No one wants to break down in any season, but especially not in cold or snowy winter weather. Start the season off right by ensuring your vehicle is in optimal condition.
❄ Visit your mechanic for a tune-up and other routine maintenance.
❄ Have your entire vehicle checked thoroughly for any leaks, bad hoses, or other needed parts, repairs, and replacements.
Check your battery. When the temperature drops, so does battery power. Also, be aware that it takes more power to start your vehicle in cold weather than in warm. Find out if your battery is up to the challenges of winter by:
❄ Having your mechanic check your battery for sufficient voltage;
❄ Having the charging system and belts inspected;
❄ If necessary, replacing the battery or making system repairs, including simple things like
tightening the battery cable connections.
