Automotive “Green” tips for Earth Day

“By changing a few habits, you can do your part in helping the environment, say the experts at the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). ASE recommends regular vehicle maintenance and better driving habits as two easy-to-implement strategies. What’s more, improved automotive habits will help your vehicle last longer and command a better resale price.

The following tips from ASE can put you on the road to environmentally conscious car care:

  • Keep the engine running at peak performance. A misfiring spark plug can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent. Replace filters and fluids as recommended in the owner’s manual.
  • Don’t ignore that ‘Service Engine’ light. Today’s vehicles have much cleaner tailpipe emissions that they did 30 years ago, but a poorly running engine or faulty exhaust system will cause your vehicle to pollute much more than it would otherwise.
  • Keep tires properly inflated and aligned. Not only will you reduce the engine’s effort and, thus, gasoline consumption, your tires will last longer too, saving you money and easing the burden at recycling centers. Here at Davis we will properly inflate your tires at no cost.
  • Have your vehicle’s air conditioner serviced only by a technician certified to handle and recycle refrigerants. Older air conditioners contain ozone-depleting chemicals, which could be released into the atmosphere through improper service.
  • Remove excess items from the vehicle. Less weight equals better gas mileage. Remove that roof-top luggage carrier after vacations to reduce air drag, too.
  • If you do your own repairs, properly dispose of engine fluids and batteries. The local sanitary landfill accepts used motor oil and more here.  Remember too that improperly disposed fluids such as antifreeze can harm pets and wildlife. You can also contact local government for hazardous material drop-off/recycling stations.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded to improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. More than 360,000 automotive service professionals hold current ASE certifications. They work at all types of facilities, from new car dealerships, to national chains, independent repair shops, fleets, parts stores, and more. There employers often display the blue and white ASE sign, while the technicians wear shoulder insignia or lapel pins identifying himself or herself as ASE certified.

Here’s what some of his customers had to say about their experience with him:

“Wonderful & No Hassle on the Purchase of 2016 Canyon”

I just purchased a 2016 GMC Canyon with no hassles or hiccups. Everything went so smoothly, the sale, financing, add-ons I requested. Just wonderful! Robert, John & Kristin were really good to work with. They know their stuff & they got me the best deal that they could & they even went a little farther. I would say they all gave a 110% when I purchased my new vehicle. In the past I had a 2007 GMC Sierra truck which I took to Davis GMC & I always had good service & this is the main reason I went to Davis GMC to purchase a new vehicle. I received very good service & I know that Davis GMC will continue to give me good service as they have shown me with the purchase of my new Canyon. Thank you Robert, John & Kristin & all the staff @ Davis GMC because without each one of you Davis GMC would not be the helpful, polite, friendly dealership it is. Thank you all & God Bless Each One of You! – chagoo

“Great first time buying experience! “

This is the first vehicle I have bought and Davis GMC made it an experience I will never forget. Everyone was so friendly and Shawn and Robert made me feel so comfortable with every decision I made. Every question I had was answered right away and I was never unhappy. They did whatever they could to make sure I was satisfied with my vehicle. I highly recommend these guys to anyone and everyone looking to purchase a new vehicle or trade in for something else! Thanks for the great experience Davis GMC! – Shalese S.

Do I need Winter Tires?

When it comes to peace of mind driving in the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter tires. Did you notice that I didn’t call them snow tires? That’s because today’s winter tires do so much more than provide extra traction in deep snow. They also give you superior traction on icy and even dry roads when temperatures drop below freezing. A combination of specialized tread patterns and rubber compounds are what give winter tires the edge over all-season tires. These advanced compounds allow the tires to remain flexible for improved contact with the road which provide you with unmatched safety and traction.

Winter tires should also be installed in sets. You may think that on a front wheel drive car that you would only need them on the front. But by not having them on the rear the handling balance of the car will be upset and you run the risk of the rear skidding because of the lack of traction. Also, on a rear wheel drive vehicle most of the braking and ALL of the steering is done through the front wheels, so why would only you put them on the rear?

Once you’ve decided to purchase winter tires you may want to have them mounted on their own wheels. A set of winter wheels doesn’t cost very much and allow for a much quicker and less expensive change over in the Spring and Fall. Another alternative is to have winter tires mounted on your factory wheels and then have a set of custom wheels and tires for Spring and Summer.

If you have any questions regarding tires and custom wheels feel free to contact our tire store at 403-527-2787 or visit our website here. Remember, tires are like shoes for your vehicle; dress appropriately!
