December 1st, 2015
Auto Repair in Whiteville, NCThe Santas are in the stores, Christmas music is on the radio, and that means that before long, you’re going to be thinking about holiday travel.

Why You Should Never Drive Through Water

October 12th, 2015
auto repair in Raleigh, NCWell, it’s fall, and in many parts of the country that means that weather extremes are likely to start picking up. Storms, high winds, hail, heavy rain and flooding…and every time, there’s someone who tries to drive through high water only to get swept away. If they’re lucky, they can get out and be rescued by emergency crews.

  • You can’t see the road, so you really don’t know what you’re getting into and can easily drive straight into a ditch
  • Especially around bridges, high water can wash away the ground underneath the pavement, meaning your vehicle can easily drop right through the road
