How To Prepare Your Car for Winter

Winters can be rough, but there are plenty of ways to make sure your car is ready to handle the cold front. Proper preparation for the season will allow you to drive as safely as possible.

Tires

At first glance, you might notice your tires are in the front line of the snowstorms ahead. Check the treads of your tires and maybe even consider getting snow tires, depending on the area you live in and how much snow it gets. Schedule an appointment for automotive services Coshocton OH to get your tires rotates and checked for the winter.

Wipers

Also taking the brute of the storm will be your windshield wipers. Your windshield wiper blades should be replaced for the winter to ensure they can handle the potential icy rain and snow ahead. Along with the wipers, make sure your windshield fluids are freshly replaced so they don’t freeze.

Parts

Now that you’ve taken care of the outside, make sure you also get the inside of your car ready for winter. Check that your heater and battery are in good shape or if they need to be replaced or fixed. Be sure you get your oil changes on time and new antifreeze for the winter too.

Gear

Stock up the inside of your car with winter essentials. Blankets and a first aid kit are essentials to keep in your car all year round. Make sure you check your first aid kit every winter to see if anything has expired. In addition to these essentials, you can add a shovel, ice scraper and snow broom to store in your trunk. These are great for when you find yourself having to dig out your car from a fresh blanket of snow. The snow broom will make clearing snow off the roof of your car a breeze.  

Neglecting these parts can lead to extensive damages and costly repairs on your vehicle. This is the last thing you need when dealing with inclimate weather.
