Steering Problems Can Make Most Driving Maneuvers

There are many reasons why a car develops steering problems. For example, if an automobile has tires that aren't designed for a specific type of terrain, traction will suffer, and this will make steering more challenging. This guide covers two common issues that change how a vehicle handles on roads that have curves. Understeering is one of the most dangerous problems that impact drivers when they maneuver around steep curves by traffic. This particular problem isn't easy to manage because it takes away a driver's control in the cabin. In order to complete turns in a car that understeers, you'll need to constantly spin your steering wheel. However, this can be quite challenging during situations when you don't have a lot of time to complete a turn. If you want peace of mind on the road, let a mechanic adjust your steering system to eliminate understeering. Oversteering can be managed in environments that have normal conditions because it only makes a car turn sharper than it should. In Maryville, TN, you can resolve a variety of steering problems at Auto Solutions in Maryville, TN. We have seasoned mechanics who fully understand how to service steering systems by various brands.

The Importance of Properly Installing a Child Safe

If you have a young child that you will be driving around with, you'll want to utilize a child safety seat to keep them secure. These seats are designed to provide a level of protection that a child can't get from sitting in the vehicle's regular seat. If you have to install one of these seats, it's important that you complete this process the right way. Otherwise, the seat isn't going to function as it was designed to. Each brand of car seat needs to be installed in its own way. While they all function the same, there may be different ways of hooking the child seat to the existing seat. In general, most car seats will hook to the anchors that are installed in your vehicle. Just be sure to refer to the car seat's manual during installation.

You, Too, Can Successfully Organize a School Carpo

If you've ever seen the caravan of vehicles leaving your neighborhood and thought, "there has to be a better way," you're in luck.

To help make your school carpool as successful as possible, then, here are a few tips from Auto Solutions to help you make the most of your people hauler.

The Difference Between Towing and Payload Capacity

Most people interested in trucks want to know now much power they have. While horsepower and torque are good statistics to check out, so are payload and towing capacities. While they can be related, they do measure different things.

Payload capacity is how much weight a truck can carry in its cabin or bed, with the weight of any passengers included in this amount. Payload is determined by subtracting the weight of the vehicle from its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

Towing capacity refers to how much weight a truck can pull. At Auto Solutions in Maryville, TN, there is actually a wide range of abilities that our vehicles have. Some of the smaller trucks can easily haul at least a few thousand pounds but are limited to five or six thousand pounds. Heavy duty trucks may be able to tow over 10,000 pounds.
