Three Things You Should Know During Tire Swap-over Season

Three Things You Should Know During Tire Swap-over Season

Winter is officially over and we are beginning to see signs of Spring. The sun is shining in the sky, the grass is starting to show, and soon the flowers will be flourishing. We are beginning to put away our winter coats and break out our lighter sweaters, but what about your vehicles?

Cute, Not Cute: How To Prevent Rodents From Damaging Your Car’s Engine

Cute, Not Cute: How To Prevent Rodents From Damaging Your Car’s Engine

Neither one is fun. If you are wondering why rodents would even want to snack on wiring, it’s because they are often made out of soybean-based materials. Automakers also use other food-based materials such as corn, rice husks, wood, and other sugar-based food. Yum! They are a tasty treat for hungry critters. Even bunnies have been known to snack on these. In 2013, Denver International Airport made headlines thanks to the rabbits who invaded the airport parking lots for warm ... read more
