Usually we don’t think about the tires on our vehicle until they need to be replaced or there is a problem. This goes along with one of our previous blogs regarding forming a relationship with your car, which includes reading the manual. Picture this: While driving the other day, a mysterious light appeared on my dashboard looking very similar to this: ( ! ).

Most of us know we need to change our car’s oil after a certain amount of miles, but oftentimes we don’t take care of other aspects of our vehicles like we should. There are many parts that work together to make a car run, from the battery to the steering and more. So, besides the oil, what is an important part of your car to keep an eye on? Your brakes!

Now that Labor Day has passed, we are unofficially in the fall season, even though it still feels very much summer here in Brevard County. To most of us, Labor Day is a just holiday that gives us a three-day weekend, with a much-needed break from work or school. We take advantage of this free day and usually plan trips or fun activities that we don’t normally have time to do. Despite celebrating it every year, not everyone knows the history and meaning behind Labor Day.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, you know that the 2016 Summer Olympics just concluded. Almost every country in the world sends teams to compete in various sports, and for three weeks it’s all anyone can talk about. In the spirit of the Olympics, it’s worth noting some of the similarities between the games and the car industry.
Distracted driving accounts for most of the rear-end collisions we see in our day. The default conclusion now when you see a vehicle pile-up is that the guy in the back was texting or focused on something else instead of the road. However, sometimes faulty brakes are indeed the cause (although certainly not as often as Mr. Texter claims). Brakes are like dental care in that an ounce of prevention is worth well over a pound in cure. If you get your brake pads and fluid checked and replaced routinely, then you will seldom need to worry about more serious brake repairs. On the other hand, neglecting your squeaky brakes can often lead to more serious and expensive repairs, and even to an unsafe vehicle that is more likely to involve you in an accident.
