How to prepare your car for colder temperatures

Colder temperatures are slowly creeping up, and with them comes the maintenance that your car needs to be healthy and function correctly—especially if you are traveling to a northern state during the holidays. Check out some tips on how you can prepare your car for the upcoming weather.

The main thing you can do to help keep your car safe from colder temperatures is making sure it has the proper maintenance done. It’s always a good idea for you to get vehicle maintenance done as the seasons change anyways, so who knows, you may already have this vehicle service scheduled!

For those who are traveling out of state, there are a few extra precautions that you can take. One is changing your tires. If you aren’t planning on staying in a colder state for long, all-season tires will probably work. However, if you find yourself frequently traveling, you may want to invest in snow tires. Either way, make sure your tires aren’t worn down, and double check the air pressure, as air contracts the cooler it gets.

If you are planning to go on any long trips, you may want to get a tire rotation and an oil change as well. This helps with the wear and tear that comes from driving a vehicle and should be done regularly anyway.
