How To Prepare Your Vehicle For Winter | Dallas, Georgia

Taking care of your vehicle requires season-specific service, and the winter calls for some particular needs. Follow these steps from Paulding CDJR to prepare your vehicle for safe and efficient driving in the winter.

 

Check Your Battery

Car batteries tend to fail in cold weather more often than in warm weather. If your battery is toward the end of its life, it might not make it through the season. Have your battery checked now and replaced if needed.

 

Check Your Tires

If you want the best handling and efficiency possible this winter, then you need to make sure the tires are in great condition. Check the tires to make sure the tread is deep enough and that they show no signs of wear. You’ll also want to keep an eye on the tire pressure all season long, since cold temperatures can cause the tire pressure to decrease.

 

Check Your Brakes

Brakes are always important, and especially when you’re driving on surfaces slick from precipitation. Bring your vehicle to Paulding CDJR to make sure that your brakes are fit for the winter season.

 

Use Winter Wiper Fluid

Did you know that there’s a windshield wiper fluid designed specifically for the wintertime? This winter wiper fluid is made to withstand extreme temperatures, so it won’t frost on your windshield like regular fluid might. This is an easy DIY maintenance step that will make a big difference during winter driving.

 

Prepare an Emergency Kit

You should always have an emergency kit in your car, with tools like jumper cables, a spare tire, jack, and a first aid kit. This kit is all the more important when the weather is cold, and can be enhanced with winter-specific additions like blankets, hand warmers, gloves, a shovel, and snacks.

 

Wax Your Car

Waxing your vehicle isn’t just about making it look great—it’s also about protecting it from paint chips that lead to rust spots. Road salt and other debris make the winter a time for these types of damages, and a pre-winter wax can protect your vehicle from such things.
