With the cold winter months fast approaching, it’s important to consider whether your vehicle is ready. It doesn’t matter which vehicle you have or the amount of driving you do, winter vehicle maintenance isn’t something that should be overlooked. If it is, you could find that the ice and cold is too much for your car to handle.
Is Your Vehicle Ready for Winter?
- Check Your Tyres – It’s important that your tyres provide enough grip on the road during the winter, as ice and rain can cause skidding and slipping. This is why you should check that your tyres have enough tread. Alternatively, you can swap to specialists winter tyres.
- Create a Winter Breakdown Kit – Though you can breakdown at any time of the year, breaking down in the winter is a lot more common as the roads are more hazardous and vehicles struggle with the additional strain of the cold weather. It’s important to have a winter breakdown kit to hand, to ensure that you are safe and warm whilst you wait for assistance. A winter breakdown kit should include food, water, a torch, a blanket, a scraper and some form of de-icer. After all, you don’t know how long you’ll be waiting.
- Check the Battery – It doesn’t matter how new your battery is, there’s always the chance that it can fail when the temperature drops. To avoid being stranded and unable to drive, check the battery and replace it if necessary. Even the best batteries can struggle in winter.
- Have Your Car Professionally Serviced – Make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive this winter with a professional car check. This will allow you to relax, knowing that an expert has checked everything over before you head out and drive.
