Winter is Coming! Are You Ready?

It’s already that time of year when the days get shorter, temperatures fall, and we’re not far away from ice and snow forming on the roads. That kind of big seasonal change means that conscientious drivers are already thinking of making the transition for their car to operate more safely during the winter season. So what should you be doing?

Get That Winter Tune-Up

Bring your car in for a preparatory check! Make sure anti-freeze and coolant are replenished, switch your oil to a winter-grade product, and get your electronics like battery, lights, fuses, heating, and brakes all checked out.

Pack A Winter Emergency Box

Definitely something you hope to never use, but it could save your life and those of your passengers if it’s in your trunk! Make sure to include flares, blankets, first aid kit, a bag of sand for traction, and even high energy snacks.

Change Your Wiper Blades

Regular wipers are great in the rain, but once snow and ice are blowing in the air, winter wiper blades do a much better job of keeping your vision clear.

Switch To Winter Tires

The most important thing is to make sure you have the proper tires for this slippery season! Winter tires with better traction mean a safer, smoother driving experience, and we can help with that, or just keep your current tires at the correct pressure and depth!
