The winter weather means that you will have to change some driving habits. The most important thing to do is to be aware of both the road conditions and the weather conditions. If either is in less than ideal condition, make sure that you remember to slow down when driving. When the roads are in poor condition, slowing down will decrease the chance of losing control of the vehicle. Make sure that you go at a speed that you are comfortable with. If you are driving slowly, you should put on your hazard lights so people will be aware of a slower speed.
You will also want to remember to bring your vehicle in for proper maintenance. This can increase the longevity of your vehicle when you own and drive it. When the vehicle is inspected, we can look at all the parts and components to ensure they are operating correctly. If they are not, you will want to make sure that it is fixed and repaired as soon as possible. Anytime there is an issue that you notice, it is recommended to call us. This will help decrease the chance of the problem causing other issues to nearby parts as well.
Tasks to Do
There are some important tasks that should be done as well. You will want to check the tires for the proper air pressure. In the winter, the cold temperatures decrease the air in the tires. By checking them regularly you can help ensure they are at the right amount that you need. If a tire is going low on air often, contact us. We can set up and appointment to inspect the tires. There may be a nail or puncture mark that you might not see. The tires are the only part that make contact with the surface of the road, so make sure that they are in the best condition possible.
