5 women who changed the automotive industry

 

Bertha Benz - Brake pads, 1888

Bertha Benz's first long-distance drive ever lead to the creation of brake pads and the first gear system, when the wooden brakes wore-out and the car had to be pushed when going uphill.

 

 

Margaret Wilcox – Car heater, 1893

One of the few female mechanical engineers of her time, Margaret Wilcox devised a way to heat a car without electricity, channeling hot air from the car engine into the cabin.

 

 

Mary Anderson - Windshield wipers, 1903

While riding a streetcar during a storm, Mary Anderson got the idea for a hand-operated lever inside a vehicle designed to clear snow, rain, or sleet off of a windshield for better visibility.

 

 

Florence Lawrence - Turn and brake signals, 1914

Better known for her acting career, Florence Lawrence invented the turn and brake stop signals. Unfortunately, she failed to patent them and, as a result, she received no credit or profit from them.

 

 

Hedy Lamarr – GPS, 1942

Famous Hollywood's Golden Age actress Hedy Lamarr was also a self-taught inventor who created a frequency-hopping technology that is regarded as a precursor to secure GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.


Is your car fully ready for fall?

 

As the temperature is getting cooler and tree leaves start to fall off, your vehicle requires some changes too to keep performance at its best. To avoid running into unexpected setbacks this fall, here are a few tips on how to make sure your car is ready for upcoming season.

 

Get your windshield checked

As we always indicate, windshields are designed to provide structural support for your vehicle and protect the occupants so their contribution to the safety of your vehicle is vital. A chip or crack may not seem like much more than a cosmetic concern. However, when fall comes along and weather conditions can add to the damage, that small deterioration can become a larger problem. Factors like falling leaves, rain, heavy gusts of wind, branches and twigs flying about can negatively impact your windshield and so it’s better not to postpone that long overdue repair. And while you’re at it, check up on all your auto glass, which is just as important.

 

Check your fluids

Fluids relevance is often also overseen too but they play a fundamental role in keeping your vehicle going and making sure it performs all necessary tasks. Make sure all fluid levels are not low, there are no leaks, no damaged parts, no corrosion, or other forms of potential problems. This applies, but is not limited, to:

    • Transmission fluid
    • Oil
    • Brakes fluid
    • Power steering fluid
    • Coolant
    • Windshield washer

Most fluid maintenance can be done at home. However, if you notice any issues around the areas where the fluids reside, take your vehicle to your local mechanic right away to avoid any heavier complications.

 

Don't forget about your power!

To prevent any unexpected need to jumpstart your battery, with all the hassle it carries, make sure to regularly check your vehicle’s charge and be vigilant of any corrosion. Take your vehicle in to get it looked at the first sign of any issue starting your vehicle or if you happen to notice any damage surrounding your battery.

 

Time to use all-weather mats

You can finally put those all-weather mats pilling up in your garage to use! Though less relevant than the items listed before, your carpets also deserve some tlc to prevent any damage all the fall mud, water, grime and leaves can carry. Trust us, you'll be thanking us later when you don't need to spend endless hours trying to remove stains.

 

Help your vehicle remain reliable as the seasons change. Avoid any worsening synthoms by addresing them as they arise. This won't only save you hassle but money too!
