Winter Car Care and Maintenance
Don’t be left out in the cold! Winter break-downs could leave you stranded on cold, snowy, slippery roads. Before the snow begins to fly, it is a good idea to make sure your car is in good safe working condition. You or your auto repair shop or local mechanic should give your car a thorough inspection and perform any needed vehicle maintenance to head off potential car trouble:
·       Check the battery
·       Check the brakes
·       Check fluids: antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, and oil
·       Check the heating and exhaust
·       Check tires for tread-wear and proper inflation
For added safety, keep emergency supplies on board in winter months.
·       Blankets

·       Jumper cables
·       Waterproof matches
·       A jar candle

A few minutes of thought and preparation now, will give you peace of mind and keep you on the road arriving safely at your destinations all winter long.
