This winter the roads are getting so beat up, potholes everywhere. Be careful as you can ruin a tire or rim or both.
I find it very useful to save the receipts of repair records. It is a quick and easy way to reference what has been done on the car for maintenance regardless if it was at the dealer or elsewhere. Saves a phone call too. Plus, whoever buys the car next will want that history.

My Mom used to half tease me about this when I was a kid, i would dive into the task and wonder why I was failing! Simple things like tire pressure sensor monitors…save yourself some time and read the manual for the how-to’s.
