August 2013

The heat is on! Summer is in full swing, I hope it's been treating you and your family well.
It's also car buying season. Whether you are upgrading the family car or buying a vehicle for junior to use off at college it's always a great idea to get the vehicle inspected before you buy it.
This month we are offering $10 off our Pre-Purchase Inspection. We also have an interesting article on tire pressure.

You know I love to hear from you, so send me your thoughts

Dear Ron,

Ulysses from HB writes...
How can I tell what my tire pressure is supposed to be? I bought my car used and the manual is long gone.
Ulysses, having the correct tire pressure is important for safe driving, steering and stopping, not to mention good fuel economy and long life from your tires. Most vehicles have the specified tire pressure listed on a label in the driver's door opening for original tire and wheel sizes.
If you don't have the label you can stop by and we'll determine the correct pressure, adjust the tire pressure for you and write it in the door jamb for future reference. You can also go to an online manual guide.
Contrary to popular belief, the correct tire pressure is not listed on the tires themselves. What is listed on the sidewall of your tire is the maximum allowable weight rating at the maximum pressure. Best to use the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation for ultimate performance.
Tires that are over-inflated will give you a bouncy ride and a poor-handling vehicle. On the flip side, tires that are too low can cause premature wear and could cause skidding when braking or cornering.
Pre-Purchase Inspection
Used Car  
Before you purchase your next "new-to-you" vehicle, bring it to us for a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection. We will check the vehicle out bumper-to-bumper to help you make a sound buying decision. In addition to checking for possible mechanical issues, we will inspect the vehicle for previous body damage, compare the VIN against the manufacturer's data base for warranty or recall issues, and check smog history.
You will leave with an easy-to-read inspection sheet detailing all areas of the inspection and outlining any concerns that may need attention. Our Pre-Purchase Inspection is only $85, and the peace of mind is priceless. Take advantage of the coupon below for $10 off our regular price.
