Ride the route.

Let’s protect those noggins and everything else!

Teach your child the rules of the road and practice riding the bike route to school with your child. If it’s been a minute since he rode a bike here are a few friendly reminders.

Always ride on the right side of the road, with traffic, and in a single file. Stop look and listen before crossing the street and always walk your bike across the street. Stay alert, no one likes a distracted rider. Be sure and use a fitted helmet, it might save your life!

Cold Facts About A/C Refrigerant

Your vehicles’ A/C system requires the use of a toxic gas we routinely call “Freon.” Decades ago, all vehicles used R12 Freon. More recently, a safer form came out called Freon R134a. Now, there is a much safer form called R1234yf. These gases cannot be mixed, so your technician needs to be aware of which Freon is used in your vehicle. It’s this gas that delivers the clod charge to the air inside your vehicle and cools the interior.

The Road to a Long-Lasting Vehicle

The key is to do regular service and maintenance, both for the mechanical systems and to the body and interior. When you keep your vehicle clean and running well, it will take you a long way down the road to a vehicle that lasts and lasts.
