Take a look at these items to consider:
- Replace wiper blades
- Check your spare tire to ensure it is properly inflated. The typical space-saver spare tire found in most cars must be inflated to the inflation pressure listed on the side of the tire.
- Replace windshield-washer fluid.

Grilles, body kits and performance upgrades for trucks, cars, and SUVs are mostly the first changes drivers make to their vehicle. When you delve into the aftermarket and custom auto body parts arena, you’re up against several decisions. What parts do you start changing first? Your exterior has seen some wear from the elements, and maybe you could use a smooth-looking upgrade. Are you into sporty custom looks? A custom body kit, grille, or bumper? These are just a few of the items to consider when making your first custom auto body purchase in Scottsdale or Phoenix. Everything comes down to personal preference, and we’re here to help you make your dream come true.
At Airpark Collision Center of North Scottsdale and North Phoenix, we now offer a full line of custom auto body parts and performance accessories for your vehicle.

Were you aware that you could be penalized for normal wear and tear to your vehicle when your lease is expired in Scottsdale or Phoenix? There could be extra fees and costs that you incur for lease return damage like scratches, door dings, bumper scratches, alloy wheel damage, and also for other interior damage.
Upon returning your vehicle to the Scottsdale or Phoenix lease company, they will hold you responsible for anything they deem as “excessive wear and tear.” If you allow them to use their own repair company to fix this minor damage, you could end up with a major bill anywhere from $700 and up in most cases.
Our expert repair staff here at Airpark Collision Center of Scottsdale and North Phoenix will look over your vehicle the same way the lease company will, and then provide you with a free estimate that will offer you a solution that will best fit your budget and needs. This will ultimately help reduce the costs you would incur if you were to just return the vehicle.
We repair your leased vehicle’s damage with precision and care at an affordable cost for you. Our ultimate plan is to restore your vehicle to it’s original condition. Here at Airpark Collision Center of North Scottsdale and North Phoenix, you can rest assured knowing that our paint and body technicians will exceed your repair expectations.

ESC, or Electronic Stability Control, is now a standard on every new vehicle sold in the United States. Some would say this is the best advance in vehicle safety technology since the seat belt. Here at Airpark Collision Center of North Scottsdale and North Phoenix, we believe this is a major new contributor to the safety of your passengers. Experts in the field are saying it will potentially save thousands of lives. Your insurance company may even offer you a discount for having ESC on your car or truck.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates that if every vehicle on the road had ESC, fatal accidents would be reduced by 10,000 per year. Its 2010 study found that ESC reduces fatal crash involvement on average 33% — a 20% reduction for multiple-vehicle crashes and 49% for single-car crashes. At Airpark Collision Center of North Scottsdale and North Phoenix, according to these numbers we agree that having ESC in your car is a great option.
How does ESC work?
A small computer checks signals from sensors, about 25 times a second whether the steering input accurately corresponds to the direction that the car is traveling. When it senses the vehicle traveling in the wrong direction, it reacts instantaneously, strategically applying the brakes and reducing engine torque to adjust the car back on the chosen path.

“Distracted driving,” is anything that takes your eyes and mind away from driving. This includes any type of food you may consume while in a hurry to get somewhere. When you are on your commute in North Phoenix or North Scottsdale, it is easy to get caught up in the bustle. Believe it or not, there are some foods that are more dangerous to eat than others while driving. Here is a list of the 10 most dangerous foods to eat while you are on the road:
1. Coffee: It always finds a way out of the cup.
2. Hot soup: Many people drink it like coffee and run the same risks.
3. Tacos: A food that can disassemble itself without much help, leaving your car
looking like a salad bar.
4. Chili: The potential for drips and slops down the front of clothing is significant.
5. Hamburgers: From the grease of the burger to ketchup and mustard, it could all
end up on your hands, your clothes, and the steering wheel.
6. Barbecued food: The same issue arises for barbecued foods as for hamburgers.
The sauce may be great, but if you have to lick your fingers, the sauce will end up
on whatever you touch.
7. Fried chicken: Another food that leaves you with greasy hands, which means
constantly wiping them on something, even if it’s your shirt. It also makes the
steering wheel greasy.
8. Jelly or cream-filled donuts: Has anyone eaten a jelly donut without some of
the center oozing out? Raspberry jelly can be difficult at best to remove from
9. Soft drinks: Not only are they subject to spills, but also the carbonated kind can
fizz as you’re drinking if you make sudden movements, and most of us remember
cola fizz in the nose from childhood. It isn’t any more pleasant now.
10. Chocolate: Like greasy foods, chocolate coats the fingers as it melts against the
warmth of your skin, and leaves its mark anywhere you touch. As you try to clean
it off the steering wheel you’re likely to end up swerving.
If you currently are eating some of these foods while driving, we recommend you think twice. The numbers are astounding when it comes to these certain foods being the cause of accidents in North Phoenix and North Scottsdale.
