Prep Your Car for Winter

A little preparation before winter sets in may help prevent major headaches later.

What you can do

  • Make sure you have a heavy-duty ice scraper and snow brush in your vehicle.
  • Cold weather reduces tire pressure, so check tire pressure often.
  • Check your wiper blades. Cold temperatures can make blades brittle, and ice on the windshield can cause nicks in the blades, decreasing performance.
  • If you're planning a trip, take a blanket, extra-warm clothing, a collapsible shovel, a bag of road salt and an extra bottle of windshield washer fluid.
  • Install snow tires if you live in an area where temperatures remain below 7°C for extended periods of time.
