Best Way to Prevent Your Toyota or Vehicle’s Battery from Dying When You Aren’t Driving Often

It is an understatement when we say that we are driving less due to the encouragement of staying at home and social distancing. While this saves money in many ways (such as gas), it is important that you keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. It is important to run your Toyota or Honda vehicle regularly to ensure that the battery doesn’t die from sitting for too long, but how often should you be doing it?

Vehicle Exhaust and Muffler Repairs in Lima, OH

Here at White’s Automotive, some of our customers love having a loud exhaust on their Toyota or Honda vehicle. However, many other folks prefer a quiet exhaust system. Over the course of ownership, your Toyota or Honda vehicle’s exhaust system will wear out (typically three to four years depending on how much snow and salt comes into contact with your vehicle) and it will need to be replaced. 

Luckily, we are here to help you out! Here at White’s Automotive, we offer more than just a fantastic selection of vehicles from your favorite brands. We are also here to help you take care of it so you can enjoy it for many years to come. This is all thanks to our in-house service center that has all the tools needed for maintenance and repairs big and small. Our technicians are specially trained to know the architecture and personality of each Toyota and Honda vehicle to ensure fast and high-quality service so that you can get back out on the road as soon as possible. 

When you bring your Toyota or Honda vehicle to us for an exhaust and muffler repair, our technicians will take a look at the system to see if you will be okay with some welding, and if a full replacement needs to be done, our technicians will get all the parts needed from our full supply of Toyota and Honda-certified parts. That means you won’t need to worry about shopping at an overwhelming and overpriced chain auto parts store! 

To learn more about exhaust and muffler repairs for your Toyota or Honda vehicle, please contact us to schedule an appointment or visit us here at White’s Automotive! Thanks and we look forward to helping you keep your vehicle happy and healthy!

Ways to Protect Your Garage Floor from Vehicle Fluid Leaks

Have you noticed that your vehicle starting to leak? While we recommend that you come to the in-house service center here at Allan Nott and have it repaired, we understand that life can be hectic and you might not be overly worried if it is just a drip (but if it is brake fluid, tow your vehicle to us ASAP).
