Winter Weather Tips

Looks like our cold weather is here to stay and we want to make sure your vehicle is ready for it. Here are a few items to check off your list before heading into the official winter season.

√ Check the battery

o   A car battery is more likely to die during the harsh cold weather. Cold temperatures are known to slow the chemical reactions that occur inside of a battery, its quality and shortening its lifespan.

√ Change the oil

o   Are you changing your oil every 3,000 – 5,000 miles? If the oil is accumulating dirt, it can become less effective at lubricating the internal components.

√ Replace Wiper Blades

o   During the winter season, wiper blades tend to wear down more. This can be a serious hazard in bad weather. Thankfully, replacing your wiper blades is inexpensive and a quick DIY!

√ Check Tire Inflation Levels

o   Check tire levels on a regular basis since the pressure fluctuates more with temperature change. This can cause your car to consume more fuel and increase gas cost.

Pack Your Survival Kit
