In addition to having the appropriate maintenance service on your vehicle here are a few easy tips for keeping you and your car driving safely this winter:
- Check the anti-freeze level of your vehicle with an anti-freeze tester and add fluid as necessary.
- Check your windshield wiper blades and replace your windshield wiper fluid with a wintertime ” no freeze” mixture.
- Check the air pressure in your tires frequently during the winter months when dramatic temperature changes occur and make sure that they have adequate tread for good traction and handling in poor conditions.
