Essential Winter Car Maintenance Tips From Abra Auto, Madison, Wisconsin

Regular maintenance is one of the top responsibilities of owning a vehicle. However, when the temperature drops and the winter elements start to arrive, it becomes even more essential to make sure that your vehicle is well maintained. Abra Auto is the nation’s most reliable automobile repair shop, and for good reason; the mechanics will ensure that your vehicle is in tip-top condition for what might be a brutal winter.

Here are a few helpful tips from Abra Auto on what you should consider when preparing your vehicle for the winter:

  • Check Your Antifreeze. This is an essential part of your car’s winter protection, providing juice for your radiator. Before temperatures really drop, check to make sure your antifreeze level is close to 50/50. This is typically free at most auto repair shops.
  • Inspect Your Tires. Roads will naturally become slippery when it gets cold. Check the treads on your tires to make sure they are safe for winter weather conditions. Don’t forget to check your tire pressure as well, as tires tend to lose a little pressure when it gets cold.
  • Replace Your Wipers. Between the leaves of fall making their way onto your car, and snowstorms, you will want to ensure your wipers are ready for the job. The mixture of snow, dirt, sand, and salt can be hard on wipers that are a few years old and dangerous when driving.
  • Check Your Windshield Wiper Fluid. Chances are you’re going to need a good amount of wiper fluid. Don’t wait until you run low! Pick up an anti-freeze windshield wiper fluid and be prepared.

Don’t get stuck this winter! Stay safe and schedule maintenance services with your local Abra Auto this winter. Call 1-888-USA-ABRA for more information on their auto repair services.
