Well, there’s a lot of different “reports” out there – some saying a “bad” winter, some saying a mild winter ahead. Some say a dry winter, some say a wet winter. Who really knows?
In any case, it’s worth repeating a few good tips for “winterizing” your vehicles:
- Make sure you have good windshield wipers and always have your washer fuild filled.
- Keep your tires inflated correctly with the appropriate pressure or, if you live where you’re assured of tons of ice and snow, install winter tires.
- Always have an emergency kit packed. See our blog post about this!
- Service your cars and trucks on time! Is it time for a check-up?
- It’s a good idea to make sure you have a least a half-tank of gas at all times during the winter months – you never know if you are going to be stranded for a period of time due to weather.
- WASH your vehicle regularly including the undercarriage especially after brine or salt has been used on the roads! Refer back to our blog “Rust and Corrosion – You Don’t Want It” for more tips about this!
Old Man Winter is coming whether we like it or not – if we have a mild or a harsh season, it is good to be prepared either way!
