The temperatures are cooling off and winter will be here soon. Let's look at a few ways to make sure your vehicle is ready to hit the road this winter.

Review your vehicle:

  • Check the battery, make sure it is in good working condition
  • Test the tires to make sure they have proper tread
  • Check the tires to make sure they are inflated to the right psi (this can fluctuate with changes in temperature)
  • Make sure the headlights and windshield wipers are in good condition
  • Brush up on how to use 4-wheel drive (if your vehicle has this option)
  • If possible, keep the gas tank half full
