Some of the most important safety features on your car aren’t always an advanced automatic feature like emergency braking. Instead, your vehicle’s safety systems can be as basic as your tires. Without your tires, you are not going anywhere—they affect your vehicle’s braking, handling, and ride. That is why tire safety is so important.
One of the most important steps in tire safety is regular inspections. You should make a habit of thoroughly checking your tires once a month. Look for signs of wear, good tread depth, and proper inflation.
Excess wear on a tire can appear as cracks or bulges on the side wall or uneven tread wear. If you see any of these signs, schedule a service appointment at Don Robinson Mitsubishi for a closer look.
Another important factor in tire safety is how your car handles. If you feel any unusual vibrations or hear a thumping noise, this can indicate an out-of-balance tire or a tire with a flat spot. Furthermore, a tire that pulls your car to one side could be underinflated or damaged.
When you do perform your tire inspection, take a quarter with you. While many experts suggest the penny test, a quarter will give you better results. Place the quarter down into the tread with Washington’s head facing down. If you can see the top of Washington’s head, this means your tread is less than 4/32” and it is time for new tires.
If you need help installing a new set of tires, our service team at Don Robinson Mitsubishi is ready to lend a hand.

Here in Minnesota, hunting season is a big deal. If you don’t participate yourself, you probably know at least a few people who do. While much of Minnesota hunting season is over for 2017, we are already looking forward to next year.
If you are not ready to quit yet, there is still some time left for certain types of game. If you are a bow hunter, you can still bag yourself a deer through December 31st. Bobcat season runs through January 7th. Rabbit and squirrel season covers much of the winter and is open through February 28th. You can also still hunt grouse and pheasant until January 1st.
If you have never been hunting before, but would like to try it out, there are a few things you need to do. Make sure that if you are planning a hunt, you follow all the Minnesota rules and regulations and secure your license before you head out. Another good recommendation is to take a hunter safety course. These courses will cover all the safety precautions and rules you need to follow.
How successful was your hunting season this year? Here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, many of us are hunters and look forward to spending a weekend or two out in the wilderness next fall.

There are some great family features in the Eclipse Cross that make it an ideal choice for any adventure-loving troop. The available all-wheel drive will help keep you on the right path. Add in the heated seats, for both the front and rear seats to stay warm and cozy all season long.
Inside, there is plenty of available technology. Add the available head-up display to get all the information you need with crisp color. The touchpad controller, high-resolution touchscreen, and great connectivity make the Eclipse Cross’s technology easy for everyone to use.
To help keep everyone safe, the Eclipse Cross also has a suite of available safety technology, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning.
