Lease repairs and tips

At the end of your vehicle lease agreement, you will need to return your car to the dealership. Before the car is accepted back, it will go through an inspection process. Note that there are some wear and tear issues that the inspector will overlook and others they will charge you for. If you want to know the best way to prepare for a lease inspection, consider the following list. Read your lease agreement to make sure you are clear on what is acceptable wear and tear. Dealerships will not charge you for normal wear and tear, but the specifics vary from dealership to dealership. For example, for some dealerships, minor scratches, dents and dings are considered normal. Damaged interior, dented trim and missing parts are considered excessive, and you will likely be charged. Learn the difference. Go through the leased vehicle and remove all your personal property before lease inspection. Check the glove compartment and center console. Then make sure that the car’s manual is still in the glove compartment. Check that there is nothing missing, including the lighter cap, floor mats and anything else that came with the car when you originally leased it. Inspect the vehicle yourself for things to do to prepare it, and note any concerns. Write down tasks as simple as getting car washed and vacuumed. Note any concerning marks, scratches and damaged areas that may pose a problem or incur a car lease penalty. You may want to take pictures of the car from all angles and inside and out. You can compare your photos with the inspector’s if a concern arises...

How to drive safely in rain

Driving in the rain can be a scary thing, and in the night, it is even worse. It is difficult to see out of the window, and the other car’s lights seems to make it worse. Especially when you begin to hydroplane! Here are some tips to avoid getting into an accident while it’s raining. 1. Keep both hands on the steering wheel at all times: Keep all distactions, such as cell phones or even radio off and away from you. While focus to your front do Take a look in back view mirror as well right hand side & left hand side so that you get an 360 degree over view what is happening around. 2. Keep a minimum of a good five car length from the car in front of you: You never know what other drivers are going to do or what could happen to you! If that feels too close or too far a rule of thumb is 1 second distance per 10 miles per hour. That holds true especially in bad weather. 3. Drive at or below the speed limit to the extent that you are comfortable with, and can see far enough in front of you to appropriately make driving decisions. 4. Be aware that the maximum speed at which you can drive is directly related to your tires.: Be sure to know what their condition is inn. Radial tires have better traction than the old bias ply polyester tires, but even they lose their ability to grip wet pavement and channel water out as the tread wear out. 5. Be aware of...

How to drive a car in winter weather

How to drive a car in winter weather Driving your car while the roads are snowy and icy can be a stressful ordeal. While some vehicles are well-suited for the snow, some are not and require preparation and know-how to keep the car under control. Get your car serviced regularly. Preventive maintenance is key. Make sure your battery, cooling system, and windshield wipers are in tip-top shape. You’ll spend less money servicing your car than you’ll spend towing and fixing it if your car gives out while you’re on a dark, snowy road. Buy snow tires or add chains to your existing tires if you live in a very snowy climate. Snow tires have special treads that dig through the snow and allow the vehicle to have better traction, They’re also made of a more tender type of rubber, so that they don’t freeze hard in cold temperatures. Some all season tires do not clean themselves of snow properly and become clogged in deep snow.It is best to get snow tires for the drive wheels. For rear-wheel drive, add snow tires to the rear. If your car is equipped with tires that have predominantly thin tread lines, they will clog easily, making steering or getting traction difficult. Most tire stores will insist on snow tires or studded tires to all four wheels of a front wheel drive vehicle. The rear tires should have adequate or equal traction as the front tires for proper handling and preventing fish tailing, especially when making turns. It isn’t critical to have studs on all four ties of a front wheel drive car, but...
