Be prepared for winter driving

Driving in the winter can be harrowing, especially in snowstorms and icy conditions. By getting your car ready for winter and using some simple tips to drive safely, you can face almost any weather Mother Nature decides to send your way.

Prepare Your

Car for Winter

In addition to annual maintenance, here are some tips to winterize your car:

• Test your battery battery power drops as the temperature drops

• Make sure the cooling system is in good working order

• Have winter tires with a deeper, more flexible tread put on your car

• If using all-season tires, check the tread on your tires and replace if less than 2/32 of an inch

• Check the tire pressure; tire pressure drops as the temperature drops

• Check your wiper blades and replace if needed

• Add wiper fluid rated for -30 degrees

• Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze

Routine vehicle maintenance

Routine vehicle maintenance

Owning a car is a big responsibility. Drivers who plan to keep their vehicles for the long haul must emphasize maintenance if they want to keep adding miles to their odometers. In fact, the automotive information site CarAdvice says that routine maintenance may be the most important thing drivers can do for their vehicles.

A vehicle needs consistent care if it is to run efficiently. Maintenance also reduces the risk of roadside breakdowns and costly repairs. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of staying on top of maintenance.

• Saves money: Even though maintenance costs money, sticking to a consistent maintenance schedule can save big bucks in the long run. For example, the cost of rotating and aligning tires is considerably less than repairing a car after a major blowout and paying for a tow and tire replacement.

Tire maintenance keeps drivers safe

Tire maintenance keeps drivers safe

Maintaining tires is an important component of safe driving. Tires are some of the hardest working parts on a car or truck and are subjected to wear and tear every time rubber meets the road.

Tires affect many components of driving, including handling, braking and the comfort of the ride. Maintaining tires makes driving safe not only for drivers and their passengers, but also for fellow motorists.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that, in 2017, 738 fatalities occurred because of tire-related crashes. Many of those crashes were no doubt preventable, and that only highlights the importance of maintaining tires and monitoring their performance.
