A good car is a tough machine; it’s take you anywhere for as long as you need it. However, in order for it to remain a good, tough machine, it needs good care. The cold weather of winter can put some strain on your care, so take time for winter auto care this year, and check on these things.
Even great windshield wipers wear down. Hopefully, you have a pair that will last the year. If you’re driving with bad wipers, you will have a tough time when rain, snow, and sleet hit, and your visibility, and your safety, will be affected. So, inspect your wiper blades and have them replaced.
Your tires are some of the most important things on your car; you need them to be at their best anytime you’re on the road. To handle winter driving conditions, they need good tread depth and the proper inflation. Anytime you’re going somewhere, check their pressure before you go out. Have a professional examine their tread depth. Only drive in winter with good, strong tires.
Heater and Defroster
You don’t want to get in your car on a cold day only to discover that the heater doesn’t work. Have your heating and cooling system inspected so that you stay comfortable while driving.
Your car’s oil can thicken when the weather gets cold. This makes it hard for the oil to do its job and lubricate when the engine starts. Winter is a good time to use synthetic oil because it won’t change consistency when the temperatures change.
