With cold winter days on the horizon, now is a great time to get your vehicle winter-ready. Follow these winter vehicle care tips to keep your vehicle running smoothly throughout the season.
Check your tires regularly
When the temperature outside drops, your tire pressure can also lower. As such, you should regularly check your tire pressure to ensure your tires are properly inflated. You should also inspect your tire tread routinely since tread is important for having traction on slippery roads.
Level off your antifreeze
Antifreeze or coolant is what prevents your engine from freezing on frigid days. That’s why it’s important that you make sure you have enough antifreeze in your vehicle. You should also check that there are no leaks in the engine, which could cause your antifreeze to drain.
Ensure you have optimal visibility
You need to have enough visibility when driving, especially during winter snowstorms. Replace your wiper blades before the weather gets too cold if they are not working properly or they’re leaving streaks. You should also replace any light bulbs that are out in your headlights or taillights.
