"Dave Solomon and the crew were incredibly accommodating. They reviewed the scope of the work necessary to relieve my vehicle of the check engine light, and determined to differ to the dealer. They researched, checked the error codes, took the time to consult me, and kept my vehicle until I could retrieve it after a long day at work... all without a fee. I have incredible respect for the local business that prizes customer care. This one exemplifies true service. My sincere gratitude, and blessings."

Horror movie idea:

It's a 90°F day. You and the family take a ride to your favorite local lake or beach for a fun day in the sun. There's no shaded parking left - you should have left 20 minutes earlier. Oh well, you think - and park in direct sunlight.

Little do you know, your car's refrigerant is leaking and your A/C system is slowly becoming inoperable...and it won't be hours until you return to your vehicle, imagining how you'll blast the A/C for some cool relief as soon as you start the car...😱

Have your car's A/C system inspected to avoid starring in this horror film 🤣

Who remembers the Reliant Robin vehicle?

Often dubbed the dumbest car ever made, it is definitely up there on the list of strange vehicles. With only three wheels, it was created to act as a "loophole" so that drivers would only need a motorcycle license in order to drive it.

Funny enough, the Reliant Robin still holds the record today of being the second-highest-selling fiberglass vehicle on the road, just behind the Chevrolet Corvette!

Check engine light on? Don't ignore it!

Did you know one of the most common check engine light repairs is replacing the oxygen sensor? Not only does a faulty oxygen sensor cause your vehicle's check engine light to turn on, but it can also lead to as much as 40% lower fuel efficiency, can cause damage to your vehicle’s exhaust system, and adversely impacts the environment.

Proper tire tread is vital to the overall safety of your vehicle. If you notice that your tires are worn, try the penny tire tread test.

Grab a penny and place it head first into a few different tread grooves on your tire. If Lincoln’s head is covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining and are in the clear.

If the top of Lincoln’s head is showing, your tires are severely worn and should be replaced.

04/23/2020

Spark plugs are a vital component of your vehicle, and are also one of the hardest working. The average spark plugs fires up to 400 times per minute per cylinder, which is why these small parts need to be replaced periodically. Worn spark plugs can lead to engine damage, reduced fuel efficiency, and poor engine performance such as misfiring and sluggish acceleration.

It is important to have your vehicle inspected if you notice any of the following symptoms:

- Rattling, knocking or pinging noises coming from the engine
- Hard vehicle start
- Reduced vehicle performance
- Decreased fuel efficiency

Hear a squealing or grinding noise while braking? You're more than likely driving with worn brake pads.

The lifespan of brake pads depends on a few factors, including your driving habits, the quality of the brake pads, and your vehicle. You can check your vehicle's owner's manual for information regarding when your vehicle's brake pads should be replaced. However, it is always important to have your vehicle inspected as soon as you experience an issue with your brakes, including the following symptoms:

- Squealing or grinding noises while braking
- Vehicle takes longer to slow or stop than usual
- Spongy brake pedal
- Vibrating while braking

Healthcare workers have expressed that multiple COVID-19 cases have been tracked down to the gas pump. It may come at no surprise, but studies conducted in 2011 found that 71% of gas pump are covered in contaminants. With the information that COVID-19 can live up to 3 days on on plastic and stainless steel, it is important to take proper precaution while pumping your gas.

You can lower your risk by using gloves or paper towels to gas up, using touch-free pay options, using disinfecting wipes to clean the gas pump before touching it, and staying as physically separate from others as possible when you refuel.
