Many times, we take our vehicles for granted—as long as we feel comfortable and safe. However, as the miles add up, it is normal that the components of your suspension system will wear out. They will wear out even faster than normal if you consistently drive over bumpy streets and hit potholes or other obstacles in the road. If you’re starting to notice steering problems, it could be that your shocks are going bad. As a conscientious driver, you should know what are the signs of bad shocks and how your car axles will be affected.

So what are the signs of bad shocks?

The braking system of your vehicle is one of its most important safety features. Your brakes should respond the instant you step on the pedal, slowing you down or coming to a complete stop. But as with any other part of your car, periodic brake repair and maintenance will be necessary so that you can drive down the road with confidence in your vehicle’s stopping power.

You may be wondering just how often should you get your brakes changed. Mileage guidelines for replacing brake components will vary depending on several factors. Have your brakes inspected frequently (possibly at every oil change) to make sure they are remaining in good condition or whether it’s time for a needed brake repair. Consider the factors below:

Many drivers are aware that the main function of the radiator is to keep the engine from overheating. How does it work, you wonder? The engine produces heat while it is operating. The coolant (a mixture of water and coolant) in the radiator circulates through the engine, cooling it down by absorbing this heat. It then passes back through the radiator where it is cooled off again, starting the cycle over.

How do you know when to replace a radiator, you ask? A properly maintained radiator should last for the life of your vehicle, at the least, up to eight to 10 years. Have your radiator and the coolant mixture inspected at every tire rotation or oil change service. Your mechanic should check the hoses for cracks or leaks, and for a buildup of sludge. It is a good idea to have the radiator flushed and refilled with fresh coolant about every two years.

There are some circumstances the radiator may need to be replaced to keep your car running safely. Here are a few examples:
