Last winter was not so good for my Chevy Cruze when it snowed.
My vehicle is not so new anymore. It was still rolling on the tires the manufacturer put on it in 2011.
Even though I consider it a low-mileage car, I was proud that my strict devotion to rotate-when-you-change-the-oil got me creeping to the 40,000-mile mark.
I crossed that this summer.
In Novemmber, I went to a place within walking distance to my library workplace and told them to put on some new all-season Coopers, 50,000-miles guaranteed.
Yeah, when they quoted me on the phone the day prior to my appointment, they neglected to mention the cost of an alignment.
And when they had the Cruze up on the lift, they said it needed a front brake job. No, I admitted on my phone, I hadn’t replaced them yet. Go do it.
But still less so than buying snow tires and other-three-season tires. It is only two miles each way to work. Fingers crossed …
