While summer months are a fun time to hit the road, there's always the looming specter of winter just around the corner. Snowy conditions, icy roads, and cold temperatures can wreak havoc on your vehicle, making it challenging to find a way to drive comfortably throughout the chillier months.

Winter Weather Vehicle Preparations

Check Your Vehicle's Battery:

Colder temperatures can be rough on your battery, requiring more juice to get going. You'll want to ensure your battery always has plenty of charge and to never leave your electronics on when not in the vehicle.

Change Your Washer Fluid and Windshield Wipers:

Winter throws a lot of snow, salt, and ice at your windshield. Without the correct wipers rated to handle heavier precipitation, you can find it difficult to see through your windshield. Make sure to have the right wipers for snow and to have the right wiper fluid that won't freeze in subzero temperatures.

Get Your Oil Changed:

Freezing conditions can affect the performance of your engine oil. Ensure that you stick to a routine with oil change appointments, especially during the winter months.

Get Snow Tires Equipped:

All-season and summer tires aren't meant to deal with snowy roads. You'll want to have snow tires equipped when the snow starts falling, as they provide more traction control and handling when the road conditions are unfavorable.

Check Your Defroster and Heater:

Keeping your defroster and heater in excellent working order not only helps keep you warm but keeps your windshield free of ice and ensures you have better visibility when driving.

Check Your Engine Coolant:

Performing this step helps keep your engine from freezing during subzero temperatures. It's never a good thing when your engine can't start because the ratio of your coolant is too low.

Many more tips can help get you prepared for the winter months properly, but the above tips can help you get started! Give us a call today at Chuck Stevens Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT to schedule your winter service appointment and get ready for the snow to fall!
