Buying a vehicle, whether it’s used or new, is more expensive than ever. For many people, that means putting off a vehicle purchase for the foreseeable future. But if you’re planning on getting an extra 20,000 miles or so out of your family sedan, SUV, or minivan, you may need to dump a little cash into it to ensure it’s as safe and reliable as possible.
Here are three components that should always be in perfect working condition and tip-top shape regardless of your vehicle’s age:
Brakes—When your brakes are severely worn, they become much less effective. It takes longer to slow down and stop, which increases your risk of a crash. And when brakes are pushed to the point of failure, you may be unable to stop at all, which is extremely dangerous.
Tires—Tires should have plenty of tread and be free from damage and dry rot. Severely worn tires are a risk factor not only for losing control while driving, but also sudden blowouts. Tire blowouts can result in immediate loss of control and even rollovers, which are often deadly.
Lights—Your lights are essential for driving at night and times of limited visibility. Not only do they illuminate your path, but they also make it possible for other drivers to see you. Check your headlights, high beams, fog lights, turn signals, and brake lights regularly and replace any burned out bulbs.
Drivers who cause crashes because they were driving dangerous and poorly maintained vehicles can be held liable. If you or someone you love is injured in a crash with a neglected vehicle, the Nashville auto accident lawyers at Ponce Law are here to talk.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to Ponce Law.

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
