  • Auto Correct Throwback | Auto Insurance w/ Special Guest: MS Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney

    Original Air Date: 6/15/2023Vehicle insurance (also known as car insurance, motor insurance, or auto insurance) is insurance for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other road vehicles. Its primary use is to provide financial protection against physical damage or bodily injury resulting from traffic collisions and against liability that could also arise from incidents in a vehicle. Vehicle insurance may additionally offer financial protection against theft of the vehicle, and against damage to the vehicle sustained from events other than traffic collisions, such as keying, weather or natural disasters, and damage sustained by colliding with stationary objects. The specific terms of vehicle insurance vary with legal regulations in each region. guest caller: Insurance Commissioner Mike ChaneyEmail the show: auto@mpbonline.orgRecalls: Check for Recalls: Vehicle, Car Seat, Tire, Equipment | NHTSANews: Uninsured Motorist Statistics By State [2023]Auto Casey Car Review: 2023 Land Rover Defender 130
  • Auto Correct | Suspension

    Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. Wikipedia Email the show: auto@mpbonline.orgRecalls: Check for Recalls: Vehicle, Car Seat, Tire, Equipment | NHTSAAuto Casey: 2024 Subaru CrossTrek Wilderness | Short TakeNews: As consumers plan their summer road trips, it’s a good idea to check on tire health before hitting the road. Properly maintained tires can help you stay safer on the road and save money on gas in the long run. Goodyear’s Michiel Kramer, director of Product Marketing recommends keeping the following considerations in mind: Check your door panel for tire pressure: Recommended tire pressure is included right on a small sticker located on the driver’s side door jamb! Check here first, so you don’t have to guess. Hot summer roads and increased sun exposure mixed with underinflated or overinflated tires can be a one-way street to a tire blowout, so it’s important to be on top of your tire pressure this summer.Check your tire treads: High temperatures can cause your tires to wear out faster, leading to decreased traction. You can quickly check your tire tread by inserting a penny into your tire – if Lincoln’s head doesn’t sink into the tire groove, it’s time for new tires.Make sure you have the right tires: As a rule of thumb, you should remove winter tires once the overnight temperature is consistently above 45°F and switch back to all-season or summer tires, such as Cooper Cobra Instinct®. If off-roading adventures are on your summer bucket list, check out the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® RT.You can get your tires inspected for FREE: Drop by a Goodyear Auto Service center to get a Free Car Care Check where a technician will conduct a thorough tire and vehicle inspection. Visit the nearest center for extra peace of mind before your trip!
