VIBRATIONS SQUISHY PEDAL One of the most dangerous symptoms of all can be a squishy feel at the brake pedal. If the pedal doesn't seem to exert much pressure, or even lets you push it all the way to the floorboard, your brakes could be on the verge of total failure due to a loss of brake fluid, air or water in the brake lines, or a leaky or broken power brake system. If the brake pedal feels considerably softer than usual when you step on it, consider this an emergency and stop

If you sense any unusual vibrations when stopping, this can also mean it's time to get your brakes checked. Some people will feel a slight vibration in their steering wheel and assume it's a problem with the suspension or tires, but that's not necessarily the case. Brakes that are worn unevenly can manifest themselves through the steering feel, especially if the vibrations get worse when you step on the brake pedal.

ir filters aren't just for the engine; check them for the cabin, too.

Every engine uses a filter to clean the air before it enters the combustion chamber. These filters play two vital roles. One, they keep dust, dirt and grime out of your engine, which makes it last longer. And two, they make sure the air is as clean as possible when it enters the combustion chamber, which helps with gas mileage. If you've noticed your car get-

The idea is simple: Just like your air filters at home, a cabin air filter will remove dust and pollen from the air — and some-

that see a lot of stormy, rainy weather. The deeper your tire treads are, the more water they'll be able to displace on wet roads, which gives you added traction and better handling in the rain. For even more confidence, you can opt for tires that are specially designed for wetweather driving. These tires will funnel extra water away from the driving surface as they roll, which keeps the vehicle firmly planted during storms. It's also a good idea to check your car's alignment. Over time,

Most drivers forget about their windshield wiper blades until they need them the most: in the middle of a heavy rainstorm. Don't wait until a storm hits to think about your wipers. While it's dry and sunny, check the condition of your wiper blades. The rubber should be soft and easily bendable. If it seems hard, dry, cracked, torn or peeling, get new blades right

While you should use special de-icing washer fluid during the winter months, there are more specialized washer fluids that can do a better job during the summer driving season for removing bugs or sticky mud from your windshield.
