How Long Can a Car Battery Last?


Your car's battery is essential because it enables your engine to start at all. The battery feeds the vehicle's starter by bringing an electrical current that powers the engine. If the battery is running low, the vehicle may be slow to start. If the car's battery dies completely, the engine won't start and you won't be able to go anywhere. To avoid getting stranded, maintaining your car battery's lifespan is key.


How to Check Your Tires for Wear


Ensuring you follow safe driving practices is vital to keep yourself, others and your vehicle safe. Keeping track of your tires' tread is an essential factor to staying safe while on the road.

You can keep yourself and others safe by frequently checking your tires for wear and replacing your tires when they become unsafe to drive with. We've created this comprehensive guide to explain how a tire's tread keeps you safe and how to check your tires for wear.
