Winter road


So many accidents happen because drivers do not brake soon enough. In winter, that is an even bigger problem. If your brakes are not working as well as they used to, you should get them check out by a mechanic. If your brakes are squeaking and take a lot of pressure to slow you down, you should let the professionals take a look. 

Windshield Wipers 

Ice and snow are on the menu this winter. You’re probably going to scrap the ice off your windshield before you hit the road, so make sure your windshield wipers can do the work for you while you’re driving. Make sure you have enough wiper fluid and new wipers for the winter if you haven’t bought new ones in a while. 


General maintenance doesn’t stop in the winter. Just because it gets dark out sooner doesn’t mean that you should skip out on your vehicle’s maintenance. Make sure your tires have enough air, your oil is changed, and your engine and battery are working fine.
