Prepare Your Car Now for Winter Driving

Nov 14, 2018 | Uncategorized

Winter is coming, so it’s the perfect time to get your car ready for weather that may be on the way. Paying attention to your vehicle now can help save you from a real headache in the months to come. Taking time for this preparation could even save you a trip to the auto body repair shop in the future. Carolina Collision & Frame Service has a few tips to get your  car ready for winter:

  • Service it – Don’t wait until winter starts to get your vehicle serviced. Get all damaged repaired in addition to a tune up. This will help things run at their best once harsher weather arrives.
  • Work on your wipers – Next, make sure you inspect your windshield wipers. If they look worn out, purchase and install new ones. Top off your windshield washer fluid, too.
  • Check your tire pressure – Check the pressure of your tires. Pressures tend to be lower when the temperatures drop. Poorly pressurized tires are risky and can cause you to lose control of your car.
  • Pack for emergencies – Finally, plan ahead in the event of an emergency. Make sure you always have a blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, ice scraper, salt, and other emergency supplies in your trunk.
