It’s Too Doggone Hot!

Is it too hot to leave your dog in the car today? Every year, dogs suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car – even for “just a minute” – while they run an errand. Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs. On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 to 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than ten minutes! Cracking a window does not make that much of a difference and on hot days, cars parked in the shade can still be unsafe. What to do? It’s best to leave your pet at home while running errands during hot weather. If you absolutely must leave your pet in a car, please do the following; Open windows and vents as wide as possible without providing an escape route or, put your pet in a well- ventilated cage inside the car and open the windows fully.

Just because it is blue, doesn’t mean it won’t freeze

When you get your car ready for winter dont forget the windshield washer fluid. Last year one of our customers filled his reservoir with water over the summer and in December his windshield washer would not work. We found that the water froze and he had a huge ice cube stuck in his reservoir. It took many hours to defrost the ice cube, we put hot water in the top to melt it down and suctioned out the melted water. It was a very slow process. Once it was emptied and the correct fluid was put into the system his wipers worked great. Obviously this was a costly mistake for this customer. At Haglin Automotive every time your car comes in for service we top off all of your fluids including windshield washer fluid

Buyer beware

We just got an Isuzu in this week for a “steering on it’s own” complaint. She just purchased the vehicle a couple of months ago and did not have it inspected by a third party. After our inspection we found that the rear trailing arms had completely broken away from the frame and that the rear quarter of the frame was completely rusted out. This car is unsafe to be on the road. She is now fighting with the dealership to get some kind of help. Remember, when you buy a used vehicle it is “As Is”. So make sure to have a pre-purchase inspection done, they usually run around $100 and will help you make a better deal and keep you from having major issues
