There is no getting around winter, but there are numerous ways for you to get yourself and your car ready for it. Fall is a wonderful time of year to make all the necessary adjustments and preparatory changes to your vehicle, as you want to make sure they are done before the first major rain or snow storm hits.
Tips for Winterizing
The first step to ensuring your car is ready for winter is to take it to your local Long Beach Toyota auto repair shop or dealership. Have them check out your battery, antifreeze level, thermostat, heater, and defroster. Having an expert look over your car and checking if all these parts are in good, working condition will help you stay warm and comfortable in your car during winter. A non-working heater or weak battery may make for a miserable trip home from work on a chilly night.
The next step is to check your car's tires. Make sure they all have adequate tread and are filled to the appropriate levels. Some of you may have all season tires, which giving them a thorough look over should suffice. Others will have two sets of tires; snow and regular. Make sure to take your tires to your Toyota dealership to get them rotated out before the first snow hits.
Check your vehicle's lights to ensure they are not cloudy and are working properly. It is also a good idea to test out the hazard lights, just in case. Double check that you are using a windshield wiper fluid designed for freezing conditions, as using one that is not made specifically for colder weather could cause a major problem while on the road. With this, look at all the spray nozzles of your windshield-washer system to ensure they are not blocked.
It may also be a good idea to keep sandbags and kitty litter in the back of your car when driving in winter conditions. Sandbags can help weigh down your car so you are not sliding on the ice, and kitty litter may come in handy if you are every stuck and need to create traction.
