What does that smell mean?

Most vehicles start out with a “new car smell,” but there are other specific odors that motorists should never ignore. Identifying these suspect smells early on can help car owners be car care aware and avoid the hassle and expense of an unexpected breakdown, says the Car Care Council.

“Unusual smells can be the sign of serious, and potentially costly, trouble for your vehicle. By acting quickly and making necessary repairs, you’ll be able to breathe easy knowing there is no harmful damage to your car,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council.

Tire Pressure

Maximize your tires' performance and durability by monitoring and maintaining correct air pressure. Air is a gas, expanding when heated and contracting when cooled. For most of California, and late winter and early spring are especially important times for checking tire pressure—as the ambient temperature falls, tire pressure goes down. A good rule of thumb is that for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature change, tire pressure changes about 1 psi—higher as temperature rise, lower as they fall. Also, check your vehicle's owner's manual for recommended tire pressure.

How safe is your vehicle?

The brake system is your car's most important safety system. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair so that your car can continue to operate as designed. Brakes are a normal wear item for any car. Eventually, they're going to need to be replaced for both performance and safety reasons.

Checking Air Pressure

Check your vehicle's tires at least once a month, when the tires are cold (let the vehicle sit for at least three hours). Look in your owner's manual for the recommended tire inflation for your vehicle. Use a quality gauge. Don't "eyeball" tires—radial tires can look fine even when they're under-inflated.

Be sure to look for objects that have become wedged in the tread—they can work themselves further into the tire and cause air loss. And don't forget to check the spare!

Winterize Your Car

You wouldn't head out into cold weather without warm clothes; would you?  Your vehicle faces similar challenges as temperatures drop. The bottom line: your car needs a little extra attention to protect it from the cold weather. A little preparation before winter sets in may help prevent major headaches later.
