Winter Preparation Tips For Your Vehicle

 

December has just begun and winter will soon be here. As the temperature drops and the roads get icy, you need to ensure your vehicle is prepared for the upcoming winter months. Here are some handy tips on how to prepare your vehicle:

  1. Inspect Your Tires - Your tire pressure will most likely drop as the temperature also drops. Monitoring your tires' pressure and traction is a must to handle the icy roads.
  2. Test Your Battery - Car batteries are subject to issues in the cold. Parking your car in a garage or parking deck can keep the freezing temperatures at bay. Don't forget to always have some jumper cables handy.
  3. Look For Windshield Cracks - Inspect your car's windshield for cracks and chips. Lower temperatures mean an increased chance of these cracks worsening. Get any cracks in your windshield looked at by an expert and repaired if needed.
  4. Check Your Lights - There are many ways the winter can impact your visibility with less daylight, snow and fog. Check your headlights, brake lights and turn signal lights so that you can see and so other drivers on the road can see you.
  5. Create a Winter Kit - Creating a supply kit is a great way to prepare for any issues on the road. Include items such as flashlights, road flares, a first-aid kit, blankets, warm clothes, an ice scraper and snacks. 
If you need an expert, you can have one of our experienced technicians look at your vehicle and let you know how best to prepare for the winter months.
