WINTER DRIVING TIPS
Adjust Your Speed for the Road Condition: Remember, no matter how good your pickup truck tires are, and even if your vehicle is equipped with all-wheel drive and antilock brakes, you’re still limited by the road conditions. None of the above will fully compensate for a slick, icy road where sudden braking and emergency maneuvers can lead to a loss of control if your speed is too high.
Make Sure You Have the Right Tires: For many climates, good all-season tries will cope with rain and the occasional minor snowfall. But if you live somewhere that experiences regular accumulating snowfall, see the Certified Service experts about winter tires to help you get through winter weather safely. For optional performance, remember to have your tires rotated regularly and put your summer tires back on after the threat of winter weather ends.
Check Your HVAC System: The Certified Service experts can perform a Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection and check the condition of hoses, engine coolant, the cabin air filter and other vehicle systems, before winter sets in.
Have Your Battery Tested: Winter wether is hard on batteries. A marginal battery might start your car or truck just fine in October, but the first real cold snap might be the last straw for a battery that’s past its useful life. The Certified Service experts will check your pickup truck’s battery and connections.
Check Your Wiper Blades: Have the Certified Service experts check and replace your wipers if needed to make sure they’ll work properly when you need them. And, if you live an area that experiences sub-zero weather, they can help ensure that you have washer fluid that has the lowest possible freezing point.
