Winter is here...

 

  • Keep the Battery in Good Shape. Your vehicle's battery is especially hard hit when the temperature drops.
  • Replace Wiper Blades. You have to replace wiper blades more often than you might think. ...
  • Clear the Windows. ..it is actually a ticketable offense to not clear the snow from your car windows, not being able to see the other car because of the snow is not a good excuse if you get in an accident - BUT don't use your wipers to do it ...that first frozen snow on the window will ruin your wipers, and heavy snow is not good for the wiper arms!
  • Check the Oil - Cold weather is hard on your engine, oil thickens as it gets colder and makes it harder for your car to turn over. We use a multi-viscosity oil that will work in winter, so keep up with your oil changes!
  • Consider New Tires.If you drive a typical number of miles, somewhere around 12,000-15,000 miles annually, a tire's tread will wear out in three to four years, long before the rubber compound does. But if you only drive 6,000 miles a year, or have a car that you only drive on weekends, aging tires could be an issue, they can start to get dry rot. This appears as tiny cracks on the sidewalls and in between the treads. Your tires rubber becomes harder and have less grip on the road. So, even if you have only 25K miles on them and they are over 4 years old, it is time for new tires. Even if your tires are in good shape, make sure that you keep them properly inflated. Big drops in temperature mean your tires will lose air, because tire pressure declines with the thermometer. There is actually a difference in Winter air and Summer air!
