Yucky weather is no reason to neglect car care - oil change, brake and tire checkups - in Metairie-New Orleans.
The whole idea behind Mardi Gras is that it’s the last fling before the austere days of Lent. Well, yeah, maybe for other people, but this is Metairie-New Orleans and there’s still plenty to do – from this weekend’s Leprecrawl fundraiser to the Los Islenos Fiesta in St. Bernard to the slightly farther afield antique and art fair in Ponchatoula.
While you’re trying to figure out how to stuff all that, and more, into your weekend, don’t forget about your car. Remember, it’s your partner in these adventures and it needs care, too. And lots of times, especially in winter, it’s easy to neglect things. But that’s not wise. Moneysupermarket.com in the UK reminds us that winter conditions can be “just as tough on our cars as they are on us” and that the way to avoid breakdowns is to be proactive. Proactive means getting that regular maintenance done. Those oil changes. Those fluid levels. Those brake checks. The evaluation of tire wear and making sure your tire pressure is just right.
Of course, the easy way is to get someone else to do those things. Someone like the car care experts at Twin Tire and Auto Care. Twin Tire is locally owned and has been the trusted shop for oil changes, brake repair, tires and other auto repair in Metairie-New Orleans since 1973. Twin Tire has three locations to serve cars and light trucks – Harvey, Hammond and Marrero. We also have a location in Harahan to service heavy commercial trucks.
