Winter is on its way, which means that now is a great time to pull out your seasonal maintenance checklist and start crossing off a few items. Staying on top of winter maintenance is crucial because it allows your car to perform better, last longer, and overcome some of the struggles that can come with cooler weather. So, if you're ready to whip your car into shape for winter, we recommend taking a look at our tips for winterizing your vehicle.

Battery

Temperature can have adverse effects on your car battery, so it's always a good idea to check your battery when the seasons change. Blistering summers can sap your battery's power and weaken its internal components, which can cause trouble later and cause your car to have trouble starting. So, it's important to schedule a battery check in winter to reduce the risk of a breakdown.

Tire Pressure

As temperatures drop, so can your tire pressure. Improper tire pressure can cause a host of issues ranging from excessive tire wear to poor traction, and none of them contribute to safe driving. So, we highly suggest checking your tires periodically to make sure their pressure levels match the recommended levels in your owner's manual.

Tire Tread

Weather can get a little dicey in winter, so it's especially important to keep an eye on your tire tread to make sure your tires are in good enough shape to provide you with the traction you need. Driving on worn tires can be a safety hazard because a lack of adequate tread makes it harder for your tires to gain the grip they need to stop effectively, especially on slippery streets.
