It makes sense that a car that is rarely driven will last longer, right? It may seem counterintuitive, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Vehicles are meant to be driven, and various issues can arise if they aren’t stored properly or driven fairly regularly. If you have a car, truck, or SUV that you only drive occasionally, in the summer, to car shows, etc., this one is for you. Here’s what you need to know, from Nationwide Transmission in Flagstaff, AZ.

If you drive a vehicle with more than a few miles on it, there’s a good chance you’ve noticed an occasional drip underneath it that leaves spots wherever you park. Identifying what is leaking from your car will help you determine whether or not it’s a cause for concern, and what to do about it.

There are seven liquids a car can possibly drip: oil, gas, brake fluid, transmission fluid, gear oil, water, and coolant. How do you tell the difference? This article aims to help your know-how.

Adam and his staff are amazing!! My wife and I were traveling from Indiana to California when the transfer case in my truck had a catastrophic failure. They diagnosed the problem and got a transfer case the next day and got us back on the road. They even gave us a ride back to our hotel. I can’t say it enough how grateful we are. I highly recommend their shop if you ever have the kind of misfortune we had.
