How Season Changes Affect Your Car

If you live in a state that has drastic season changes then you’re familiar with how road conditions can change every few months.  It’s an inconvenience we’ve just learned to adapt to.  The biggest change of course is potholes, which are most prevalent in the spring or early summer.

Potholes, if you’re unfamiliar, are craters that appear in the roads and can cause significant damage to a vehicle’s tires, wheels, steering components and in some cases, encountering a pothole can produce minor body damage.  Potholes form when moisture seeps into the ground during cold weather.  When the ground freezes and expands, the asphalt rises.  The wear and tear from traffic deteriorates the roads, and when the ground thaws again, the affected areas of road collapses into a pothole.

Potholes are dangerous because they can cause accidents and vehicle damage, and one unfortunate encounter with this menacing phenomenon can be enough for your wheels to become misaligned at the very least.  For this reason, it’s a good idea to get your alignment checked in the spring.

Vehicle misalignment can cause many issues, from handling problems to irregular tire wear.  When you also consider the fact that your vehicle’s alignment can gradually change over time due to normal wear, getting your front-end checked is simply a facet of routine auto maintenance.
