3 Tips to Help You and Your Car Get Ready for Winter

Ready or not, the cold weather is just around the corner. We don’t want you to be caught off guard by the changing road conditions, or worse, put you and your family in a dangerous situation by not having your car be adequately and safely prepared for what the winter months may bring your way. 
So we have tips of what you can do to help ensure you’re ready for whatever the cold weather brings. 

1. Make sure your tires are in good health
You won’t be surprised to find out that having proper tires for winter is of the upmost importance. So what can you do to make sure your tires are safe? First, inspect them closely. Try to notice if the tread of your tires are worn down out at all. Are all the grooves an indentations still there or has your tire become worn down over time? Next, make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended levels. You can do this with a simple tire gauge or at a gas station that offers an air pump. Finally, take your car in to get a professionally done rotation and alignment. The procedures will help extend the life of your tires and keep your car running smooth. 

2. Check your coolant and antifreeze levels 
When the temperatures get real low, antifreeze is vital to your engines health. It will keep your engine running smoothly even when you’re driving in below freezing weather. There are simple kits available at auto supply shops where you can measure the antifreeze level in your car for yourself, or you can bring it in to a mechanic to have them evaluate it. 

3. Ensure Your Heater is in Working Condition 
There would be nothing worse than getting in the car on that first freezing cold morning of winter, turning on your car, and discovering that your heater isn't working. Don't let that happen to you. Check your heater now to make sure it's all in working condition. If you have any questions, you can bring in your car to our expert service team for them to look over. We would be happy to help you out and make sure you are prepared.
