Q&A

Big or small?

with
Sharon Peters

Q: Bigger tires or smaller tires for a new SUV I’m buying? It can go either way. I won’t be off-roading or anything like that. What’s your preference? A: Smaller. They’re better from a fuel-economy perspective, and they’re almost always quieter. They cost less, too. Q: My brakes feel a lot “less firm” than they used to. My husband says that’s normal because the car is three years old. Should I worry? A: Please check to make sure your brake fluid level is OK. If it’s low, that’s an easy fix. If that’s not the issue, get it checked for a brake line obstruction.
