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:

  1. Make sure you have good windshield wipers and always have your washer fuild filled.
  2. 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.
  3. Always have an emergency kit packed. See our blog post about this!
  4. Service your cars and trucks on time! Is it time for a check-up?
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
