The days are growing shorter and the weather’s getting brisker, which means it’s time to start thinking ahead on car care. Make sure you’re prepared for lower temperatures with these tips to help get your car ready for winter.
Change to winter tires. The lower temperatures of Canadian winters bring icy, snowy, and rain-slick roads. Be sure you’re getting the best traction possible by bringing your car into Downtown Autogroup to get your winter tires put on.
Be ready for anything. You never know what life will throw your way, so make sure you’re prepared for any emergency. Gather emergency tools that will come in handy when the weather gets colder and the snow starts to fall, such as a flashlight, shovel, jumper cables, ice scraper, a bag of sand, flares, and warm clothing.
Get a new battery. Low temperatures can affect your battery’s ability to work. Because of this, now is the perfect time to get a new battery. If your battery is relatively new, then make sure it’s in proper working order before you get caught with a dead battery in the cold.
Top off your car’s fluids. Your car needs fluids to run, so make sure you have all of them at the appropriate levels. This includes your windshield wiper fluid and your antifreeze.
