After this crazy winter, there is an abundance of pot holes out there. Here in NYC it’s particularly bad but I’m going to guess that’s true in many locales. Last night while driving through Manhattan I noticed that cars are not rushing to get through those yellow lights like they normally do and that’s smart. I’m going to consider this post as just a public service reminder…DRIVE SLOW!

In the past couple of weeks we have changed numerous struts, strut mounts, axle shafts, tie rods, etc. I know it’s difficult to avoid some of these, I’ve rammed though many myself. Sometimes you don’t even notice them until you’re right on top of them, but this type of work can be quite costly so let me repeat….DRIVE SLOW!

Honestly, I think I’m just writing this to myself, my son is constantly telling me to, “Slow down, Jeff Gordon!”. So if you’d like to fork over some of your funds to me and my fellow repair shop owners then go for it but otherwise….DRIVE SLOW!
