The Most Common Car Breakdown We See

The most common car breakdown and how it can be prevented.

Having your vehicle breakdown while you’re driving can be a scary and aggravating process. If you’ve had your Las Cruces brake check recently you can at least rest easy in knowing that you can stop your car and get to the side of the road.

The most common issue we see every day is a flat tire. They usually happen at the most inopportune time and if you do not know how to change a tire, it can be an incredibly frustrating experience.

Flat tires are mostly caused by wear and tear and lack of maintenance. Try to remember to check your tire pressure when you stop for gas and observe the wear on your tire tread at the same time. Check often for nails or glass that may be stuck in your tire and may potentially puncture it. Also, make sure that you have the right equipment to change a tire in your trunk and double check your tire pressure in your spare tire also.

If you’re not sure how to do any of this, don’t hesitate to ask somebody during your next Santa Fe car tune up.
