Summer Tires May Be Better for Local Drivers

Many people buy all-season tires for their vehicle, and they don't think anything more about it. They leave the same type of tires on the vehicle throughout the year. Other people use both summer tires and all-season tires. Which is the right way to go?

What type of traction control is in the Mazda CX-9?

For many years, traction control was just a dream. Either your car stayed on the road, or it did not. The blame was always placed on the driver rather than road conditions. Once road conditions became a known factor, the rush was on to find how to counter road condition problems. However, the real advances in traction control came with the technology revolution.

The Mazda CX-9 has an optional traction control system called the i-ACTV AWD. The i-ACTIV all-wheel drive program is an intelligent predictive system that gains knowledge as your drive. The system stores your use of force on…

Are Extreme Temperatures Affecting the Condition of My Car Battery?

The longer the battery is in your vehicle, the more it has to deal with the extreme cold and heat every year. These huge swings in temperature are having a negative impact on the car battery in a number of ways.

When the temperatures outside begin to plummet, the car battery has to work harder to be able to perform the chemical reactions needed to get power. If the temperatures get too extreme, the liquids inside of the battery may become thicker, expanding and pushing the boundaries of the casing, causing even more damage.

What is the Difference Between a Powertrain Warranty and a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty?

If you’re about to purchase a new or certified vehicle, the two most important warranties offered to you are going to be the powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranties. Understanding how they differ and what each cover will assist you in your decision-making process.

A powertrain warranty includes all oiled inner workings of the vehicle that propels it forward or backward. So, your engine, drivetrain, transmission, wheel bearings, and the differential are examples of the parts that are covered. There are items that are excluded as normal-wear parts.

Prevent Repairs with a Full Gas Tank

Keeping a full gas tank can avoid a lot of trouble. If you keep your gas tank full as much as possible, especially in the winter months, you will avoid having your gas lines freeze up. You will also prolong the life of your fuel pump.

The more air that you have in your gas tank, the more condensation you will have as well. Condensation has the potential to freeze, and if it makes its way into your fuel lines, they can freeze. If your fuel lines freeze, your car will not start.

Be sure also to take the time…

Oil Changes Don't Need to Occur So Frequently as You'd Expect

You don't have to change your oil as often as you might think. We once needed to get a regular oil change every 3,000 miles or so. Improvements in engines, the quality of oil and vehicles have altered that. These days it's not so uncommon for a newer vehicle to need an oil change just once every 7,500 miles. Some vehicles can even go for 10,000 miles.

You might have learned from mom or dad to get your oil changed every 3,000 miles. That isn't always a good thing these days. It might…
