Some people are so frightened by the idea of driving in winter that they simply don’t do it, instead opting for public transportation or snowmobile. Just kidding about the snowmobile part – but the public transportation part isn’t a bad idea, if you can swing it. Some people just use a different car in the […]
You crack open your driver’s side door and hop onto the icy surface of your car seat, all clattery teeth as you shiver through another frigid winter morning. Eager to get some warmth, you shove the key into the ignition and turn. Your car’s engine sputters, then dies before it’s even had a chance to […]
Did you know that your car’s air conditioning can come in handy during the winter months? No, we’re not talking about your ability to weather a sudden and highly unlikely heat wave in the middle of January. Instead, we’re talking about using your air conditioning unit to stay safe on the road. How does it […]
People don’t usually think to wash their cars in the middle of winter. After all, who’s going to notice if your car could use a wash underneath all that snow and ice melt? The thing is, winter can be one of the most damaging times of year for your car’s exterior. Between road salts marking […]
Some people swear by rear wheel drive cars, until the weather starts to turn.

You know that driving in winter conditions can be scary and tough, but did you know that driving in certain states during the winter is particularly dangerous? In a way, it makes sense because of course some states have colder weather, more snow and ice and therefore treacherous roads for travelers on a regular basis. […]
If you live in a warm state like California, your mechanic probably doesn’t know much about salt residue and the problems that it can cause. If you live in a cold weather state, however, your mechanic can tell you all too well just how bad salt can be. Do yourself a favor and read how […]
Now that summer is gone and fall is rolling in, you may find yourself in that strange seasonal limbo: using your car’s heater in the morning and the air conditioner in the afternoon. After the long, hot summer, you may notice that your AC isn’t working quite as well as it used to. Some of […]
Driving in winter conditions is just like driving in the summer. Well, with the exception of the possibility that you could hit ice and lose control of your vehicle.
