Winter Vehicle Care
Keeping a well maintained vehicle during the winter is extremely important, as winter conditions have already taken hold in the area and will likely get worse before the winter is over.
Exposure to cold temperatures, snow, sleet, ice, and salty roads take a toll on vehicles. Cars, trucks and SUV's require some maintenance services to get them through our cold, harsh winters. What should your ideal winter car care plan be? Check the list of car care tips for below for simple ways to keep your car running great throughout the winter and beyond.
Winter Car Musts
#1) Checking or replacing vehicle tires
Some areas don't get plaed as often and as quickly as others. Many smaller city streets are lined with parked cars, keeping the plows from easily clearing the streets and making it hard for salt to be applied. No matter where you live, it’s important to prepare your car for driving on either rural or city streets that haven’t yet been treated.
Your tires are where your car and the road meet. Make sure your tires are winter ready by checking the tread and pressure. If tire rotation or replacement tires are needed, we’re here for that too. Call AAMCO Overland Park today to set up an appointment.
You know that regular car washes are important during the winter, but so is waxing. Waxing is a winter car care staple providing an extra barrier between your car’s paint and the harsh winter elements. It also helps keep your car looking great, despite the salt and sludge that come with winter.
#3) Windshield Wiper Care
Windshield wipers are vital during rainstorms, and for winter weather driving as well. Your wipers keep your windshield clear when ice and snow build up while driving. Your defrost helps give you a clear line of sight, but your windshield wipers do all the work on those miserable weather days where windshields ice over even as you’re driving.
