The coldest weather of the year is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start getting your car ready for winter. Follow these tips for preparing your car to successfully survive the winter.
Maintaining good visibility is always important, but this is especially true in winter. Before winter arrives, makes sure all of your vehicle lights are working, and change your vehicle’s windshield wipers if they are cracked, bent, or ineffective.
The varying temperatures can cause the air in your vehicle’s tires to expand and contract, so as winter approaches, it’s important to routinely check your car’s tires for proper inflation. Additionally, it’s a good idea to consider a dedicated set of winter tires that perform best in cold weather conditions.
Cold weather can zap a failing car battery completely. Before the coldest days of the year are here, have your car battery tested by Clark Chevrolet Cadillac to make sure it is holding a proper charger. Replace it if not.
It’s important to keep some emergency items in your vehicle should you suffer a breakdown in hazardous conditions. This emergency kit should include things like blankets, bottled water, and a battery powered cell phone charger.
If your car needs a checkup before winter, the service experts at Clark Chevrolet Cadillac can inspect it for you.
