Hey GREENWOOD VILLAGE Drivers; What Is the Most Distracting Food?

Hey GREENWOOD VILLAGE Drivers; What Is the Most Distracting Food?

So what is the most distracting food to have in the car while driving around GREENWOOD VILLAGE?Is it: A Hamburger; Coffee; A Soft Drink, or Gummy Bears? Well, you may be surprised to learn that all but the gummy bears are in the top ten most distracting foods when you are driving. But if you chose 'coffee,' then give yourself an extra two points.  Coffee is the number one food distraction for drivers in GREENWOOD VILLAGE and around the country.Food distractions cause 25 percent of all car accidents; over a million and a half each year!You'll notice that all of the top ten distracting food items are messy. Messy foods are the types of food you might spill (very distracting!), then try to clean up (a safe-driving impossibility!). If you gotta eat on the run, take five-then drive. You'll thank yourself later for two reasons: one, that you can actually relax for just a moment in our fast-paced world, and two, you won't have to ... read more

Fuel Saving Tip: Tire Pressure Saves Fuel in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Fuel Saving Tip: Tire Pressure Saves Fuel in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Underinflated tires waste gas for lots of folks in the GREENWOOD VILLAGE area. Think how hard it is to walk in sand – you just have to work harder because of the resistance. When your tires don't have enough air in them, their rolling resistance is dramatically increased and it simply takes more gas to get from here to there.Always check your tire pressure when you gas up at one of our local GREENWOOD VILLAGE service stations. If they're low – even just a little bit – bring them up to proper pressure. There's a sticker on the inside of your driver's door that gives the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure.And don't rely on your tire pressure monitoring system to alert you to when you need more air. The TPMS system is set to warn you when pressure drops 20 percent below recommendations. That's severely underinflated and you needed more air a long time ago. And if you have a slow leak – get it fixed right away at Antero Auto ... read more

Clean Air for Your Engine: Engine Air Filters In GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Clean Air for Your Engine: Engine Air Filters In GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Every GREENWOOD VILLAGE car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told that their engine air filter's dirty. Here's what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your vehicle owner's manual will have a recommendation of when the filter should be replaced. Now, most air filters purchased in GREENWOOD VILLAGE don't cost a lot to replace. It's just that CO people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Antero Auto & Truck Services can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in GREENWOOD VILLAGE. Think about a dirty furnace filter in your GREENWOOD VILLAGE home. When it's all clogged up, enough clean air can't get through. In your vehicle, that means that your engine can't get as much air as it needs to burn the fuel efficiently. So it makes do with less air and has to use more gas to move your vehicle around GREENWOOD VILLAGE roads ... read more

Distracted Driving

When asked, most people think they are good at multi-tasking. Scientific studies, however, reveal that only around 2% of the population can truly demonstrate the capacity to effectively multi-task. For the rest of us who are not so biologically wired, no amount of practice can increase our effectiveness at multi-tasking. Turns out, multi-tasking is almost a superpower. Think of fighter pilots: capable of maintaining their orientation in three dimensional space and performing specific and highly complicated functions while accessing life threatening situations and coming up with an appropriate response. Admit it – you can’t do that. Yet when it comes to driving, we seem to think we are very capable of safely operating a motor vehicle with myriad distractions. 77% of young adults feel somewhat confident that they can safely text and drive while 55% claim it’s easy to text and drive. Can they possibly be right? Let’s look at some statistics. Nearly 23% of all accid ... read more

Talk to Antero Auto & Truck Services About New Shoes for Your Vehicle

Custom wheels are one way that GREENWOOD VILLAGE folks express themselves and personalize their vehicle. But they aren't as cheap and easy as sticking decals on your back window. There are several factors that need to be considered, including cost, the fit of the wheel, modifications that will have to be made to the vehicle, how the new wheels and tires will affect the operation of the vehicle, your driving habits and, of course, the style of the wheels.

When considering custom wheels, you should first carefully consider your budget. Some wheels may require adjustments to your vehicle suspension system, brakes, or traction systems.

Servicing High Mileage Vehicles at Antero Auto & Truck Services

Servicing High Mileage Vehicles at Antero Auto & Truck Services

The price of gas and the uncertain economy are both causing CO residents to review their finances. More and more GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers are opting to keep their vehicles longer and put off purchasing a newer car. It is estimated that two-thirds of the vehicles on the roads of North America today have over 75,000 miles/120,000 km on them. And the average age of vehicles is now over eleven years. That translates to some car care issues that many GREENWOOD VILLAGE men and women haven't dealt with in the past. Older vehicles simply have different maintenance requirements than newer ones. Learning those requirements presents a challenge for people in GREENWOOD VILLAGE because many owner's manuals only publish maintenance schedules up to 60,000 or 90,000 miles (96,000 or 145,000 km). Vehicle owners have to keep good records and be more involved in planning preventive maintenance if they want to keep their vehicles on the road. First of all, any service in your owner's ma ... read more

Keep Your Cool in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Keep Your Cool in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers rely on their vehicle's coolant system to keep their engine cool. Coolant (also called antifreeze) mixed with water flows through your vehicle engine and absorbs heat. The mixture then flows out to the radiator where it's cooled by air flowing over the radiator. From there the coolant/water mix circulates back through the engine to absorb more heat.There's a reason we mix coolant and water. Water alone actually does a good job transferring heat from the engine. The problem is that water boils at a temperature that's easily reached inside your vehicle's engine, so it can turn to steam which does not conduct heat as well and is harder to contain.Also, if it's freezing outside in GREENWOOD VILLAGE, the water in your engine could freeze while your vehicle is sitting out in the CO cold.So, if you remember your high school chemistry, you'll know that a mixture has both a higher boiling point and a lower freezin ... read more
