Getting Your Vehicle Winter Ready

Regular maintenance is required to have a well running vehicle – but it’s especially important to make sure everything is up to date before cold weather hits.Here’s a few simple things to make sure your vehicle is winter ready.

Fluids

All vehicles needs proper lubrication in order to work properly. From washer fluid to antifreeze. Windshield wiper fluid is a necessity, clean oil (I always suggest getting an oil and filter change at the start of winter) and top off fluids like transmission fluid and coolant.

 

Brakes

The last step to making sure your brakes are working properly – I suggest that you get them checked by a certified mechanic at your local dealership like East Hill Chevrolet to test your brakes, brake pads, discs, and rotors so that you can be confident in your vehicles ability to stop when needed!

Tires

A lot of us are guilty of overworking our tires- but this is one thing you cannot just let go. This isn’t your roots ladies or nails that need done – tires are very important to the performance and safety of your vehicle. Check the tire tread and see if they are worn, monitor your tires monthly (and if the weather is changing a lot – warmer then colder then warm again) check the tire pressure each time you fill up your gas tank.And of course definitely check them out before a long trip.
