Is Your Car Winter Ready?

Vehicle Ready For Winter

Is your car ready for colder weather?

With Winter already on its way, many Americans are bundling up, and preparing their homes for the winter months. However, it can be easy to forget that your vehicle may need some maintenance before the weather drops as well! Today we will go over a few ways that you can make sure your car or truck is performing its best throughout the holiday season. If you have any questions, of if you need help with vehicle repair, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (413) 781-2480!

Tires

Are you tires prepared for icy or slick roads? Make sure that they are properly inflated, and that they have plenty of tread left. This way you can be sure your tires will keep you safe in less than perfect weather situations.

Lights

Cold winter days can be snowy and gray, which leads to impaired visibility. It is always a good idea to make sure your headlights are clear and bright before that happens.

Heater

Nobody wants to deal with a broken heater in winter, especially in the mornings! If your heater seems to be weaker than it should be, take your car in to get checked out. Fixing your heater before it goes out is not only smarter, it’s also cheaper!

Battery

For many vehicle owners, Winter is the dreaded time of the year when car batteries die. Hot summer months cause a great deal of wear and tear on car batteries, and when the cold weather rolls around, the batteries struggle to make a cold start, and ultimately fail. Be sure to check the condition of your battery at the first sign of a weak start, so that you don’t end up stranded with a dead battery in the cold!
