Tips for Getting Your Vehicle Ready for Winter
Here are some of our favorite tips for preparing your car, truck, or SUV for the winter months.
Prepare for Snow Removal
This first tip may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how often people are unprepared for the first snowstorm of the year. Make sure you keep a snowbrush with an ice scraper inside your vehicle at all times. You never know when you’ll have to uncover your vehicle.
Snacks and Survival Gear
Breakdowns are never fun, but in sub-zero temperatures, they can be lethal. Prepare for the worst and make sure your car has survival gear like snacks, water, warm gloves, a jumper cable, flares, and even a blanket. You never know when being prepared can save your life.
Service Your Vehicle
This year, be preemptive with your next service appointment. By bringing in your vehicle for a checkup, the Dave Smith CDA technicians can ensure everything is working as it should and all your fluid levels and gauges are as they should be.
Install Winter Tires
One of the most important things to be aware of during winter is the change in driving conditions. From snow and slush to sheets of ice, there are far more road hazards to watch out for during the winter than at any other time of year. One way you can make your life easier this winter is to switch to winter tires. Designed to provide better traction during winter driving conditions, new tires can go a long way to improving safety.
