Tips for Winterizing your Car

Winterizing Your Car Under the Hood &
Things to Carry in the Trunk, Just in Case of Breakdown

Snow might be pretty to look at, but it sure makes vehicle maintenance (and driving) more of a chore, doesn't it?

Here are some tips that will make it a breeze to winterize your car:

  • Check windshield wiper blades to make sure they work properly. In some areas, snow blades are an effective alternative to conventional wiper blades.

  • Check your anti-freeze/coolant to provide the correct level of protection required in your driving area.

  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Letting air out to drive in snow can reduce the gripping action of tires because the tread will not meet the road surface as it was designed to do. Over-inflation has the same effect.

  • Use dedicated snow and ice tires if you live in.  Click here to see all tips
