Winter Car Maintenance Tips

Posted on: November 15th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

winter car maintenanceSnow is on its way, Jack Frost has started nipping at noses and winter is practically at our front door in Colorado. Heck, we’ve already seen a few flakes and flurries, we’ve had a couple of icy-road mornings. That means it’s time to turn your eyes toward winter car maintenance. Driving in the winter is a very different beast than driving in more temperate conditions, and knowing what needs to be working its best when the heavy snowfall hits are important. If you haven’t yet, make sure to check these things off your list before you embark on any winter road trips, and hopefully you won’t need us for auto body repair.

Triple Check Your Lights

Decreased visibility is far more frequent throughout the winter months. Plus, now that we’ve done the whole “fall back” thing with daylight savings time, it’s getting darker much earlier. You have to know that your lights are working, and working well so you aren’t left driving at night without the ability to see further than a couple feet in front of your car. Vehicles with broken head or tail lights make the road unsafe for everyone on it, so this is a biggie.

Battery

Batteries that are already struggling have an even harder time when the temperatures drop. Checking your battery health is an important step to save you from being stranded on a snowy road with a broken car. Having a volt test performed on your vehicle’s battery before winter strikes is the best way to tell if you’re good to go or it’s time to seriously consider replacing this crucial part.

Survival Kit

This is less about vehicle maintenance but is still crucial for winter preparedness and your vehicle. No matter how much troubleshooting you do, there’s still a chance that something goes wrong while you’re on the road. Having a fully-stocked emergency kit could mean the difference between life and death (it sounds extreme, but when winter temps drop low and snowfall piles high, depending on where you get stuck it could very well be true). Most emergency kits include food, water, blankets, spare clothes, a flashlight, a spare cell phone charger that works in your car’s cigarette lighter or USB port, and jumper cables. It’s also a good idea to keep a shovel in your trunk. This way, if you end up stranded, you’ll have what you need to get you through however long it takes to get someone out there to help you.

Defroster

A working defroster not only saves you time in the morning when you’re running late for work (darn sun not being up as early anymore!) but it also keeps you safe in icy and snow conditions on the road. When the fluffy stuff is falling down, a properly working defroster keeps it from building up on your windshield. It can also help keep your windshield from fogging up and hurting your visibility.

Heater

This one’s about comfort, mostly, but that’s important, too! The worst time to realize your heater doesn’t work is the first day you need it. Test out your heater early in the season and if something seems a little off, get it checked out for peace of mind.

Being on the road during the winter sometimes feels like a necessary evil, but taking these steps to ensure your vehicle is up to the task and ready for whatever the snowy season throws at you allows you to breathe a little easier and keeps you (and those around you) safe and sound behind the wheel.

Keeping Your Car Going

Posted on: October 27th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

keeping your car goingWe’ve been talking quite a bit about getting your vehicle ready for the winter months, but we’d be remiss to not stress the importance of being ready for whatever the weather may bring, regardless of the season. After all, we’re all driving around in giant chunks of metal daily, so it’s important to know what to do to keep it in the best shape possible, keeping your car going and you as safe as possible on the roads. As your auto body shop, we put together some biggies you need to pay attention to no matter what time of year it is.

Keep an Eye on Those Tires

Tires are one of the biggest things that can cause serious, life-threatening problems on the road, so it’s imperative that you keep an eye on yours. The more miles you put on them, and the kind of miles (not all pavement types treat your tires equally) will impact how long they last before they need to be replaced. If you haven’t in awhile, do the quarter test on your tires. Stick a quarter so that good ole’ George Washington’s head is upside down in one of the treads of a tire. If the tire doesn’t come all the way up to cover the tippy top of George’s head, it’s time to get new tires because yours are in serious danger of balding or blowing out. Plus, when there’s no telling what tomorrow’s weather might bring, the idea of poor traction is more than enough to put a knot in most driver’s stomachs.

Don’t Skip Scheduled Maintenance

Oil changes, tire rotations, air filter replacements, you know the shtick. The stuff your mechanic talks to you about every time you get your oil changed – those are the things you should never skip. Scheduled and routine maintenance is a must-do if you want your car to last as long as it should. Those cars that are well into the 200,000 and even nearing 300,000 miles and still running (though at that point we might recommend looking into a new road partner)? You can bet they rarely, if ever, missed a routine maintenance check on their vehicle. When you take your vehicle in regularly to get checked and get the oil changed before it’s running nearly dry, you allow plenty of points at which to spot serious problems before they become major safety issues.

Give Your Vehicle Some Lovin’

Aside from routine maintenance, it’s worth getting your car washed regularly and getting it detailed at least once a year as well. A clean car keeps rust at bay getting it detailed keeps it looking good as new much longer. Especially if you have pets, detailing your vehicle once or twice a year is a great addition to your regular vehicle-cleaning routines. A little extra TLC can only do good things for your vehicle’s longevity no matter the season.

Winter is on its way, and while you should definitely make sure you have snow tires ready to go and winter wipers in place if you need them, it’s also important to remember the tips we highlighted here year-round to reduce your risk of accidents and help keep yourself and others as safe as possible on the road.

Choosing the Right Tires for Winter

Choosing Winter Tires

The closer we get to November, the higher the likelihood that winter could hit at any moment. It’s that strange time of year in Colorado where it could be fall with a hint of summer one day, and the next day can bring 4+ inches of snow. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to get those winter tires back out and see if they are ready for another year or if it’s time to go shopping. If you’re in the market for new winter tires but aren’t sure what to pay attention to, here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to choosing winter tires. And, we can tell you, as an auto body repair specialist, we see countless repairs that could have been prevented if the vehicle had good winter or snow tires.

Will All-Season Tires Do the Trick?

Nope, sorry. I know, it’s hard to believe. Why call a tire all-season if it can’t live up to its name, right? But there are countless driving tests where it’s apparent that all-season doesn’t include the hazards of the road in true winter conditions. There’s a number of reasons for this, but perhaps one of the most important is this – all-season and winter tires are made from different material. While all-season tires are made of a stiffer rubber compound that helps the tire retain its shape while driving on hot pavement, winter tires are generally made of a water-loving compound that stays softer and more pliable in winter conditions and allows you the traction you need on snow and ice.

What About M + S Rated Tires?

According to Les Schwab, some all-season tires have an M + S rating on them, meaning they are tested for mud and snow, but they warn against using these tires in places that experience ice and snow regularly throughout winter. Here’s the thing about M + S tires – they are equipped to provide better traction in wet conditions, but when things start to get slick they still don’t provide the grab you need to keep you safe and sound on the road. If you’re determined to use an all-season tire year round, look for the mountain snowflake symbol. If that’s present, it means the tire has actually been tested and proven to perform in slicker conditions.

What the Heck Is Siping?

When you start searching around for information on winter tires, you’ll see the word “siping” pop up a lot. Most snow tires are already siped, which just means that there are small patterned slits on the lugs that create extra edges for better grip on slick roads. Additional siping can be done on used or new tires for a fee, but this is generally unnecessary unless you are regularly traveling on very slick roads and want the added safety.

There are plenty of other things to consider when winter rolls around – like whether or not chains are necessary and when they might be (hint: if you’re planning on skiing and snowboarding in the mountains this winter we definitely recommend them), studs, and so much more. Ask your tire salesperson what they might recommend or talk with your regular technician to determine what the best choices are for you to get ready for the winter months.

Fixes Before Selling Your Car

Posted on: September 29th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

what to fix before selling a carWhat to Fix Before Selling a Car

When it’s time to sell your car, you want to make sure you get the most money possible. If only it were as simple as snapping a few photos and putting it up for sale. Whether you’re planning on selling it yourself or taking it to a dealer for an offer, there are a few “what to fix before selling a car” items you can do to help ensure you’re getting top dollar for your beloved road warrior. And, it goes without saying, if you need auto body repair, you should get that taken care of before selling your car if you are looking for top dollar.

Tires

Tires an important item when thinking about what to fix before selling a car. If your vehicle is in need, replace the tires to up the resale value. Whether or not you need to put new tires on the car before you offer it up, make sure you get the tires aligned. Improper alignment is one of the things someone will notice right away when they test drive a vehicle, so it can pay big time to make this small adjustment ahead of time.

Brakes

This boils down to fundamental safety, which should not be overlooked when thinking about what to fix before selling a car. For whoever purchases your car, but it may also have a major impact on the value of your car. Fixing the brakes if there are any issues is a must-do before putting your car on the market again. Most buyers will high tail it out of there the second they hear grinding when they try to stop, so keeping brakes in tip-top condition is a biggie, especially if you’re planning on selling the car yourself.

Engine Repairs

Tires, brakes, and engine repairs are the big three that will often determine whether or not you get good cash for your vehicle. If there’s anything wrong with your vehicle’s engine, it absolutely needs to be taken care of if you’re hoping to sell for what your car is truly worth. No one wants to invest in a used car that’s going to cost them a big chunk above the asking price when the engine needs repaired just a couple months down the road.

Keep Maintenance Records

If you want to prove that your vehicle has been well cared for throughout your ownership of it, keeping detailed maintenance records may be another way to bring in some additional bucks for your trade-in or sell. A well-cared-for vehicle will run better for longer than one that frequently missed oil changes, ignored the little lights that come on in the dashboard and overall was not handled well.

There comes a time in every vehicle owner’s life where parting ways is the necessary next step. Whether your life and therefore driving needs have changed, you’re looking for a different style vehicle, or it’s just time for something new, you want to make sure you get the most out of the car that took you so many places while you had it. With these tips, you should be able to fetch a more than fair price for your prized possession and upgrade the way you deserve.

Best Time to Buy a New Car

Posted on: September 11th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

best time to buy a new carWe know that you can’t always predict when you’ll need to buy a new car, but if you can plan ahead, there are some things worth considering. Like traveling, purchasing holiday gifts, booking hotels, and so many other things these days, there are best and worst times to make a car purchase. If you see that purchase coming down the road, try to plan your purchase at one of these times for the best chance of the best deal. So, as your car body repair team, we thought we would give you our “insider” info on the best time to buy a new car.

End of Month

If you’re in dire need of a new car, this might help you save some extra cash. Going to the dealership at the end of the month could equal additional savings if your purchase could help put the manager over their quota, said Mike Rabkin, founder of From Car to Finish. If you really want to make the most of this particular chance at savings, it might be a good idea to brush up on your negotiating beforehand. These end of the month savings aren’t likely to just fall in your lap.

Keep an Eye on Special Offers

If you’ve been in the market for a car in the past (or watch TV pretty much any time) you’ve probably noticed that car manufacturers always seem to have some kind of special offer or seasonal sale going on. It’s such a frequent thing that it’s easy to get lost in the noise, but tune your ears to perk up when there’s an offer including a rebate. Rebate-based offers are a great way to save big because they are typically dealer incentives to clear out a model entirely. Another big offer day to consider is Black Friday. It might be a little hectic at the dealerships, but the savings could be well worth the mania.

New Model Time

When new year models come out, that means the pressure is on to sell off the last year’s models, so it is the best time to buy a new car. If you’re planning to give this trick a try, just remember that new model years rarely come around at the same time as the new calendar year. Check your favorite manufacturer and see if you can anticipate when their new models will be coming around and plan to shop for the previous year around that time.

End of Day

This isn’t just about the end of ANY day, it also pays to strategically choose the day of the week you decide to purchase. While you may save money at the end of the day on any day of the week with an eager salesperson who doesn’t want to lose the sale over a little negotiating, according to a study by TrueCar.com, people who purchased a car on Friday could pay as much as $2,000 more than those who bought the same car at the end of the day on Sunday.

How to Know When Your Car Needs a New Paint Job

Posted on: July 14th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

You Know You Need New Car Paint When…

Owning a car comes with a lot of responsibility. Some of it is anticipated when you drive off the lot – regular maintenance, oil changes, constant filling of the gas tank at too-high prices, the usual stuff. But then there are the things that sneak up on you, the things you didn’t even think to consider until suddenly they’re right there in front of you.

One of the easiest things to push to the back of your mind is the idea of new car paint. As you Denver car refinishing team, we know it seems like a big job that it’s understandable you would leave it at the bottom of your priority list when it comes to taking care of your car. If you’re wondering whether or not it might be time to move that “to-do” a little higher on the list, here are three common signs that your vehicle needs some paint lovin’.

1. Fading Paint

Over time, you may start to notice that the bright shiny candy apple red you fell in love with has faded to a dingier shade. It’s not unusual for the paint on your vehicle to lose its luster after some time. The most common causes for a fading paint job are damage from sunlight and not washing/waxing your vehicle on a consistent basis. If you notice your vehicle isn’t looking as sharp as it once was, call up your local auto body shop and talk to them about new car paint. Often a new coat of paint can restore your baby to its newly purchased glory.

2. Peeling Paint

You know how after you spend a weekend outside in the hot summer sun and wind up with a sunburn? And a few days later the peeling begins? The same thing can happen to your car. In some cases, after some time, the clear coat may begin to separate from the rest of the vehicle’s paint job. That unsightly peeling is a sure sign you need to reconsider the paint job.

3. Major Scratches

We all know that after you drive your vehicle for awhile, it starts to look a little less shiny and new than it did when you first bought it. That’s to be expected of course, and if you see an occasional small scratch or two, there’s no reason to call up your local shop and get a fresh coat of paint on the whole thing. In fact, a lot of newer cars come with a small paint stick in the glove box to help cover up those little scratches as they come about. But, if you recently had a minor accident or have found yourself with a handful of larger scratches, it might be time to give it a fresh coat.

Make Your Car Last Longer

Posted on: June 21st, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

make your car last longerWhen you purchase a car, there’s no way around the fact that it’s a big purchase and an even bigger chunk of change you’re committing to. So, it’s understandable that you want to get the most mileage and life out of the vehicle possible. But how do you make sure you can get up to and even past 200,000 miles without fearing a breakdown with every drive? At Accurate Auto Body Shop, we want to help ensure you get the most life out of your vehicle and make your car last longer.

Extending Your Car’s Life

There are several ways for you to make sure your vehicle is in good condition, and while regular maintenance will be the most important step in extending the life, let’s talk about some of the other things you can do, first.

If you generally hop in the car without looking around and hustle out of the garage when you’ve arrived home, it’s time to rethink the way you travel. At least once a week, include a “preflight” and use your senses to look for leaks, make sure all the lights are working properly, and everything smells normal. Keeping an eye on the general wellbeing of your vehicle can save you big time if you manage to catch a potentially serious issue before it gets truly dire.

Keeping your car clean to avoid rust and unnecessary wear and tear is another important piece of the life-extension puzzle.

Another thing you can do is simply drive less, but especially avoid taking short trips. When your vehicle’s engine doesn’t have the chance to get up to operating temperature (trips less than five miles in normal temperatures and less than ten miles in freezing temperatures) you risk a noxious sludge of oil, water and fuel that doesn’t have the chance to get burned off like it would on a longer trip.

The Role Maintenance Plays To Make Your Car Last Longer

Truly, the key to keeping your car in the best shape as long as possible is by conducting important car maintenance. This includes getting the oil changed regularly, using synthetic oil, changing out the transmission fluid at least by the time you hit 100,000, and there’s no harm in doing so earlier.

According to Kiplinger, never do a full flush of the transmission system without first replacing the filter.

While your automotive owner manual will lay out a schedule for what constitutes “regular maintenance” for your vehicle, sometimes these guidelines fail as your vehicle gets higher in mileage. That’s why it’s important to come up with a custom schedule to meet your vehicle’s needs alongside a trusted mechanic who knows the details of your car’s history and health inside and out. 

How to Use this Information

We hope this helps make your car last longer. And, if you have need of a little body work, or just need some dents removed or a new paint job to make your 100,000-mile car look as good as new, we can help! Call us at 303-344-2212 or contact us online.

Are Those Hail Damaged Car Deals Really Worth It?

Posted on: June 16th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

hail damaged car dealsSummer storms mean plenty of hail here in Colorado, and with hail comes the inevitable hail damaged car deals. You’ve seen the ads on TV, you’ve heard them on the radio – offers for “huge savings” on cars who suffered hail damage in the latest storm. It sounds lucrative, if you’re fine with some dimples, why not save a few thousand dollars, right? As your auto body shop, we caution you that there’s more to consider before buying into those “big deals,” from your local car dealership.

While it may be a great deal if you’re fine with some cosmetic damage, you should make sure to pay closer attention before you close the deal on one of these. (see our article Hail Damaged New Car: Deal or No Deal)

Is the Hail Damage Purely Cosmetic?

Sometimes the seemingly minor damage is misleading – a fierce storm producing large hail can cause some serious damage to more than just the exterior of a vehicle. Make sure you consult your auto technician before purchasing a hail damaged vehicle even if the price is temptingly low. Remember there might be a reason other than dimples that those thousands of dollars came off the initial price of the vehicle.

Will a Dented Car Affect Your Financing?

If you’re looking to purchase a vehicle with financing, make sure your lender will finance a hail damaged vehicle. It’s also a good idea to see if the dealer you’re purchasing from will fix the damage or offer a warranty on the vehicle. Another important factor to consider with hail damaged car deals is whether or not you’ll still be eligible for comprehensive insurance, which most lenders will require while you have a balance on your auto loan.

Think About the Resale Value for a Hail Dented Car?

If you’re not planning on having the car for an exceptionally long time and are looking to resell it for some cash to go toward your next vehicle purchase, you’ll want to think long and hard about how much the hail damage will impact the resell value. See our article Saving your Car from Hail Damage)

Should You Claim Hail Damage on Your Vehicle?

If it’s your car that’s been damaged, it’s debatable whether or not you should claim the damage. Hail damage is only covered under comprehensive insurance, and USA Today reports that carinsurance.com recommends not bothering with a claim unless the damage amount exceeds your deductible. If you own the car outright and can live with the damage, opting to pocket the insurance check, just remember that amount will be taken out of future damage claims. If you still owe on an auto loan, you will likely have to get the vehicle fixed.

How to Use this Information

We hope this helps if you are considering those hail damaged car deals that are being advertised. There’s plenty to consider when hail damage strikes, whether you’re in the market for a new vehicle or dealing with the damage on a car you already own. If you are looking to get the damage repaired or have other auto care needs, we’d love to help you get your vehicle in tip top shape. Call us at 303-344-2212 or contact us online.

Car Maintenance: Most Important Auto Maintenance Items

Posted on: May 23rd, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

important car maintenanceIf you own a vehicle, you know that you have to keep it maintained. If you look at the service manual of your car, it seems like half the manual is a list of items they deem as important car maintenance. As your collision repair experts, we take a quick look at what are the most important car maintenance items you should do. And yes, every now and then you should do the main services.

Auto Maintenance Tip #1: Change the Oil

When it comes to important car maintenance items, changing the oil is the most critical. Oil is the lifeblood of your car’s engine. If you run out of oil, your engine will freeze and, well, you will probably need a new engine. At which point, you may as well get a new car.

Oil keeps all the parts in your engine rotating smoothly. But, over time, your oil gets dirty due to exhaust and gas, so it is not as effective. Plus, the heat from the engine breaks down the oil and it becomes thin over time. When thin, the parts in your engine begin to wear out.

As a result, you should change your oil every three months or 3,000 miles. But, in some cases, you can go 5,000 or even 10,000 between oil changes, especially with some newer vehicles. Regardless, you should check your manual and see what they recommend for your car.

Tip #2: Replace the Air Filter

The air filter keeps the air going into your engine clean. It removes dirt and other impurities that can damage your engine. But, it can get clogged over time. When it gets clogged, your engine will not be able to pull in as much air. As a result, you will not get as much horsepower or gas mileage. And, you can run the risk of your car simply stalling and dying.

Like oil changes, how frequently you change your air filter can vary. A lot depends on the number of miles you have driven and what the air conditions were when putting on those miles. That being said, you should consider changing your air filter every 7,000 or so miles.

Tip # 3: Check Brake Pads

You like stopping, right? So, you can imagine it is important to keep an eye on your brake pads and get them replaced when they wear. Pads can last a long time, or go quickly depending on how you drive. If you are an aggressive driver that rapidly accelerates and then slams on the brakes to stop, your pads will not last long. Also, if you are one of those that drives while riding the brake pedal, again your pads will go quickly. If you live where it is hilly, you will likely wear them down faster than normal.

So how do you know when to replace your pads. Most pads come with a metal tab inside them. As they wear, the metal tab becomes exposed to the rotor and creates a squealing sound. When you hear it, it is time to replace your pads. If you own a newer BMW or other high-end cars, many have an electronic warning that you will see on the dashboard.

Maintenance Tip #4: Check Tire Wear

Tires are a very important car maintenance item, after all, they are what keeps you on the road. But, these are often low on the list of maintenance items for a lot of people.  Most tires are rated for around 40,000 miles, but that can vary. Here in Colorado, they don’t last that long as our tires lose air pressure more rapidly due to altitude. Also, the heavier your car, your tires may wear faster. Regardless, you should rotate your tires a couple of times a year and ensure you get an alignment every year or so. This will help keep the wear a little more even on the tire.

Tires come with wear indicators in the tread. When your treads become even with the wear bar, then you will need to buy new tires. Every month, just check your tire wear, especially the outer and inner sections. Run your hand over them and see if the tread is even.

How to Use this Information

We hope this list will help you prioritize service maintenance for your car. When push comes to shove, you should ensure these items are the focus for your vehicle. But, every now and then, you will need to do a full service to check transmission, fuel injectors, belts, hoses as well as all the other fluids in your car. And, if you need any auto body repair work, we can help on that front. Call us at 303-344-2212 or contact us online.

Auto Service Clubs: Are They Worth It

Posted on: April 8th, 2017 by Webolutions Hostmaster No Comments

auto service clubs

A lot of people only think of auto service clubs as added roadside assistance. They are who you call when you need help with a flat tire, need your battery jumped, or a tow. And, while many auto service clubs offer those services to their members, there are other aspects to them you may want to consider. As your Aurora auto body repair experts, we take a look at these service clubs so you can better decide if they are worth it.

Consider your Warranty Coverage

If you simply want an auto service club on-call for those times you might need roadside assistance or just a jump, you might want to look at your car’s warranty coverage. If you purchased a new or used car through a dealer, sometimes they offer basic roadside assistance. If that is the case and all you are looking for is plain old roadside help, you may forgo membership in an auto club such as AAA or Good Sam. However, be aware that warranties may limit roadside assistance based on the age of the vehicle and mileage. And, when you have a flat in the middle of nowhere, it is not a good time to learn that the coverage you thought you had is no longer valid because your car has too many miles on it.

Auto Service Club Options

AAA – AAA is the most widely known auto service club. They do offer basic assistance for flat tires, jump starts, fuel delivery, lockout assist, towing and more. Their plans are based on the region, so rates can vary, but it is usually about $56 for basic, individual coverage.

Good Sam Roadside Assistance – Like AAA, they offer roadside assistance packages starting at around $59, but it is considered more comprehensive without some of the AAA limitations.

You may also want to check with your insurance company. AllState, for example, offers a lot of roadside assistance programs at a flat fee when you need them. There are also programs where you may not expect, such as with your mobile provider. Verizon does offer roadside assistance which is added to your monthly bill at $3 per month. Lastly, a lot of credit card companies provide similar roadside programs that you can enroll in.

Added Value Extras

AAA, without a doubt, offers you the most added value beyond just roadside assistance, especially if you travel a great deal. Many hotels have special discounted rates for AAA members. Some discounts include zoos, amusement parks, water parks and more. Also, here in Colorado, AAA members get discounts on lift tickets at Copper Mountain. Plus, you can get all sorts of trip planners, no-fee traveler’s checks, maps and more to help you with your travels.

AARP also provides roadside assistance and provides members a lot of added value that comes standard with AARP. So, if you are old enough, AARP is another valid option with discounts on lodging and even car rental.

How To Use This Information

Overall, if you feel like you would take advantage of more than just roadside assistance, joining a particular auto service club may be worth if for you. But, if you just want roadside assistance, you may simply want to look at your warranty or other services you already have, such as your mobile phone or credit card company. And, when it comes to actual auto body repair, we can help. Call us at 303-344-2212 or contact us online.
