It’s that time of year again, the leaves are almost down, Thanksgiving has come and gone, Christmas will be here before you know it, and so will winter! Now is the time to start thinking about preparing for the winter months. In the Northeast most people seem to either love or hate the snow, but everyone should be prepared for it. Preparation is the key to a safe and enjoyable winter, especially when it comes to your vehicle. You need to be prepared while on the road, and if you should find yourself off the road! Start by having your vehicle serviced by your local certified service center. In most cases a routine oil change will include a “multi-point inspection.” The inspection is a good overview of the vehicle’s overall health and is provided at no charge. Coolant levels, battery health, wiper blades, washer fluid, tire condition, tire pressure, belts and hoses all become that much more important in the winter months. It’s extremely important to get these items checked out and fixed if necessary. Failure to address recommended service issues can significantly increase your chances of mechanical failure and accidents. Let’s remember its winter and its cold; you don’t want to get stranded! You are also going to want to be prepared should you find yourself off the road, broken down, etc. It’s a good idea to keep an emergency kit, an ice scrapper, gloves, a blanket, and whatever else you may need should emergency services not be able to get to you. Spend the time and money to be prepared and have a safe and enjoyable winter driving season!
