Tips to Prep Your Vehicle for the Winter
As winter approaches, we enter the mindset of planning for long drives and taking the car for a spin! But before that, your car needs to be prepped in the same way you get ready for winter by whipping out jackets and cardigans.
The performance of the vehicle should be top-notch before the mercury drops, which is why you need to remember these tips:
Check the coolant in your radiator to ensure its consistency is what it should be. It needs to be inspected by a certified technician, so if he recommends any kind of changes, do so right away.
Go through the owner’s manual that is provided along with the car. Utilize the oil rated for winter use as suggested by the manufacturer. Stock up on wiper-washer fluid and ensure the transmission fluid is completely clean.
Windshield wipers should ideally be replaced at least once in a year, especially if you are driving at night or if there is rain, hail, sleet, and snow. The back windshield wiper also has to be in prime condition.
