Winter in Toronto can really do a number on your vehicle. From deflated tires to dead batteries, you want to be sure to follow these tips to get your car ready for winter.
Put on the winter tires. Ice, snow, and rain are expected throughout the winter months, so you want to be sure your vehicle’s tires can handle the weather. Stop by and see us at Lexus Downtown to get your winter tires so you can get better traction on rough roads.
Be prepared. Whether the snow has buried your front bumper or you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, you need to be prepared. Pack emergency tools that will help when the temperatures drop, including a flashlight, shovel, jumper cables, ice scraper, a bag of sand, flares, and an extra set of warm clothing.
Check the battery. When the temperatures drop, so does the car battery’s ability to charge. If you’ve been waiting to get a new battery, do that now so you don’t find yourself stranded with a car that won’t start.
Fill up the fluids. Top off the fluids your car needs to help make winter easier, including windshield wiper fluid and anti-freeze. This will help your car stay in working order, no matter how cold it gets.
If you’re not sure how to best prepare your car for the chill of winter, feel free to give us a call or stop by and see us at Lexus Downtown.
