When it comes to winter, inclement weather is always a problem. San Juan Capistrano averages around 28 inches of rain per year. And if any of that rain falls in the wintertime, when temperatures can get into the low 40s, then roads will get slippery. That’s why you need to make sure you enough tread on your tires and that they’re properly inflated. We can square you away with some new tires if your vehicle needs them.
Like your tires, your brakes are an integral system to yours and other drivers’ safety. Here at Capo Mazda, we can check your brake pads and rotors to make sure that they’re in working order. And if there’s something wrong with them, then we can replace them.
Oil is a high viscosity fluid, meaning that it resists flow. In high temperatures, oil becomes less viscous. But when it cools down in the winter, it becomes more viscous, like honey, maple syrup, or molasses. It’s a good idea to make sure that you’re using the right oil for where you drive, as well as making sure that you’re not due for an oil change. If you are, we can help out.
