Is Your Car Winter Ready?

 

All across the nation we are already seeing record low temperatures and record high snowfall, and it is expected to spread all over North America. Is your car ready for the snow? There are a few simple tasks you can complete now, before it is too late and you can't even get your car out of the driveway! Here are a few tips to prepare your car for winter.

Scheduled Maintenance

Are you up to date with your vehicle manufacturer's recommended service schedule? Check your owner's manual and if necessary make an appointment with your local shop to have any due services performed.

Current Problems

Cold weather has a way of making existing problems grow worse. Hard starts, power loss, decreased acceleration and other issues will quickly turn into no starts, no power and no acceleration.

Wiper Blades

Be sure your blades can clear the visionary path you need for safe driving!

Coolant Flush

Coolant, also known as antifreeze, is imperative to proper winter operation. Does your coolant need to be replaced?

Battery Check

Check your battery to ensure it is connected tightly and there is no dirt or corrosion on the terminals, as a poor connection could leave you stranded.

Check Lighting

Do your headlights, turn signals, driving lights, brake lights, reverse lights and others exterior lights all work? Better make sure for optimal safety.

Tires

Be sure they can handle snow and other heavy weather and to that they are in good condition and filled properly.

Brake Check

While driving on ice will making stopping incredibly difficult, having optimal braking power will give you the best chance in snow and other inclement weather.
