Get Your Vehicle Ready for Winter with These Tips
The awesome folks here at NYC MotorCars know that the most dangerous season of the year for drivers and travelers is rapidly approaching – wintertime. More accidents happen during these three months than any other, and that’s why we wanted to put together this little guide to help our friends and neighbors make sure that their vehicles are safe and prepared for the falling temperatures and wet and icy roads:
1. Have Your Engine Performance Inspected and Evaluated
Things like a stalled engine, sputtering when starting, and rough idling will only get worse in freezing temperatures if ignored.
2. Check Antifreeze, Coolants, and Other Fluids and Lubes
Failure to have the proper levels of motor fluids can result in anything from poor performance to a seized-up engine.
3. Make Sure All Lights and Signals are Operational
This includes headlights and lamps, brake lights, and any other indicator systems.
4. Inspect Battery
1 in 4 batteries are on the verge of going out and winter weather only hastens the process.
5. Get Your Tires Serviced
Having the proper inflation, along with good balance and plenty of treads is critical to grip and traction, especially on cold, wet roads.
