3 Simple Ways to Winterize Your Vehicle

frost covered windshieldWe know Georgia weather too well to believe winter is well and truly here, but last weekend’s cold front has reminded us that fall weather isn’t endless. Some Woodstock car owners are already winterizing their vehicles. With the Southern cold snap bringing flurries below the Mason-Dixon line and projections of another #Snowpocalypse circulating the internet, we’d suggest taking care of winter car care now instead of later.

3 Ways to Prepare Your Car for Winter

  1. Check under the hood. Car trouble in the dead of winter can have disastrous concequences. Keep your family from needing to rely on Atlantan good samaritans by getting your engine, transmission, battery, fluids, and tires checked before the temperature drops for good.

  2. If the #Snowpocalypse taught us anything, it’s that it pays to be prepared. Before cold temperatures and brisk winds become the Woodstock norm, double check the emergency roadside kit in your trunk. A basic emergency car kit should contain non-perishable food, water, blankets, emergency flares, jumper cables, a flashlight, and a spare phone charger.

  3. Wax up. A good pre-winter car wax will protect your vehicle from winter contaminates, from common winter dangers like frost to infrequently seen troublemakers like road salt. For the best protection we’d recommend a full auto detail, but every car owner should at least wax their car before temperatures drop too far this fall. Auto wax is most effective when applied between 50 and 85 degrees.
