Winter can do a number on your car. Make sure you’re ready for the cold weather ahead with these tips on how to winterize your Honda to help you drive safer during the winter.
Switch to winter tires. Winter tires are made with snowy and icy roads in mind. They have special tread designed to give you a better grip on the road during winter weather. Switching your all-season tires to winter ones will keep you in better control of your car.
Check your battery. Cold temperatures can cause your car’s battery to lose its efficiency. If you have an older battery, now is the time to get a new one so you don’t find yourself stranded with a dead battery.
Keep an eye on your tire pressure. As the temperature drops, so will your tires’ pressure levels. Routinely check your tire pressure to ensure that you don’t run the risk of a blowout or losing control while out on the road.
Make sure your fluids are level. From your windshield wiper fluid to your anti-freeze, make sure all necessary fluids are at the appropriate level before the temperature drops too much.
Change your windshield wipers. Good visibility is critical when you’re driving. New windshield wipers will battle the snow and ice you might experience during the colder months better than old ones, providing you with the best sightlines possible.
