You love your dog and want to spend as much time with them as you can. So, you may want to bring them along with you on short drives or road trips. While this can be fun for both you and your dog, it can also be dangerous if mistakes are made.
Before you hit the road with your dog for your next big -or small- adventure, consider these seven tips:
Restrain Your Dog Properly
When you are driving you should not allow your dog to roam about the vehicle. Allowing your dog to move about the car when you are driving can be a distraction to you on the road and result in an accident that could harm your dog and possibly yourself. You use a seat belt to harness yourself into the vehicle and help prevent injury in an accident and you should do the same for your dog. If you plan on traveling with your dog at all then you should purchase a seatbelt that is designed for dogs or put them in a crate that is secured to the seat. You will want to make sure that the seatbelt or crate is used properly to prevent injuries. Make sure you purchase the right size and fit, and that you learn how to secure the dog properly per the instructions given to you.
Keep the Dog Secured in the Back
Like small children, your dog is safer when secured in the back of the vehicle. You may enjoy your dog’s company in the front, but if an airbag should deploy it could be fatal for your dog.
Avoid Rolling Down the Windows
We shouldn’t put our limbs and our heads out of the vehicle when driving, especially at high speeds, to avoid injury from debris on the roadway; and the same goes for your dog. We know many dogs find pure joy in this, but it is not worth the risk of injury. If you must roll down the windows, only crack them enough to let in fresh air and not allow the dog to put their head out the window.
Keep Harmful Items Out of Reach
The last thing you want to have happen when you are driving with your dog is for them to get sick. Be mindful of the items you keep within their reach in the vehicle. Items commonly found in cars that can be harmful to your dog includes gum, air fresheners, cleaning products, antifreeze, and engine oil.
Be Mindful of the Temperature
As an Arizona resident you have probably heard of the dangers of leaving your dog in a hot car, but with how serious the outcome of doing so can be, it bears repeating. Your dog should never be left in the car when the weather is hot or too cold. Your dog is extremely susceptible to heatstroke or hypothermia and frostbite- which could be deadly. If you must stop somewhere, make sure you can bring your dog with you.
Don’t Put Your Dog in an Open Truck Bed
Long ago it was common for people to drive with both other humans and dogs in the bed of their truck. This is never a good idea, even if you try and secure them in the bed. Even pets that have a harness or leash of some kind can attempt to jump out of the vehicle or be jolted about which could result in life-threatening injury. Also, keeping them in the bed exposes them to harm from debris and the elements.
Remember that Traveling May Be Stressful for Them Too
While many dogs find car rides enjoyable, just as many can find the ride to be stressful. The noise and motion are not something they are used to and could induce anxiety in some. If you have them in a crate, consider covering it and keeping the interior environment as calm and peaceful as you can. Also, talk to your vet if your dog suffers from anxiety and/or motion sickness for tips on how to calm them when traveling.

You know that properly maintained tires are vital to the safe operation of your vehicle, but we bet you didn’t know the following 11 tire facts.
Early tires were white. Manufacturers added zinc oxide to the rubber for strength which had the side effect of turning them white.
In the early 1900s, tire color changed to black. In the early 1900s carbon black was added to the tires to increase tire durability and longevity.
White wall tires were first made in 1914. A whitewall tire is created when a carbon black tread is combined with a zinc white sidewall.
Original whitewalls were on both sides of the tire. Early cars had open fenders and pedestrians were able to see both sides of the tire when they drove by.
Run-flat tires can drive for a time without air. Run-flat tires will go around another 100 miles after losing tire pressure. They are designed to go around 50 miles when driving at 50mph, but if you drive at slower speeds you can get many more miles out of them. BMW uses the most run-flat tires.
Used tires produce a lot of waste. Every year there are more than 250 million used tires discarded. To help combat this problem, there are recycling programs that will melt the tire down to be used in asphalt. The tires may also be shredded and used in garden mulch. Sometimes new tires are made from the old. There are also crafty ways to recycle old tires like making them into planters, dog beds, swings, and other playground equipment.
Most new cars don’t come with a spare tire. Many vehicle manufacturers, in an attempt to shed weight, stopped putting spare tires in new cars. Instead, they sell them with a patch kit and a can of compressed air.
Michelin is currently working on a new tire known as the “tweel.” It is described as an airless wheel and tire that comes in one piece. They hope to offer the reality of no flat tires and replaceable tread.
Lego is the leading tire manufacturer. They produce over 306 million mini tires a year.
The modern tire contains over 200 materials. The common materials in a tire include Kevlar, nylon, rubber, and steel, yet there is a lot more that goes into the manufacturing of a tire. They consist of metals like titanium and cobalt to help the compound bond to the steel belts. Silica and saline are also used to help enhance performance. Citrus oil and other “green” materials are also used.
You can find the World’s Largest Tire in Michigan. It is 80-feet-tall and weighs 12-ton and was originally used as a Ferris wheel at the 1964-65 New York’s World Fair. It was later moved to Allen Park in 1966.
We hope you found these facts about tires interesting! And remember, if you have any concerns with your vehicle you can call the automotive repair experts at Virginia Auto Service. Call 602.266.0200 or schedule an appointment online.
Arizona is a large state with a lot of natural, untouched land in and between its cities. As such, there will likely come a time when Arizona drivers find themselves on the road with nothing but nature surrounding them. While this presents us with some of the most scenic drives in the country, it can also present a problem. When you are surrounded by nothing but nature, the likelihood of encountering a deer or other animal crossing the road increases.
Here are five tips on how you can drive safely and avoid colliding with our wild animal friends and what to do if it happens:
1. Remain alert. In other words, pay attention. Seems simple enough, yet you’d be surprised how often drivers fail to do just that. Stay off your phone and avoid other distractions. Don’t let a seemingly empty highway fool you into a false sense of security. Animals can make their way onto the road in front of your vehicle at any instant. In places where tree and grasses are thicker, they may seem to appear out of thin air with no warning.
2. Make sure you can see well at night. Most animals seem to be more active at dawn, dusk, and in the nighttime- when visibility is the most compromised for motorists. Make sure your vehicle’s windshield has no cracks that obstruct your view and that it is clean. Use your high beams to help watch for the glow of animal eyes and movement. Learn more about safe night driving practices in our blog post 15 Tips for Driving Safely at Night.
3. Take it slow. After dark, don’t drive over 70 miles per hour. When you do, you are out driving your headlights, which leaves you no reaction time if there is an obstacle in the road. In both the day and night, consider driving no faster than (or maybe slightly under) the posted speed limits, especially in areas where signs warning of animal crossing activity are posted. Slowing down may cause you to reach your destinations a little later, but that is far less inconvenient than the aftermath of a high-speed crash with an animal.
4. When the inevitable occurs. Regardless of how well prepared you are, there may come a time when you simply cannot avoid hitting the animal. If you find yourself in this situation, remain in your lane and, with a firm grip on your steering wheel, push down firmly on your brake pedal. Thankfully, most modern vehicles come with anti-lock brakes which will help you to stop quickly and help you maintain steering control. If you have the time, lay on your horn. Many animals find themselves in a headlight induced trance (you’ve heard the term “a deer in headlights”). Blasting your horn may break the trance in enough time to allow the animal to run out of harm’s way. Do not swerve to avoid the animal. Doing so could result in a more dangerous collision with another vehicle, a rock wall, or even a ditch or cliff of some sort- and could cause you to lose control of your vehicle. No one wants to hit an animal, but your safety and the safety of your passengers and other motorists must come first.
5. After the collision. For smaller animals like skunk, rabbits, or possibly fox or coyote, your vehicle will likely be fine with no problems other than shaken nerves. However, striking large animals like deer and elk may cause some severe vehicle damage and possible injury to occupants of the vehicle. If you collide with an animal and it is injured but not dead, it can become dangerous. Stay in your vehicle away from the animal and call the authorities for assistance. They will help take care of the animal in the safest and most humane way possible, as well as help you with any needs you may have. They will also file an incident report that you will need for insurance purposes.
A little preparedness and caution will help you get where you are going safely while protecting the lives of the creatures who call the Arizona wilderness home.

Potholes are pesky little road hazards that can result in anything from a simple jolt to a blown tire. The pothole is the sworn enemy of your tires, and unfortunately, they won’t be going away anytime soon. If you’ve driven a vehicle, chances are you’ve encountered one at one point or another. Most of the time, once you see the pothole, it is too late to avoid it.
Potholes are holes of various shapes and sizes that appear in the roadway. Potholes are formed by the expansion and contraction of ground water under the pavement. If the groundwater has a chance to swell or freeze, it will expand taking up more room under the pavement. As such, the pavement will expand and possibly crack, weakening it. Then once the water recedes, the pavement will contract, and gaps/voids will be made on the surface underneath the pavement. Each time this happens the pavement becomes weaker. As the heavy weight of vehicles passes over these weak spots in the road they break down and the pavement becomes displaced creating a pothole.
There are many potential forms of damage that a pothole can cause to your vehicle, including:
• Tire damage, puncture or wear
• Damaged wheel rims
• Early wear on shocks and struts
• Damage to the suspension
• Misalignment of the steering system
• Damage to the exhaust system
• Engine damage
Four tips to avoid serious damage to your vehicle on a pothole:
Pay attention. The best way to protect your vehicle from pothole damage is simply to pay attention to the road before you. If you can spot them early enough you have a better chance of avoiding them. Try and avoid hitting them by swerving around them if its safe to do so. This way you can avoid all potential damage. You should leave enough space between you and the vehicles in front of you on the road so that you are better able to see the road ahead and give yourself more time to avoid them.
Be aware of water-filled potholes. It is especially important to watch for potholes that are filled with water. Water-filled potholes can be exceptionally dangerous because you have no way of knowing their depth. If you are driving on a road that is worn and damaged, you need to drive slower to minimize the damage to your vehicle when you hit a pothole.
Don’t slam on the brakes. At some point, no matter how careful you are, you will likely hit a pothole. When you do, it is important that you don’t slam on your brakes. When you hit the brakes your vehicle tilts forward putting more stress on the front suspension- the first part of the vehicle that hits the pothole. Slamming on your brakes will cause more damage to the vehicle because of the extra force.
Inspect your vehicle if you experience a considerable jolt. If you hit a pothole that is particularly jarring, you shouldn’t hesitate to immediately check for a flat tire. If your vehicle is still drivable, by all means, get on your way. However, you should pay close attention to your vehicle as all problems don’t present themselves right away. At some point, you should recheck your tires for bulges, uneven wear and other sorts of visible damage. These are usually the first signs of damage caused by a pothole. You should also pay attention to any new vibrations or the car pulling strongly in either direction. This is a sign that the pothole threw your vehicle out of alignment or damaged your steering system. If you continue to drive with such problems they could wind up causing further damage and become even more expensive to repair, so have your vehicle taken care of as soon as you notice any sign of trouble.
If you have hit a pothole you can bring your vehicle to Virginia Auto Service and we will assess the damage and get it back on the road in no time. Call us at 602-266-0200 or schedule your next appointment online.
We always stress how important regular and proper maintenance is to the safety and longevity of your vehicle. However, over time, vehicle technologies have changed creating many myths and misconceptions about what this care should be.
Here are six common auto maintenance myths:
Myth 1: You can use dish soap or laundry detergent to wash your vehicle.
Fact: You should use soaps that are specifically designed to wash cars or bring your vehicle to a professional car wash. Household cleaning soaps will strip away your wax finish and cause your paint to fade or crack and peel.
Myth 2: Instead of using the AC, roll your windows down for optimal fuel efficiency.
Fact: Using the AC does cause your vehicle to use fuel faster than not using the AC. However, rolling down your windows isn’t really any better. When the windows are rolled down it increases wind resistance, counteracting the aerodynamic design of your vehicle. While overcoming this additional resistance, your vehicle will consume additional fuel that is almost the same as if your AC were on.
Myth 3: All vehicle’s need an oil change every 3,000 miles.
Fact: Older vehicles did require more frequent oil changes, usually at around every 3,000 miles. However, as engine technology has changed, this is no longer the rule. Some newer vehicles can go as long as 5,000 to 7,500 miles before an oil change is necessary. While you won’t harm your vehicle with more frequent changes, you can save yourself time and money if you are able to go longer between changes. The mileage recommendations for your specific vehicle model can be found in your owner’s manual.
Myth 4: Your tire pressure needs to match the PSI recommendation on its sidewall.
Fact: You should not fill your tire to the PSI number that is on the tire. This number is the maximum pressure that the tire can hold for safe driving. It is not the recommended number for best handling, fuel efficiency, or comfort. Usually, the ideal PSI for your vehicle can be found in your glove box, on a doorjamb sticker, or on the fuel-filler door. It can also be found in your owner’s manual. Underinflated or overinflated tires can cause damage to your tire, shortening its life dramatically. You should check your tire pressure at least once a month. When you check, make sure the tires are cool and have not recently driven.
Myth 5: Using premium fuel in any vehicle will improve how it operates.
Fact: If your vehicle’s owner’s manual doesn’t specifically state that you should be using premium fuel, then doing so won’t make a difference in how your vehicle performs. Using premium fuel in a vehicle that is designed for standard isn’t harmful, but why waste the extra money if it’s not necessary to do so? Remember, if your manual explicitly states that you need to use high-octane gas, then that is what you will have to do. Using standard fuel in a car that requires premium fuel can cause damage to the engine.
Myth 6: To keep your warranty active, maintenance must be performed at the dealership.
Fact: For your warranty to remain active you need to follow the maintenance schedule laid out in your owner’s manual. This maintenance can be done by your favorite local auto shop, it does not have to be performed at the dealership.

Did you know that, if you listen, your vehicle can tell you quite a bit? Your car will often communicate to you that it has a problem in the form of squeals, rattles, and knocks. You drive your vehicle the most and you know the sounds it usually makes, so when you hear something new, pay attention. These vehicle grumbles are often the first sign that something is going wrong.
This is a list of five strange noises your vehicle may make, and what could be causing them:
Often, a squealing heard coming from under the hood of your vehicle that fluctuates based on speed, indicates a loose belt or two. When loose or showing signs of wear, power steering belts will make a shrill squealing noise. Fan and air conditioning belts will make a similar sound. If you hear a loud squealing, you should have your belts inspected right away. A power steering belt can be both dangerous and create serious damage if it breaks while you are driving.
If you hear a high-pitched screeching noise when you attempt to stop your vehicle, it means that it is time to have your brakes inspected. Brake pads are made with indicators on them that create the screeching noise when the pads are worn down too low and need replacing. If you pay attention to this noise as soon as it begins to present itself, the only thing you will have to change is the brake pads. If you delay, you will increase your chances of causing further damage to the vehicle resulting in more expensive repairs.
If you are hearing low and rhythmic rumbling noises, it indicates that there is a problem with the exhaust system or either of the drive line components. If it is a problem with the exhaust system it could be coming from the converter, exhaust pipe, or muffler. Each of these could become a serious problem and you should not delay in bringing your vehicle in for repairs.
If you hear a recurring knocking or pounding sound, it may mean that there is a problem with your vehicles connecting rod bearings, crankshaft, or transmission. Each of these could be a serious threat to the safety and performance of your vehicle and needs to be taken care of right away.
A clicking sound can indicate a few different things. It might mean that there is a bent or loose fan blade, or that you have a loose wheel cover. It could also indicate that your oil levels are low or one of your valve lifters is stuck. These problems can become serious if not remedied in a timely manner, so if your vehicle is clicking, bring it in as soon as you can.
If you pay attention to the noises your car is making and have them taken care of in a timely manner, you will keep your vehicle running in peak condition, prevent further damage and more expensive repairs, and prolong your vehicle’s road life. So, the next time your vehicle speaks to you, listen closely to what it has to say.
If you are hearing any of the noises listed above, bring your vehicle into the experts at Virginia Auto Service. Call (602) 266-0200 or schedule an appointment online.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that, in any part of the world, there is a motor vehicle accident every 60 seconds. Which pretty much means there are nearly five and a quarter million vehicle accidents each year. When you go by these statistics, it is highly likely that there will be a time when you are involved in an accident. When it is your first auto accident, you may be unsure of just exactly what it is you are supposed to do.
The weeks, and sometimes months, following an auto accident may be very stressful. The following advice will hopefully ease some of the pressure.
The first thing you need to try and do is remain calm. It is easier said than done but take a deep breath or two then proceed with the steps below.
Move to a Safe Area, If You Can
If neither you nor your passengers are seriously injured, and you are able to do so, you should move your vehicle out of the middle of the road. Try to move as far to the side of the road as you possibly can. If you are unable to move your vehicle make sure your hazard lights are on so that other motorists will know that your vehicle will not be moving. Remember, it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident, so don’t leave.
Shut Off Your Vehicle and Get Out
Put your vehicle in park and shut it off. Glance at your surroundings and make sure that it is safe to get out of your vehicle. If the road is clear, get out of the vehicle. Set out flares or safety cones if you have them.
Check Everyone Involved for Injuries
If anyone involved in the accident appears to be injured call 911 right away. Often, pain and injuries do not become evident to a person involved in an accident for hours or even days after an accident once the adrenaline has worn off. So, even mild injuries and symptoms should be looked over by a healthcare professional.
Ask for Police to Come to the Accident Scene
Even in a minor accident, it is a good idea to have a police report for your records. These reports are helpful when dealing with insurance companies and other motorists. Fully cooperate with the officers but watch your language around them and avoid taking blame or blaming others. If they ask you if you are injured say that you are “not sure” rather than no. Let the officers determine the events of the crash objectively based on the evidence in front of them.
Gather Information for Your Records
After an accident, you will want to have as much information as you can. You will want to collect the following information:
• Insurance information of all drivers involved in the accident
• Name, address and phone numbers of every person involved in the accident
• Make, model, and year of all vehicles involved in the accident
• License plate numbers of all vehicles involved in the accident
• Contact information and names of any eyewitnesses
• Location of the accident
• The name and badge number of the responding police officers
• Police report number and a copy of the report
Take Photos at the Scene
Photos are very useful in the insurance claim process. If you have a camera or phone with picture taking abilities don’t hesitate to take photos at the scene. Take pictures of any visible injuries to yourself and/or your passengers, the damage to your vehicle, the accident location, and other people involved in the accident. Be sure to stay out of the way of any police investigation while you take your photographs.
Get Medical Attention
Often, injuries from an accident are not immediately evident. Many people won’t notice pain for a few days. Unless you are 100 percent positive you weren’t injured you should get medical attention either by your family doctor or at an urgent care.
File an Insurance Claim
Call your insurance company and start the claims process. Make sure you have all the information you gathered on hand.
Hold on to All of Your Records
You should hold onto all the following information in a file for your records. The information could come in handy when dealing with insurance companies, and if lawyers become involved. You should keep all the following information:
• All the above information that you gathered at the scene
• All medical reports
• Your claim number
• The name of the person handling your claim
• Any rental car receipts
• Any receipts or records of expenses that you incurred because of the accident
Contact a Lawyer (Optional)
Sometimes dealing with the process of an accident on your own isn’t so bad, others you may want to get help from a lawyer who specializes in this sort of thing. An attorney can protect your rights throughout the process and can help guarantee that no evidence with any value is destroyed. Insurance companies will often want to take a statement immediately after an accident, however, an attorney would advise you to wait until you have received legal advice. Having an attorney help you through the accident aftermath will help to make sure you are paid in full for any damages or injuries you sustained.
We hope you find the above advice helpful should you find yourself needing it. However, we hope even more, that you never do! You can’t control everything that happens on the road around you, but there is one thing that you can control to help keep you and other motorists safe on the road and that is performing regular auto maintenance. Having regular maintenance performed on your vehicle prevents drivability issues, reducing the chances of an accident related to a vehicle malfunction. To keep your vehicle running optimally, bring your vehicle into the experts at Virginia Auto Service. Call us at 602-266-0200 or schedule your next appointment online.
Your vehicle is made of many components that work together to keep it running smoothly. One such component is the fuel pump.
Most people are aware of the existence of the fuel pump, but they don’t give it much thought. However, as the fuel pump plays an important part in ensuring your vehicle operates efficiently, it should not be ignored.
What is the purpose of the fuel pump?
As you know, your engine is on the opposite side of your vehicle than your fuel tank. The fuel pump, which is located either next to or inside of the gas tank, is meant to bring fuel to the engine of your vehicle. Modern vehicles are equipped with an electrical fuel pump which transfers a continuous stream of fuel at the correct pressure and volume from its fuel tank to the fuel injection on its engine. This is what allows the engine to perform properly under various driving conditions and degrees of fuel consumption. If your fuel pump is properly cared for, it can last for the life of your vehicle.
How can you take care of your fuel pump?
As we stated above, your fuel pump is likely to last for the life of your vehicle, so long as it is properly cared for. But how do you take care of a fuel pump? The answer is actually very simple- keep your car fueled up. It is recommended that you never let your fuel level drop lower than a quarter of a tank. The fuel that is in the tank helps to keep the fuel pump cool. If your tank is allowed to get to empty, the fuel pump can overheat. If you continuously allow the tank to get too low the fuel pump will eventually wear out.
Another way to help maintain your fuel pump is to change your fuel filter, which is located in the fuel line, as recommended. You can find specifics on your vehicle in your owner’s manual, but a general recommendation is around every 50,000 miles. The fuel filter helps clean the fuel that goes to the injectors. The less dirt and debris that collects and builds up on your fuel pump, the longer it will last.
How can you tell there is something wrong with the fuel pump?
There are a few things that indicate there may be a problem with your fuel pump including:
- A noise coming from the pump area
- Long engine crank before starting
- Lack of power
- Vehicle fails to start regardless of the motor turning over
Unfortunately, in some cases, there may not be any warning signs. However, if you are performing regular maintenance and keeping your gas tank filled past a quarter of a tank, you shouldn’t have any problems with the fuel pump.
If you are noticing any of the above complications with your vehicle or to schedule regular maintenance, we invite you to schedule an appointment with the experts at Virginia Auto Service. Call us at 602-266-0200 or schedule your next appointment online.
In the automotive industry, there are a lot of different organizations and certifications. The purpose of these is to hold automotive repair professionals to a higher standard. Of these special certifications, the National Institute for Automotive Excellence, or ASE, is considered one of the best.
ASE Certification has been around since 1972. According to the ASE website, they are an “independent, non-profit organization” whose purpose is to certify individual automotive technicians as well as service advisers and not the entire shop. Certification is given after a series of tests, and the skill level and ethics of each individual are observed. To become an ASE Certified location there must be several mechanics and supervisors that are ASE Certified on site. We are proud to say that, here at Virginia Auto Service, most of our automotive repair professionals are ASE Certified.
When you find a shop or technician that is ASE Certified it gives you a little insight into the level of expertise the professionals who work on your vehicle have. The certification offers our customers proof of our knowledge and abilities, allowing you peace of mind when you leave one of your most valuable possessions in our care.
To even qualify for ASE Certification, an automotive tech needs to have at least two years of on-the-job training or one year of on-the-job training and a minimum of a two-year degree in automotive repair. If these qualifications are met, then the technician can take the certification tests. These are not easy, and really test a person’s automotive repair and technology knowledge. In fact, the ASE website states that one in three test-takers will not pass the test on their first try. After a technician is ASE Certified, they are required to retest every five years. This helps to ensure that they are knowledgeable in even the most up-to-date auto repair technologies. There are more than 40 separate tests, which are designed by a panel of automotive repair experts, that focus on different automotive repair specialties. These specialties range from collision repair to school buses and more. It’s easy to see why ASE Certification is a true symbol of excellence in the automotive repair industry.
To learn more about ASE Certification and how it is beneficial to you as the consumer, as well as to us as professionals, you can check out the ASE Certification website here. Or, feel free and ask any of our ASE Certified technicians on your next visit to Virginia Auto Service. It would be our pleasure to expand on what the certification means to you and us.
