Pot holes are back Orange County!

Just because we didn’t have a lot of snow this year doesn’t mean why don’t have any pot holes in the Hudson Valley.

Winter is just about over. Spring is around the corner. Pot holes are everywhere.

Here are a few warning signs provided by the Car Care Council:

• Loss of control, swaying when making routine turns, bottoming-out on city streets or bouncing excessively on rough roads. These are indicators that the steering and suspension may have been damaged. The steering and suspension are key safety-related systems. Together, they largely determine your car’s ride and handling. Key components are shocks and/or struts, the steering knuckle, ball joints, the steering rack/box, bearings, seals and hub units and tie rod ends.

• Pulling in one direction instead of maintaining a straight path, and uneven tire wear. These symptoms mean there’s an alignment problem. Proper wheel alignment is important for the lifespan of tires and helps ensure safe handling.

• Low tire pressure, bulges or blisters on the sidewalls, or dents in the rim. These problems will be visible and should be checked out as soon as possible, as tires are the critical connection between your car and the road in all sorts of driving conditions.

“Every driver knows what it feels like to hit a pothole. What they don’t know is if their vehicle has been damaged in the process,” said Rich White, Car Care Council executive director. “If you’ve hit a pothole, it’s worth having a professional technician check out the car and make the necessary repairs to ensure safety and reliability,”

 

Good advice !

Every day we get phone calls from people just like you. The story is always the same. They were driving along a BAM!
