1. Keep fluid replaced and refilled
This is the best place to start to ensure that your care can handle inclement weather conditions
  • Coolant
  • Oil
  • Wiper Fluid

2. Inspect or replace your tires

  • Low air in pressure in tires can be dangerous on wet or slick roads by reducing traction. Be sure to check your owners manual for a PSI.

3. Cold weather & battery capacity

  • The cold weather reduces battery capacity
  • Inspect your battery, cables, terminals, and fluid

  • Check your battery fluid by uncovering the refill hole
  • Know your manufacture date on your battery

An ideal kit includes the following:

  • Flashlight
  • Blanket, leather gloves, and hat
  • Bag of kitty litter or sand
