Tips for Staying Safe in the Snow

Tips for Staying Safe in the Snow

The holidays are almost here, which means for some of us, prolonged road trips to Grandma’s house for either Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years! With holidays fast approaching, we might find ourselves spending time out on the roads and possibly in the snow!  The team at Gary’s Auto Service is here to help! Here are tips for staying safe in the snow:  Slow down! It is important to remember that everything needs to be done slower in the snow, including accelerating, decelerating, and turning. When the pavement is covered in ice or snow, caution is key.  Give yourself extra time to brake to ensure you stay in control over your vehicle.  Make sure to keep longer following distance between you and the next car than normal.  All-Wheel Drive is helpful, but it doesn’t always make a difference. In spots of black ice, AWD won’t help you stop faster than a front-wheel or rear-wheel-drive vehicle.  Keep a steady pace at all times, goi ... read more

Why is August the Best Time to Buy a Car?

Why is August the Best Time to Buy a Car?

One of the biggest decisions we make is purchasing a car. It’s a huge investment and a stressful process from start to finish. At Gary’s Based on car sales and pricing from the past several years, it looks like August is one of the best times of the year to purchase a new car.   Due to a combination of the seasons changing from summer to fall, so there is less interest in car buying among most drivers. On top of that, most dealerships are looking to clean out their inventory to make room for newer models during August. This cost difference is exaggerated for SUV purchases, which drops over $400 compared to the average annual cost. If you’ve been looking for the right time to buy, this is it!   Although many car shoppers have considered times like Black Friday, New Year’s, and Christmas sales to be the best time to purchase a new car, the advertised discounts don’t add up to nearly as many savings as you can get by purchasing in August.

Summer is almost here! Will your Air Conditioning System be able to withstand the heat?

Summer Air Conditioning In Your Car   Summer is here! As the degrees on that thermostat climb and climb, make sure your car’s air conditioner can keep up with the summer heat. Ensuring that your vehicle’s A/C works properly through all kinds of weather is key to being comfortable when you travel or commute. Luckily, keeping your A/C running cool air through your car is easy to do if you swing by Gary’s Auto Service for a check-in. As vehicles age, they become prone to issues with basic systems like the A/C. If you’re debating whether or not your A/C needs work, check out these tips on malfunctioning air conditioner signs:   Full of Hot Air Possibly the most obvious sign of a damaged air conditioner is if you get warm rather than cold air flow.
