Winter Preparations

Winter can be harsh on your motor vehicle. With that in mind, I have a few tips to consider, before winter sets in.
1. Have the Oil Changed in your motor vehicle.
2. While your motor vehicle is being serviced, make sure that the Auto Technician checks the Anti-Freeze. He or She should be looking at the Freeze Point, Corrosion Protection and the percentage of antifreeze to water. It should be a 50/50 mix. You can purchase a pre-mixed Anti-Freeze at your local auto parts store or any reliable garage.
3. Insure that your tires are properly inflated and that the tread is good. It may be necessary to change over to snow tires.
Lastly, make sure that you consult your motor vehicle's owner manual for any considerations due to the type or make of your vehicle, in the event there are any special requirements needed to be addressed.
