Prepare Your Hempstead Honda for Winter!
Get ready for a Hempstead winter by preparing your vehicle! Cold weather requires extra care when it comes to getting from here to there behind the wheel. To make sure your Hempstead Honda is ready for winter, continue reading!
The first step in getting your vehicle ready for a Hempstead winter is rotating or replacing your tires. Think about replacing your current tires with winter or snow tires if you live in an area with heavy snowfall.
The second step in preparing your car for the winter months is performing a fluids check. The most important fluids to check on are the engine coolant, antifreeze, and windshield wiper fluid. Consider topping off these fluids and keeping some extra on hand in case you run low in a time of need.
Routine maintenance is more important than you may think. Before the first heavy snowfall, make sure to have an oil change performed. You may also want to replace your windshield wipers if they are getting old. Properly functioning windshield wipers can make all the difference on snowy, cold days.
A good wash and wax will get your car ready for the snow, slush, and salt that it will come into contact with. Don’t forget to get a wash and wax after driving in slushy, salty conditions to prevent your car from rusting prematurely.
In case of an emergency, it is best to prepare a cold weather kit. Assemble your kit with blankets, non-perishable foods, water, kitty litter, ice scrapers, and an extra coat and gloves.
