Prep Your Staten Island Mazda for Winter!
Winter is here, which means the roads are icy and snow-covered and the temperature has dropped. These conditions can make driving more difficult, so be sure to prep your Staten Island Mazda for the winter! For tips on how to winterize your Mazda, continue reading this blog post.
The first step in getting your car ready for winter is checking your tires. Your tires are a crucial part of your vehicle during the winter. Be sure your tire pressure is just right by using a gauge to measure. Your vehicle’s specific, ideal tire pressure is on the driver’s side car door, as well as the owner’s manual. If you notice your tire pressure is dropping frequently, you may want to consider replacing your tires. If you do replace your tires for the winter, think about snow tires to be extra prepared.
Once your tires are ready, check out your windshield wipers. If your wipers are old, you may want to replace them for the winter. Windshield wiper blades are a must have when snow, ice, and salt come into contact with your car. You should also check to make sure your windshield wiper fluids are topped off.
An emergency kit is a smart way to prepare your vehicle for a potential emergency. Pack your winter emergency kit with blankets, spare coats, sand or kitty litter, an ice scraper, a spare tire, a first aid kit, and extra windshield fluid.
Next, make sure to have your heating and cooling systems checked. You want to be sure your heat is working this winter to stay safe and comfortable when driving.
