SUMMER ROAD TRIP CAR MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST

Denver is known for its pristine weather and relative access to some great road trips. Whether it’s a few days in the mountains, a weekend in the desert, or a week near the ocean, everything is within reach. The best way to plan and execute a perfect summer road trip is to take the worry out of potential car problems so you can keep your mind on the road and your favorite summer jams.

 HOW TO MAKE YOUR CAR BATTERY LAST LONGER

When you’re running late, very few unpredictable circumstances prove to be beneficial because, as we all know, if something can go wrong, it usually does. Think about it: you wake up late, maybe forget your lunch, hit every red light on the way, maybe you get caught in a sudden torrential downpour. Or maybe you don’t even make it that far. Maybe when you get to your car, close the door, and put the key in to start it, nothing happens. Of course, you think. The battery chose today to die on me. What now?

WHEN TO CHANGE YOUR TIRES (SEASONAL)

Rumor has it that Colorado receives about 300 sun-filled days per year. While the exact number is debatable, one thing is for sure: there’s always plenty of fair weather for exploring. What most people tend to forget, though, is that some of those sunny days can change in an instant, giving way to a sudden torrent of rain, snow, or deep freezes.

Each has its own set of ... read more

WINTER TIRES AND WHY THEY MATTER

WINTER TIRES AND WHY THEY MATTER

The Denver metro area has already seen its first snowfall, which means that areas in the mountains are well on their way to winter. We often think that the winters are relatively mild in the city, which is why it makes such a popular destination for people to move to. What many people don’t realize, however, is that, mild or not, winter still brings snow, and all it takes is one wrong tire on one wrong patch of snow to cause an accident. Sometimes the difference between an accident and a smooth trip is how alert and careful the driver is, but during the winter months, snow tires can give you a certain advantage, because oftentimes accidents happen to the most cautious of drivers. Here’s what you need to know. What Are Snow Tires? Snow tires, simply put, are not all-season tires. They have deeper grooves to provide greater traction. They’re thicker.
