Before the weather obscures your view, coats the road with ice, and brings other hazards that make driving a challenge, make sure your car is ready for winter with these 3 easy steps.
1. Check Your Wiper Blades
Since 90% of driving decisions are based on vision, be sure your current wipers clean the windshield well. Replacing them with winter wipers, which have rubber coverings that prevent ice, is a smart choice.
2. Get Snow Tires
Snow tires help your car get moving, plus they increase your traction when you are braking and turning. When it comes to your car’s performance on a snowy road, nothing will make a bigger difference.
3. Schedule a FREE Pre-Winter Vehicle Check
Make an appointment for a free pre-winter check-up to ensure that your car is ready for winter driving. For example, cold temperatures are especially draining on an automotive battery because more power is required to start the engine. You may also need an antifreeze treatment and a coolant flush to protect your vehicle from rust, dirt, and mineral deposits during winter’s extreme temperatures.
