At some point in the life of your vehicle, you will likely need to replace some component or part. The process of finding an auto repair shop can be difficult enough, but then the consumer must also make the decision between using OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or aftermarket parts.
So, what do you do? Do you call the dealership you purchased the vehicle at? Do you call your dad? Do you Google it? Well here at Cannon Autos, we like to educate our loyal customers on the art of “Replacing Parts on your Car.”
The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and it’s now perfectly acceptable to run errands in your swimsuit and cover-up. That’s right, Spring is here and Summer is upon us! May is one of the most wonderful times of the year as we transition from Spring to Summer, and the weather only gets more desirable as the days go by. It’s safe to say that we all love May for the obvious reasons such as the amazing weather, but May is an especially beloved time of year for a much more important reason. You may or may not be aware that May is National Military Appreciation Month, and we would like to take a moment to thank all of our Veterans and their families for the brave sacrifices they have made, and continue to make, for our Nation. Without the protection of our Military men and women we wouldn’t be able to enjoy this beautiful time of year, and for that we will always be grateful.
Summer is quickly approaching and you will want to ensure your vehicle is in tip-top shape for all your summer travel plans.

If you’ve ever tried to drive through extreme weather conditions with worn wiper blades, then you understand the importance of caring for this often overlooked aspect of car maintenance. Worn wiper blades can be dangerous because if they aren’t doing the job they’re made to do by giving you an unobstructed view of the road while driving, how will you be able to safely drive in the rain or snow? Freezing temperatures make the rubber in your wiper blades hard and brittle, which increases their tendency to crack or tear; hot weather warps the rubber and prevents the blade from wiping your windshield cleanly.
