Getting Your Vehicle Ready for Winter

  1. Change Your Oil
    Regular oil changes are something every area driver should do. It’s recommended you change your oil about every 5,000 miles. Although this can vary by vehicle, so check your owner’s manual to be sure. When you change your oil before the cold really hits, you can opt for a different viscosity range. Allowing oil to flow faster in the cold.
  2. Check Your Tires
    We know many of our area drivers have two sets of tires, one for summer and one for winter. Don’t forget to switch them out. Winter tires allow for better handling in snow and ice and could help keep you and your passengers safer. If you have all-weather tires, make sure to check your tread and consider a rotation.
  3. Test Your Battery
    The last thing you want is to get stranded from a dead battery. Cold weather can cause your battery to drain fast, and because of that, you’ll want to get it tested. In doing so, you can ensure your vehicle starts up when it should.
