It’s September, and there are so many exciting things going on! School is back in session. Business is picking up again. The weather is starting to change, and people who love the outdoors are cramming in as many road trips as possible.

A lot of people are excited to start heading into the mountains for ski season. Mountain road trips are quite demanding on your vehicles, and you need to make sure your vehicle is ready for the drive. Mountain road trips can be rough on your clutch, your transmission, your brakes, your suspension, and your tires. The more remote your mountain destination, the more rugged the terrain will be. 

You don’t want to risk a breakdown in the middle of no cellular service, do you? We have a couple of solutions that should prevent this from happening.

Solution #1:

If your mountain road trip is coming up soon, do yourself a favor and bring your vehicle to Foreign Autohaus in Folsom before you head for the hills. We will be happy to do a full visual inspection and report any issues we see. Our goal is to give you all the information you need so you can decide what to repair and how soon to repair it. 

Solution #2:

If you’ve always wanted to learn more about your car, we want to share our knowledge with you. We plan to host a special event and we hope you will accept our invitation to join us. We will soon be holding a Car Fundamentals Class, and we’ll let you know when we get enough requests to host this event. This Car Fundamentals Class will be free to the public and it’s perfect for new drivers, people who want to know about cars, and basic repair knowledge.

If you’d like us to service your vehicle AND attend our Car Fundamentals Class, that’s terrific! Or, if you can only take advantage of one solution, that’s fine with us, too. Schedule an appointment or give us a call if you have any questions for our team. Foreign Autohaus is conveniently located at 301 Blue Ravine Rd., Folsom, CA 95630. We look forward to seeing you soon.
