4 Fall Car Tips
The fall is one of the least harmful seasons on vehicles. That is why it is the best time to prepare your car for the brutality of the winter. Use this time wisely because before you know it, it will be too late. If your car isn’t fully prepared for an Indiana winter, you will be sorry. We are here to inform you of the necessary steps you need to take!
Scratches and imperfections on your car’s surface will be exposed by the ruthlessness of the winter elements. Freezing rain, sleet, snow, and ice can cause rust to form on the exposed areas. Rust diminishes the value of a car significantly! Fixing those scratches and adding a protective layer on your car’s surface can save you big bucks in the long run.
Check Out Your Tires
Indiana winters are notorious for mounting snow and ice on the roads. If the tread on your tires is not up to par, you could be in trouble when the first snow storm hits! It is not a bad idea to invest in a set of snow tires. Your treadless tires may not be causing you any harm right now, but that is why the time is now to handle that potential problem! You should also check the pressure in your spare tire just to be safe!
Emergency Clothes and Equipment
If your car were to break down right now, you would be fine in this weather waiting for the tow truck or a friend to pick you up. In the winter, that is a different story. It is important to have a coat, hat, socks, and a blanket to keep you warm in a situation where you could be stuck out in the freezing cold. Also having a water and snacks in the car are some things that you will be happy you had handy. A key item to have stored away in your car is an ice scraper. Ice can form in a short period of time. Being away from home with an ice cover windshield and no way to remove it can be very frustrating.
Put in Floor Mats
The easiest way to keep your interior clean is by having floor mats that you shake off outside the car. It will give you peace of mind knowing however dirty somebody’s shoes are, that your interior won’t be harmed. The winter snow can make any yard messy. If you don’t protect your interior floor with a mat, you are bound to get stains.
