Winter Car Care and Maintenance

 

Don’t be left out in the cold! Winter break-downs could leave you stranded on cold, snowy, slippery roads. Before the snow begins to fly, it is a good idea to make sure your car is in good safe working condition. You or your auto repair shop or local mechanic should give your car a thorough inspection and perform any needed vehicle maintenance to head off potential car trouble:

 

  • Check the battery
  • Check the brakes
  • Check fluids: antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, and oil
  • Check the heating and exhaust
  • Check tires for tread-wear and proper inflation

 

For added safety, keep emergency supplies on board in winter months.

  • Blankets
  • Flares
  • A bag of sand for traction
  • Shovel
  • Windshield scraper and brush or broom
  • Tool kit
  • Tow rope
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Jumper cables
  • Waterproof matches
  • A jar candle 
  • First aid kit
  • Red flag
  •  Dry clothing
  • Snacks
  • Gloves

 

A few minutes of thought and preparation now, will give you peace of mind and keep you on the road arriving safely at your destinations all winter long.
