Warm Weather

  • Check Wipers & Lights - If you need a bulb replacement or your wipers are in bad shape from the beating they took over the winter, then now is the time to address it. Clear visibility, especially on dark nights, is essential for the safety and security of both you and others.
  • Look at Tire Tread Depth and Uneven Wear -  As soon the ice and snow melts off your tires, check your tires for tread depth. Insert a penny, head first, between two treads. If you can see Lincoln's head, you need to think about replacing your tires. If you see evidence of cracking or uneven wear, bring it to the attention of our technicians during your next visit.
  • Check AC/Coolant System - Summer is here and temperatures are on the rise. Now is the time to make certain your vehicle's A/C is in top-shape and free of any defects. Vital fluids such as coolant and refrigerant can affect the performance of your vehicle. Not being aware of the status of these systems can lead to inefficiencies, unnecessary strain, and eventual mechanical breakdown, not to mention the risk of leaving you stranded without your A/C on a hot summer day.
  • Check Maintenance Schedule - When it comes to your car or truck, routine inspections and regularly scheduled maintenance can be compared to our own regular check-ups with the doctor. These crucial appointments help keep your car in good condition, while checking for any problems or issues that could worsen over time. Catching a small red flag during a routine inspection can prevent major (and expensive) problems down the road, and performing regular maintenance can help extend the life of your trusty vehicle. Check your schedule and set an appointment for any due service asap!
