How To Winterize Your Car

As fall gets underway, it’s time to start thinking about doing some maintenance that will help you, and your vehicle, get through the cold months without issue. Here’s how to winterize your vehicle!

# 1 – If you’ve still got your wipers on from last winter, it’s definitely time to get some new ones. Visibility is extremely important, especially when there’s snow and ice on the ground. This is something people tend to put off because wipers can often be tricky to put on. We at Pantili Mitsubishi would be happy to assist you.

# 2 – Some people like to use special winter tires during the cold weather months. The treads on winter tires are designed to stay soft even as temperatures plummet. This increases traction. Just be sure to replace them when it starts to grow warmer. The tread on winter tires can get damaged when temperatures are too warm.

# 3 – Make sure your battery is in good working order. When you stop by Pantili Mitsubishi’s service department to get your new wipers, ask us to test your battery. There’s nothing worse than being stranded with a dead battery in the dead of winter.

# 4 – Put together a winter roadside emergency kit. You should include things like food, blankets, an extra hat and gloves, and a portable crankable USB Cell Phone Emergency Charger—and anything that might seem useful were to break down in the winter.
