Dayes Automotive Center is a best practices repair shop - it is the only way we know how to do business because that is how we grew up - honest hard work and no short cuts.

Monsoons are hard to predict and it is even harder to understand what they will do. Here are our recommendations:

- Make sure you tires are at pressure and inspect them regularly for abnormal wear

- Make sure your wipers are not close to becoming fossils from the summer heat and actually have some play and bend to them - we recommend replacing them in May to be safe

- Fluids should be at full - oil especially - and make sure your AC freon charge is solid

- Check all your lights - have someone stand behind and watch your breaks - when doing most driving during the day, we tend not to notice until it is too late that a light is out

- Check your turn signals and emergency lights - make sure they are working

- Check your air filter and make sure no debris is blocking your intake

Safety tip - if you are caught in a storm with no visibility, pull all the way off the road - we recommend leaving 2 tires on pavement but getting 2 tires off the shoulder if you can - turn off your lights, keep foot off the brakes, and turn on your emergency signal - stay out of the way of someone paying less attention.
