Get Your Vehicle in Shape before the Bad Weather Hits Whiteland

October 15th, 2019 by

It won’t be long now before the really cold days get to Whiteland. And while you may have gotten your HVAC serviced or dug out all of your warmest clothes, have you prepared your car for the colder temperatures on the way? Now is a good time to focus on some key areas for maintenance, including:

Tires

Late fall and winter weather means snow and ice, and lots of it. That’s why you have to be sure that your tires will give you the traction you need to stop safely. You may also want to think about putting snow tires on before it really starts to fall.

 

Battery

Without a good battery, your Mazda SUV may not be able to take you anywhere. You should think about having your battery tested now because they have to work harder in cold weather. And when you add in the fact that you could be using several high-power systems once – like the heater, headlights, and windshield wipers – you’ll understand why winter can be tough for your battery.

 

Headlights

Speaking of headlights, this is another crucial component during the winter. Shorter days mean darker days, and you have to be able to rely on your lights to cut through the murk.

 

Windshield Wipers

Once the freezing rain, sleet, and snow arrive, how confident are you that your wipers will clear all of that for you? If you have your doubts, a new pair is inexpensive and can be installed pretty easily.

If you’re concerned about any of these areas, our Mazda service center can check out your vehicle and make sure that it’s in great condition before the bad weather arrives.
