With Winter on the Way, Time to Prepare Your Car

Freezing temperatures, precipitation and salted streets are just some of the problems winter can add to your car maintenance. Making sure your vehicle is ready for winter will help keep you both safe and warm.

One thing that is commonly overlooked in winter car care is lighting. The sun setting early creates a major hazard from the morning and evening commutes to weekend driving. Checking to see if your lights are in excellent shape and providing the brightest possible illumination will make sure you can see and that other cars can see you.

The easiest fix is to make sure all the bulbs are working. In winter weather, make sure the headlights are clear and not obstructed by snow or ice. Finally consider replacing yellow or foggy headlights for maximum effectiveness.

A winter survival kit is also a good idea in case road conditions or vehicles problems stop you cold. Consider adding a blanket, a first-aid kit, a knife, a flashlight, jumper cables and a car charger to you list.
