When purchasing a new car, most people typically choose one based on engine capacity, fuel efficiency, size, or the level of comfort. The car battery is probably last on their checklist. However, because the battery manages a massive range of tasks such as starting the engine and powering in-car computers, it should be considered as one of the most important parts of any modern vehicle.

In addition to various vehicle maintenance services such as oil changes, tire rotations, or replacing air filters, taking care of your car battery is one of the most effective ways to ensure that your car continues to operate at its peak performance level. Unfortunately, one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls is a dead battery.

Wondering how often do you need to change your car battery? Ask your mechanic to inspect your car battery to see if it’s time for a car battery replacement.

Maintaining properly inflated tires is an easy, yet very important maintenance tip. Properly inflated tires make driving safer, extend the life of tires, help reduce harmful emissions into the ozone and make our nation less dependent on foreign oil. In the U.S., it is estimated that driving with properly inflated tires could reduce gasoline consumption by more than 1.2 billion gallons annually.

Tires should be inspected every month to see if the tread is in good condition. There are two easy ways to know when you should get new tires:

  • Insert a U.S. penny into a tire’s tread. If Abraham Lincoln’s head is visible, it’s time for new tires. Several spots should be tested about 15 inches apart because the tires often wear unevenly.
  • Built-in “wear bars” also indicate when tires should be changed. If the wear bar is flush with the outside of the tread, it’s time to replace the tire.
Are you wondering when should you get new tires? Ask the tire repair technician at Big Lake Automotive for professional advice.
