How to Take Care of Your Car When You’re Driving Less

Vehicle Maintenance When Driving Less | Beloit, WI | Finley Buick GMC

These days, many people in Beloit, Wisconsin, are working from home. The lifestyle has its perks, like saving on gas and spending less time behind the wheel. If you’re one of many whose vehicle is sitting untouched for days or weeks on end, it’s crucial to take note of the important maintenance that your car still needs, even while it’s on hiatus. If you take good care of your car when you’re driving less, you won’t have to worry about getting back up to speed when you need it.

One of the biggest things that you can do to improve vehicle health is to take your ride out for weekly errands or short drives. Regular drives keeps the tires from forming flat spots, ensures that your battery is charged, and keeps the brakes from forming rust.

You should also take care of your gas tank. Maintain at least a half-tank of gas at all times if possible. By driving on a weekly basis and filling up when you can, you can help your vehicle burn off old gas and keep its fuel lines running smooth.

Since the weather is getting cold, you’ll also want to take care of the exterior as much as possible. Even if you’re not planning on driving, go out and scrape the windshield and clear snow off your vehicle after significant snowfall. If possible, park your vehicle in a garage or under a canopy to protect the finish. If that’s not an option, a durable car cover will help improve longevity.

No matter how much you’re driving, you’ll also want to stick to a regular maintenance schedule. The service pros at Finley Buick GMC in Beloit will take care of your preventative maintenance needs, from oil changes and filter replacements to battery, brakes, and beyond. That way, when you wind up driving more regularly, you’ll be able to rely on your vehicle every mile of the way.

Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home

Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home | Finley Buick GMC | Beloit, WI

This Halloween in Beloit, Wisconsin, may not look like it has in years past, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your own scary fun this October. You can make the most of the spookiest time of year with family-friendly Halloween activities you can do in the safety of your own home.

Pumpkin carving

One of the most classic ways to celebrate Halloween at home is carving a jack-o’-lantern. Gather up your gourds of all shapes and sizes and spend an evening with your kids making silly and scary faces. Because pumpkin carving involves sharp tools, you’ll want to supervise the whole time and be cautious with younger kids. If your children are too young, you can do all the cutting for them or even limit the experience to painting pumpkins.

Fright-filled movie night

What would Halloween season be without a midnight movie marathon? Line up your seasonal favorites, both the super-scary and the kid-friendly, and have a night out at the movies in on the couch. You can pop some popcorn, grill hot dogs and hamburgers, or even make caramel apples.

There’s plenty more you can do to take advantage of the Halloween season while it’s still here. Bob for apples, decorate the yard, whatever it takes to enjoy the spookiest month of the year together. From our family at Finley Buick GMC to yours, have a healthy and happy Halloween.

Tips for Traveling with Pets in Beloit

Tips for Traveling with Pets | Finley Buick GMC | Beloit, WI

When you are going on a road trip with your family, you may want to bring your pets so the whole crew can enjoy time together. Whether you are traveling around Wisconsin or taking a trip out of state, these tips for traveling with pets make your journey safer and smarter.

If your pet is a back-seat rider, use a harness attached to the seat buckle or a well-ventilated crate or carrier to keep your pets safe and secure. The crate should allow your pet to sit, stand, and lie down, so make sure the size is large enough to keep your pet comfortable. Secure the crate to avoid sliding and shifting during the drive.

Make sure your pet carries proper identification with updated information. Their tag should include your cell phone number, as well as the information of the campsite or hotel where you’ll be staying.

Take your pet on some test runs to prep them for long car rides. Madison is an hour drive from Beloit, while Milwaukee and Chicago are 90 minutes away. Start with some short drives before gradually lengthening the time to help you to make sure your pet can handle the long distances. You can also use this time to also test any equipment or crates you will be using.

Bring along a travel kit for your pet. Bring a bowl, leash, food, plastic bags, grooming supplies, and first aid, as well as your pet’s favorite toy or pillow for a sense of familiarity. 

Traveling with your pets is safe and easy if you know the best way to go about it. For the perfect ride for your pets and the rest of your family, visit Finley Buick GMC in Beloit.
