Reminder: Time To Get Your Car Checked!
Now that we’ve entered the Fall Season it is the PERFECT time to get our car checked.  From the tires, brakes and oil changes all the way to having your windshield wipers replaced.  
There are many fast oil changing places that will check all these things for you as part of your oil change.  You can have your fingers do the walking and search for quotes and discount codes to use.  I personally have my go to spot in Long Beach, CA since working out there and they email me coupons and specials.  The manager knows me as a regular and will let me haggle with him for a lower price whenever possible.  Ha!
Get those tires checked.  If your tread is .25 ways below the middle of a quarter then it’s time to think on a replacement.  Tire shops offer discounts and rebates when you replace all four tires such as buy 3 get 1 Free!  
Check your car’s manual on recommended maintenance such as changing transmission fluid, gas filters etc.. it will not only extend the life of your car but will help in getting better mileage and saving at the gas pump!

Most IMPORTANTLY:  The roads will soon be wet and slippery.  The best thing to do for yourself and family is to make sure you have ALL the abilities to keep your car safe for you and them.

I’m happy to say my Valvoline guys took care of my engine and transmission this weekend and IMMEDIATELY feel the difference in my car.  I changed my brakes in May and tires are still good for a few more miles as I look save up to replace them.  Wiper blades were on sale during the Summer got a top notch design to keep my vision clear whenever the rain decides to come down on us.

STAY Safe everyone!

    Why not do the repairs/maintenance yourself?

      I no longer have a garage… Live on an incline and it's illegal to do so. I can fix cars before the chips being placed in and not the new ones.

      I also don't recommend doing brakes on your own… you need to let the pros handle that.
