - a vital part of your brake system. This is because the brake calipers actually absorb a ton of heat generated from the brake system, which can cause the seals inside the calipers to wear down. So, when do your brake calipers need to be replaced? Typically, it is recommended that they are replaced during a major brake service. However, your vehicle's owner's manual will also provide a recommendation for how often this service should be perform ... read more
