Now’s the time to get your car ready for the demands placed on it in the coming winter months. Especially in rain, sleet, freezing rain, and maybe snow, you’ll want your vehicle to start and run reliably. And you’ll want your driving experience to be as safe and comfortable as possible. Here are some things to check to make your winter driving safer and more secure.
Start: Most important, you’ll want your car to start reliably every time. While routine tune-ups are not what they used to be, your vehicle still needs to have new spark plugs installed periodically.
Installing new spark plugs will help assure quick starts even in very cold weather when battery power can be severely compromised.
Look: Visibility is critical to safe driving, and it’s doubly important when snow, sleet, and ice obstruct vision. For that reason, safer visibility in extreme winter driving conditions demand the best wiper blades you can buy.
Listen: Certainly you should listen to the advice of your trusted repair shop when it comes to safe and proper maintenance of your vehicle. Your mechanic knows your car and its history, and is best qualified to recommend needed parts and service.
