Summer is coming to an end soon and it’s time to start preparing your vehicle for the changing of the seasons and the eventual colder weather. Fall and winter can be punishing on your vehicle, especially if you’re not ready for them. Thankfully, we’ve got some tips for you to put into practice, allowing you to make sure your vehicle is prepared for the upcoming weather changes! Continue reading to see what we recommend.
Your battery might be functioning fine during the spring, summer, and early fall, but as the temperature suddenly drops down in the winter, that might change. You should make sure your battery is checked early and that the replacement, if needed, happens as early as possible rather than during the coldest days of the year. The last thing you need or want is to be stranded in the cold.
Check and Replace Coolant
Another important check we recommend is that you check your coolant system, making sure it's functioning properly. This includes the radiator, as it keeps your vehicle from overheating. You might think that is not an issue in the cold, but engines heat up fast and so it’s important that you have optimal heat recovery and movement while on the road.
Tire Inspections and Replacement
Another key and important check you should make is on the tires of your vehicle. You should make sure that the treads are in great condition, as it can largely impact your drive on the roads as they get more and more slick and icy. Have your tires inspected and replaced in the fall if necessary.
These are just a few of the many things you can do to prepare your vehicle for the coming changes in the seasons. There are plenty more that you can employ! To learn more about what you can do, or to have your vehicle serviced, contact our dealership today!
