Don’t Let Costly Repairs Ruin Your Christmas
Winter driving is tough on vehicles for a lot of different reasons, so let’s go over a few vehicle repairs and inspection items that you’ll want to address before hitting the road.
Chestnut roasting on an open fire…. Christmas music is on the radio, Santas are in stores, which means that before long, you’re going to be thinking about holiday travel.
Winter driving is tough on vehicles for a lot of different reasons, so let’s go over a few things that you’ll want to address before hitting the road:
- Make sure your antifreeze is up to the challenge
Choose an antifreeze that is made for colder climates. Ask us to check your coolant’s freeze point to ensure it’s winter-appropriate —and have us flush out and refill your antifreeze at least every two years
- Steer clear of thick oil issues
Check your owner’s manual for guidelines on the ideal oil to use. Your car manufacturer is by far the best resource for determining the best motor oil for your vehicle.
- Check headlights, indicators and brake lights
- Check all fluid levels
- Get regular maintenance
Small issues can become big problems sooner or later. Just a few dollars you invest in maintenance will go a long way toward saving you thousands of dollars in the future particularly this Holiday season.
