winter

 

Winter weather will mean that you will want your vehicle to be in the best condition possible. Make sure to bring it in regularly for maintenance inspections. With winter weather, always make sure that the tires are in the best condition possible for the vehicle. You will want to check several things on the tires as well; this will help to make sure that they are in the best condition to drive on. Always check the air pressure on each tire. The pressure should be at the correct amount so the tires are not under inflated or over inflated. While doing this, also check the tread wear of each tire. If there is poor tread, make sure to bring it in so we can inspect them.

Winter and the Wipers

You will also want to check and change the windshield wipers of the vehicle. This way you can have a clear windshield as you drive. As the wipers age, they will start to show signs of wear and tear on them. The first sign of an issue is if the wipers do not clean the windshield correctly. They may chatter or cause streak marks across the windshield. When you notice this, it is important to change the wipers as soon as possible. Also remember to change the rear wiper of your vehicle, as that will show signs of wear as well.

 

When you drive, also remember to leave enough space between you and the person in front of you. If you are too close, there is a greater chance you can have an accident. You will want to leave three car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you. When the weather is less than ideal, you should double or triple this amount. That way you will have enough time to stop if someone slams on the brakes suddenly.
