Winterize Your Ride IV

Windshield Wipers

When it’s snowing or raining, your lifeline to visibility is your windshield wipers. While it may seem like common sense, it is of vital importance that your windshield wipers are working and that you have plenty of wiper fluid in the tank to get to where you need to go. Most wiper blades should be replaced once a year, as they become worn and cracked during the colder months. Check yours and make sure that they don’t need to be replaced.


The battery is critical, but while it may seem obvious to most, many people go out in the cold weather and have not checked their battery’s levels. The problem with a battery is that it gives little to no notice as to when it is going to break down and die. It simply stops working and stops taking a charge, leaving the owner stranded and confused.

For this reason, have your battery tested by your mechanic or by any certified automotive repair facility. They can measure your charge and ensure that you have plenty of juice to get to where you’re going. With the cold winter months upon us, you do not want to be stuck out there without a battery charge or power to your vehicle.
