With winter right around the corner, now is a great time to check your vehicle. You can contact us and we can alert you for what you need to have done for maintenance on the vehicle. You can also check in the vehicle owner’s manual of the car. There are several things to check, including the tires of the vehicle. You will want to make sure that they are properly inflated to the correct air pressure. Also remember to check the tread wear on them so that they can grip the surface of the road properly. If the tread has worn, you may notice poor handling with the vehicle.

 

Also make sure that the heater and window defroster are working correctly. As you go to start the vehicle to warm it up, you will want to turn the heater and defroster on for your vehicle as well. This will help you to warm up the windshield and interior of the vehicle. It will also help you to scrape the windshield as well. Having the rear defroster on will also help to clear the rear windshield. You will want to make sure that all the windows have the best visibility possible when you drive.

 

Check the tires of the vehicle regularly. As it gets colder, you may notice a decrease in air pressure of them. You will want to make sure that the tires are properly inflated. Doing so will help them to wear evenly as you drive. If the tires are not properly inflated, you run the risk of them blowing out or picking up sharp objects on the road. You will want to also make sure the tread wear is correct. If the tread is too shallow, then there will be poor handling on the road when you drive. Whenever there is an issue you notice, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible.
