We know, we know….we just entered Fall, so why are we bringing up Winter already?
Well you can never be too prepared. Plus, if you plan to travel anywhere outside of the Monterey Peninsula as the weather grows cooler, you may enter driving conditions often seen in Winter, like snow, sleet, hail, and rain.
You can avoid many dangerous winter travel problems by planning ahead. Have maintenance service on your vehicle as often as the manufacturer recommends. Every Fall, you should do the following for each vehicle you own:
Have the radiator system serviced, or check the antifreeze level yourself with an antifreeze tester. Add antifreeze, as needed.
Replace windshield-wiper fluid with a wintertime mixture.
Replace any worn tires, and check the air pressure in the tires.
Once your car is ready for Winter, you won’t need to worry about it. During winter, especially if you drive to the mountains for ski season, keep the gas tank near full to help avoid ice forming in the tank and fuel lines.
If you have any questions about preparing your car for Winter, just ask. The service team at Robert’s Collision & Repair will be happy to assist you by answering your concerns, schedule a maintenance service, set you up with a rental car as needed, detailing service, tire service, auto body service, and more.
