How to prepare your car for winter

Once you have taken care of all the big maintenance tasks, there are smaller things to consider when prepping your car for winter. Here are a few tips from Giles & Iten Insurance to make sure you are ready for the winter weather:

  • Ensuring your tires are correctly inflated is essential, as this can significantly improve traction and reduce fuel consumption.
  • Tire treads should be checked frequently to ensure they meet safety standards; winter conditions require more grip than summer.
  • You should also inspect your windshield wipers and replace them if necessary – during the winter, road grime and rain will put extra strain on these vital components.
  • Finally, check that all lights are working so you remain visible on the roads at night or during poor weather conditions. If any of your bulbs need replacing, now is a great time to do it!

Having your car ready for winter keeps you safe and increases your vehicle’s longevity. Taking a few extra steps can ensure you remain safe and warm on the roads throughout the season. By taking care of these small tasks and the larger maintenance jobs, you can be confident that your car is prepared for whatever winter throws at it! Investing just a bit of time now will save you time, money, and hassle down the line. So check those items off your list before colder weather arrives!
