Windshield Wipers 

With all the snow and ice that will be on your windshield this winter, you’re going to need a new set. If your windshield wipers have been lack luster lately, it’s time to get some new ones. Make sure that you maintain your vehicle by replacing parts like these. 


When you are driving in the cold for long distances, it can hurt your tires. When they lose air, you lose fuel efficiency. Don’t make your vehicle work harder for you in the winter. Make sure you have air in your tires and rotate them before the toughest part of winter comes. Snow tires aren’t a bad idea either. 

Oil Change 

General maintenance rules still apply in winter. Make sure you get your oil change when you need to. Your vehicle needs to be in top condition to perform this winter. Don’t forget to take care of your car while you’re on the snowy and icy roads this year.
