Driving in the winter is different than driving during the rest of the year. This is because you have to deal with the snow, ice, and frost as you drive. It is always important to bring your vehicle in so it is properly maintained. If you are not sure how often the vehicle should be brought it, make sure to contact us and we can recommend a schedule for you.

 

One of the first things to inspect on the vehicle is the condition of the tires. The tires are the only part of the vehicle that will make direct contact with the surface of the road. You will want to make sure that the air pressure is correct. Tires that are over inflated or under inflated can cause poor wear to them. This is because the vehicle will need to use more fuel and energy to have the tires rotate correctly when you drive. If the tires are under inflated they might be more prone to blow out when you are driving. Tires that are over inflated can be more likely to pick up sharp objects on the surface of the road. If you are not sure what the proper air pressure amount should be, make sure to contact us. We can inspect the tires for the correct air pressure and also what condition they are in.

 

Also remember to inspect the windshield wipers on your vehicle. The wipers are important because they will allow you to see clearly when you drive. They will help to clear off any road grime and dirt that might be on your windshield. If there is dirt or debris, it could impair your ability to see the road in front of you as you drive. If you notice the windshield wipers are not clearing the windshield efficiently, it may be time to invest in new ones. This can also help to make your drive more pleasant. If you ever notice anything out of the norm with your vehicle, make sure to bring it in as soon as possible so we can fix the source of the issue for you.
