The Hackers Are Coming! What You Can Do To Protect Your Vehicle

Our cars are becoming more and more like mobile computers, complete with infotainment systems, automated driver assistance, and keyless ignitions. Even though these features have many benefits, there are also downfalls, including hackers utilizing these features to gain access to your vehicle.  The hackers may be coming, but there are several ways you can protect your vehicle. Take a look:  Make sure your software is updated. Just like how we need to make sure our mobile devices are updated regularly, we need to make sure our cars remain updated as well.  Keep in contact with your manufacturer for any news about any security updates or recalls.  Guard your WiFi password. It may be surprising to know that many people leave their passwords out in the open, such as in their glove compartments, center console, or cupholder.  When you aren’t using your WiFi or Bluetooth, make sure to turn it off. Hackers can exploit these connections, even when your vehic ... read more

Spring Cleaning for your Vehicle

Spring Cleaning for your Vehicle

Let’s shake off that winter chill with some spring cleaning! This term is not solely meant for your home, but it can be applied to your vehicle, both inside and out. The team at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission wants your car to be ready for both spring and summer, and that all starts with a little spring cleaning.  Here a few areas that need attention after winter:  Tires: Winter can affect the air in your tires, causing them both to expand and contract, which will, in turn, change the air pressure. Once the weather begins to warm up, it is essential to examine the air pressure to ensure it is at the appropriate levels. It may also be a good idea to rotate your tires to ensure there hasn’t been any damage from the snow or road salt.  Fluids: The colder temperatures of winter tend to put a little extra stress on your engine, which means now is the perfect time to ensure each fluid in your engine is the right level.
