How to Maintain Your Vehicle for Flooded Streets in Phoenix

Believe it or not, wet weather can hit without warning if you live in Phoenix. Take a look at these last couple weeks – we’re already getting a solid amount of rain in Phoenix and we’re only just starting to creep up on Spring.

If, like many, you live in a suburban part of town, such as Sun City, Paradise Valley, east Mesa or Apache Junction, or even Cave Creek, it can not only cause you serious delay in getting home when an empty wash is transformed into a raging flash flood, it can pose a serious hazard.

At the Auto Shop, we always want our customers to stay in the loop when it comes to complete car care and vehicle maintenance in Phoenix. From routine oil change and lube services, to fleet maintenance and more, it’s just one of the many reasons why we’re one of the best mechanics in Phoenix!

Keep your tires rotated and inflated

This one’s easy. But did you know that simply by having your tires rotated on schedule, you can reduce uneven wear, which can decrease the chance of you potentially going through a hydroplane or losing control of your car when it rains in Phoenix?

At the Auto Shop we can take care of this just as quick is we can knock out an oil change, and will inspect your tires for proper wear in case any underlying suspension issues or more could be the cause.

Know the number of your roadside assistance or preferred towing company

If you have roadside assistance on your insurance policy, or someday need a towing company, this is a good thing to know. If you’re really in a jam, even if your engine is flooded or your car has been submerged, we can always provide a tow in order to take a look.

Keep a roadside emergency kit in your car, no matter the time of year

One of these could include an air pump, first aid kit, water, signal flares, or snacks, along with anything else you might need to track down help if you or your family became stranded by floodwaters that you might not be able to navigate in your car.

Of course, these are only precautionary measures. Having been in Phoenix since 1979, it’s safe to say that we’ve seen all kinds of weather in the Valley of the Sun. Give us a call today at (602) 256-6164 to find out how we handle auto repair in Phoenix today!
