Preparing your Vehicle for Winter

Winter is just a few weeks away and we’re already anticipating the snowstorms we’re accustomed to in Western New York. Winters can be devastating to your vehicle and your safety while driving if you don’t prepare well enough.

Here are a few ways to get ready for winter:

  • Use winter windshield wiper fluid. Not many drivers are aware but windshield wiper fluid for summer is very different from the fluids used for winter. This fluid won’t freeze and will help keep your windshield clear of ice and snow.
  • Do a coolant and antifreeze check. This is a must before the winter starts. It’s in the name. Antifreeze will keep you and your car from freezing this winter.
  • Check tire pressure or switch to winter tires. At the minimum you must check your tire pressure before December rolls around but if you’ve been living in the Northeast for long enough you know that winter tires are the way to go if you want to stay safe on the road this winter.
