With cold weather on the way, now is a great time to double-check your vehicle’s winter worthiness. Start by ensuring that your vehicle is serviced. Testing your battery, topping off your fluids, inspecting your brakes and checking all your lights ensures that your vehicle is running tip-top and stays capable, as well as visible.
Double-check your vehicle gear, ensuring that you have warm clothing and footwear. It’s also important to have a quality set of jumper cables on hand, as well as a good flashlight. Headlamps are perfect as they allow you to be hands-free during something like a tire change.
Speaking of which, now is a good time to double-check your pressure on all tires, including your spare. Carry a full-size spare if possible, but above all, ensure that you have the equipment necessary to change a tire.
These are just a few things you can do to prepare your vehicle for the colder months and ensure you don’t become stuck as the temperatures drop.
