Seeing is Believing When it Comes to Road Safety




It's no secret that properly functioning vehicle lights, wipers and mirrors allow for better visibility while driving, yet these items are often forgotten or ignored when performing basic auto care, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



"Making sure that you can see and be seen on the road is essential to avoiding motor vehicle accidents, yet many motorists overlook simple maintenance steps that can improve driving visibility," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "For example, community car care events held throughout the country reveal that nearly one in three vehicles inspected had insufficient wiper fluid. This simple auto care service can make a world of difference on the road."



Following a few auto care visibility tips can be illuminating, helping to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other vehicles around you.


  • Replace any exterior or interior lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or non-functioning, and be sure headlights are correctly aimed.

  • Make sure that vehicle mirrors are clean and properly positioned.

  • Check windshield washer fluid level and when it gets low, replace it.

  • Replace wiper blades if they show cracking or if they chatter or streak when operating. Don't forget to check the rear wiper blade.

  • When in doubt, turn your lights on to help you see and help other drivers see you. Some states have laws that require headlights to be on when windshield wipers are operating.

  • Don't overdrive your headlights. Maintain a speed that will allow you to stop within the illuminated area, otherwise you create a blind crash zone in front of your vehicle.

what our customers say

Bob repaired my car when I could find no one else in the area who'd even touch it, did it with a smile, and did a great job. I would definitely recommend anyone, with any kind of car, to this honest, hard-working, uber-good place, but especially those of you who've been looking for a really good, honest mechanic for your Volvo!

None better. My vintage MG had a slight surge that I put up with for years, and several MG 'gurus' had been unable to fix. Mac fixed it by polishing an internal part to make it smooth - car hasn't run better in decades. And like others have said in their reviews, I was amazed when he called me on a Sunday night to tell me what he had found. I'm a fan!

Foreign affair is run by a wife and husband. I came across this place accidently when I was having problems with my Infiniti FX35 near RAFB. They are extremely honest, I check their prices on parts and they were not ripping me off. I was very impressed with the communication and the ease of the process.

They are very knowledgeable, honest, accommodating, and helpful. I have been coming here for years and am never disappointed in the quality of service.

Best Repair Shop I have ever been! I normally called them to repair my 2002 Volkswagen Passat. They always call me after they check out the car to let me know what issue (s) my car has and to let me know how much parts and labor would cost before they begin the repair. My wife and I are very satisfied with this shop and would not trust our cars to no one else in town.

We have had several repairs done on two different cars at Foreign Affair. They are always courteous, affordable and fast. The last repair we needed was completed in less than 24 hours. I highly recommend them.
