Get your car ready for Winter driving
In Seattle that means Rain!!
Here are some helpful hints to get you and your car ready for the rainy season.
Proper tire care is the key for handling those Wet winter roads.
Check your tire pressure and rotate your tires. Replace tires now if they are getting worn. Tire information for your car can often be found on a sticker in the door jam or side of the glove box sometimes on the inside of the fuel door.
Clean all your windows inside and out take extra care to make sure they are smudge free and clean.
Replace your wiper blades forget checking them just get new ones. Any other part of the country I would say check them see if they are worn but around here its best just to get new blades this time of year. Its not like you wont be using them.
Check all of your lights including blinkers and brake lights. On those over cast rainy days you want to telegraph other drivers of your intents and this may be all they can really see of your car.
Tip: To check bulbs by yourself tape some foil up to your garage door then check all your blinkers and lights simply by checking the reflection in your rear view mirror.
Have your Cooling system winterized you can do this yourself or take it to a good service repair facility like the Burien Honda service center.
Keep your gas tank toped off or near full as much as possible running it at or near empty can not only potentially put you in a bad situation but also make it easier for moisture to accumulate or in extreme cold actually freeze your lines.
Put together an auto safety kit include such items as Flares, a reflective triangle, a blanket and some dry clothing.
You may also want to carry a flashlight,a first aid kit and maybe a couple of energy bars and some bottled water.
Most of all be careful slowdown and leave a little extra room between you and the car ahead.
