Keeping track of maintenance done on your fleet vehicles and commercial trucks is one of the most important aspects of fleet management. At Nott's Automotive in Sarasota, FL, we track maintenance and repairs for a number of reasons. Here’s why:
In the old days, when your headlight burned out you just replaced the entire thing with a new glass bulb. Modern headlights are plastic assemblies, with a bulb inserted through the back. What this means, is that the plastic lens that light shines through never gets replaced, and eventually will begin to oxidize and deteriorate due to time, weather, and heat from your bulb. Today you will learn when it’s time to fix or replace your headlight assemblies, what options you have in doing so, and what the benefits are.
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 Nott's Automotive in Sarasota, FL.
Chances are you don’t pay much attention to your vehicle’s battery until it dies, when you get to perform the dreary dual task of waiting for a jump while simultaneously calling for an appointment to get a new battery fitted. Of course, that’s if you’re sure it’s the battery that’s dead in the first place. The only way to be certain is to take it in to be tested. However, it generally helps to know the health of your vehicle battery prior to finding yourself stranded.
Gauges are your first, and often only, line of defense in catching a major problem before it’s too late. At Nott's Automotive in Sarasota, we know that sometimes a faulty gauge is overlooked when the truck is still running fine and there’s a busy day ahead. However, gauges are extremely important, and are typically easy to repair.
Obviously, your brakes are pretty important. Your brake system is made of many components that all have to work correctly for your brakes to operate seamlessly. If one thing needs to be repaired, the whole system is compromised. Brake pads, rotors, hoses, calipers, and metal lines all play a part in stopping your car. At Nott's Automotive in Sarasota, FL, we’re here to make sure your car, truck, or SUV stops as it should.
The differentials on your Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge diesel pickup are some of the hardest working components on your truck. At Nott's Automotive in Sarasota, our technicians are experts in maintaining, repairing, and replacing differentials, keeping your truck working reliable just as much as you do.
