Winter Vehicle Check-Up

Winter is fast approaching. Before is gets here take a look at 5 things that need attention in your car. Once your car is in order you will be able to take on this winter season.

Cold weather is tough on batteries. It is good to get your battery condition checked before it starts to get too cold. Have your battery tested and charged if necessary to make sure you don't find yourself in a cold situation with a dead battery.  
Check your antifreeze, its what keeps your engine from freezing. You want to use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze, which can be tricky to do. We can check this for you or you can buy a tester at an auto shop.

Having your brake system checked is critical before driving on snowy or icy roads. Good working brakes will be the difference between your car making it in once piece or ending in a tree.

Tire pressure drops as the temperature drops. That means in the winter you should be checking  your tire pressure weekly. Tire tread is even more critical as the roads become icy. You don't want to find yourself sliding into something or someone.

Windshield Wipers & Fluid:
Wiper blades are only meant to last a year.  Can you remember the last time you had yours changed? Make sure they are in good condition as your windshield starts to freeze and snow starts to fall. Salt and dirt on the road love to stick to your windshield and when driving on snow or ice its even more crucial that you can see clearly. Top off your windshield wiper fluid because if you run out in bad weather you're stuck blind in your car.
