4 Tips to Winterize Your Car
- Check the battery – The battery slows down in cold temperatures. Have a mechanic run a battery load test to see if you need to clean up any corrosion or to replace the battery.
- Change your wiper blades and refill your wiper fluid – Wiper blades are only good for a year. Top off fluid reservoir with a brand that has a low freezing temperature.
- Check your tire pressure – For every 10-degree drop in temperature, your tire’s air pressure will drop about 1 psi. Inflate the tires to the correct psi for safe traction in winter conditions.
- Stock your car with emergency supplies – You’ll never know when you’ll get stranded, be prepared. It could save your butt one day!
