They also may be referred to as front-wheel, rear-wheel and all-wheel drive.  HOW CAN I TELL WHICH TYPE OF DRIVETRAIN MY VEHICLE HAS?  As easy as this sounds you may look in your owner's manual and it should have it stated in there.

Labor Day Travel Check List

Labor Day Travel Check List

As Labor Day is one of the most traveled holiday, make sure your vehicle is ready for the road. Before you hit the road please keep in mind to check things like fluids, wipers, hoses, and belts. Make sure your vehicle has the correct amount of engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and power steering fluid. Your vehicle's battery should also be checked. Heat evaporates battery fluid which can speed up corrosion. The weather is also still warmer so be sure that the A/C is working up to the standards. Lastly, check tire pressure and all lights to make sure they are all working properly. If you have any questions about items stated above please give us a call and we will be happy to assist you
