Winter is coming to Central Oregon and that’s obvious especially when you wake up in the morning to find that your windshield needs to be scraped after another cold night.
With more snow only a few weeks away it’s important for every driver to get their vehicles ready for winter in Central Oregon by following these tips.
Check Your Tires
You should invest in a pair of studded tires right now because; in a few months they will be more expensive. Studded tired are important because, they will give your vehicle more traction for driving during days where it’s snowing outside or the roads are icy and you have to get to work or the store. Although studded tires aren’t always necessary on most roads around Central Oregon they do come in handy when driving in towns like Sunriver or Madras Oregon.
Inspect Your Wipers
They only cost a few dollars but the investment pays off when you change your wiper blades because, new wiper blades will insure that icy slush isn’t left on your windows after you use your wiper blades to wipe away ice or snow on a cold day.
Have Your Battery Checked
Get your battery checked NOW to make sure that it has a full charge and will be ready for those cold winter days because, the cold weather can kill a battery very easily and there’s nothing more frustrating than getting stranded on a cold, snowy day because you have a dead battery.
Create A Car Survival Kit
The most important thing you should add to your vehicle this winter is a survival kit because, if you get stranded on a road due to ice or snow this winter, a survival kit will save your life. Your kit should include a blanket, water, flashlight, one day worth of food, warm jacket and pre-paid cell phone so you can call for help.
