We have been happy with our The HomePlow, By Meyer​ . We know it is built for residential use but we have been abusing it for 4 years and we have to recommend this one for small SUV's. I get asked all the time how well it work on a Toyota FJ Cruiser​ , it works GREAT!.. I do put about 150 lbs of salt in the back to a little extra traction so driving down the road with the plow is no problem.

Are you buying a “flood car”? If you’re in the market for a new vehicle beware of “flood cars,” especially following the devastating hurricanes in Texas, Florida, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. We saw this in 2008.

Flood cars are vehicles that have been salvaged from disaster areas, which are cleaned up, auctioned, and resold to often unsuspecting consumers across the United States. And in some cases, these cars have clean CarFaxes that don’t even have information about the flood water damage in the vehicle, making it difficult for buyers to make an informed decision.

Goodyear Tire makes many different kinds of tires. If you are looking for an all-season tire that’s comfortable on the road? Then take a look at Goodyear’s Assurance ComforTred Touring tire.

The tire is all-season, so it holds up in a range of weather conditions; even light snow – and is built with comfort in mind.

“It’s actually a very comfortable tire – it offers 20% more cushion for your typical passenger car,” said Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire owner Scott Whitling.

The Goodyear Assurance Comfortred absorbent rubber layer helps to reduce road vibration. The symmetric tread design not only enhances the traction of the tire, but helps to reduce road noise. This helps to make your drive more smooth and comfortable.

Not only do you get the powerful traction on wet surfaces that the Assurance line offers. These tires also have ComfortEdge sidewalls that allow for more comfortable handling.

The Assurance ComforTred Touring also has a polyester cord body and twin steel belts. This enhances the durability and extends the life of the tire.

Steve’s Auto is proud to be a Goodyear tire dealer, and we carry a full range of Goodyear tires in stock.

We offer tire alignment services, and our team is happy to help you select the product that’s right for you and your vehicle.

The serpentine belt is aptly named since it snakes around under your hood. It may lack its namesake's fangs, but it sure packs a wallop when it breaks.

The serpentine belt powers a lot of engine systems. It runs the alternator, which charges the battery; the water pump (on some vehicles), which cools the engine; the air conditioning, which cools the driver and passengers; and the power steering pump, which allows for easier steering. When the belt breaks, all of these systems shut down.

Okay, so maybe you can live without air conditioning and power steering for a while, but your battery can't live very long without an alternator, and when the cooling system goes down, your vehicle engine will overheat. That's why Woodbridge drivers should never wait to get a serpentine belt replaced.

Serpentine belts are fairly inexpensive compared to the cost of an overheated vehicle engine, a tow truck, time lost on the road, inconvenience, and the potential safety consequences of being stranded.

Good car care means never putting off preventive maintenance, ask our service advisers to have one of our technicians check under your hood and give that serpentine belt a quick look-over.

A cabin air filter is a filter located either behind the glove compartment, under the hood or under the dashboard, depending on your vehicle, and is designed to remove dust, pollen, and other airborne contaminants from the inside of your vehicle.

The cabin air filter will filter air that comes through the vehicle’s HVAC system to make the air cleaner for you. This can be a lifesaver if you’re stuck in airs with lots of traffic or pollution, or if you have allergies. For those suffering from seasonal allergies, keeping your cabin air filter clean can make a big difference.

Article about battery cable corrosion and care

The battery is one of the most important parts of your vehicle – it gets your vehicle started – and like with all parts of your vehicle, you need to do your best to maintain and care for it. If you don’t, you run the risk of corroding your battery, and ending up on the side of the road.

This week we donated a manual transmission Honda CR-V to Northern Virginia Community College’s automotive program in Manassas Virginia.

“This donation from Steve’s Automotive will greatly enhance our automotive program because it’s hard to get vehicles with manual transmissions,” said NVCC Automotive Instructor Gary Phares.
