5 Easy Car Improvement Holiday Gift Ideas

We all know someone who is impossible to shop for during the holiday season. With supply chain issues and product shortages, this year can bring additional challenges to gift-giving. It is time to start getting creative. The local mechanics at Chapel Hill Tire are here with some suggestions on auto repairs and updates you can give this holiday season. 

1: New Tires

Tires are an investment, one integral to your vehicle safety, handling, braking, and fuel efficiency. If your parents, partner, or child is due for a new set of tires—this could be the perfect holiday gift. You can shop online with ease using our Tire Finder tool. It shows you all of the tires available for your loved one’s vehicle—allowing you to compare prices and features. You can also view the full pricing breakdown to avoid any hidden fees or surprises. The gift of new tires is an investment that will keep them safe and moving forward for years to come. 

2: Oil Change

As one of the most frequently-needed car maintenance visits, an oil change is a small service that can feel like a huge inconvenience. By giving the gift of an oil change, you can save your love one time while protecting their engine with this affordable service. Best of all, with pick-up and delivery, you won’t even need to leave your seat to show your loved ones you care.  

3: Brake Pads and Rotors

Responsive brakes are a necessary element of vehicle safety. Over time, most braking systems will wear out the brake pad friction material and warp the brake rotors. If your loved one is due for brake services, this could be the gift that saves their life on the road. A professional mechanic can assess their brakes to determine the needed course of action. 

4: Trailer Hitch Installation

Do you have anyone in your life who loves adventure? A trailer hitch installation could make a great gift. Unfortunately, these vital installations no longer come standard on many capable vehicles. Giving the gift of trailer hitch installation can help your loved one unlock new adventures. Even small cars can make use of a trailer hitch for bike racks, small cargo carriers, and other unique attachments.

5: Headlight Restoration

Headlights are another key safety feature that can often go unchecked. Most headlights are made with acrylic lenses. The sun’s UV rays oxidize acrylic—causing yellowing, foggy, opaque, and dim headlights. Thankfully, there is a simple solution to oxidized headlights: restoration service. During this process, an expert will use professional-grade tools to remove and resurface the oxidized layer of the lenses. They will then polish on a protective layer to deter future oxidization.
