How To Keep Your Car On The Road During Winter
Winter is on its way and you know what that means! The holiday season and the cold weather is on it’s way. Depending on where you live your car may have to endure icy road, freezing temperatures, and snow. Here are a few tips to enhance your care for your car this winter.

Battery

It is known that car batteries have a more difficult time operating during the winter. There is nothing worse than being stranded in the freezing cold with a dead battery. We recommend having a volt test performed on your battery to make sure it is still in good condition. This way you do not have to worry about being stranded in the cold with a car that won’t start.

Coolant

“Coolant, also known as antifreeze, is tremendously important to your car, as it keeps the engine from freezing in cold temperatures.” Make sure to check that the coolant level in your vehicle is not low and check for any leaks that may cause the coolant to drain out.

Tire Pressure

Did you know that your tire pressure can drop along with the temperature? It is important to check your tire pressure and add a little more air for the winter months. You can do this at a local gas station.

Defroster and Climate Control

Make sure that your defroster and climate control are in proper working condition. These items are crucial to traveling safely in the winter. The Climate control allows you to stay warm in your car and the defroster will keep your windows from frosting over.

We hope you have a safe and cheerful holiday season!
