  • Prepare your Honda for winter with the following tips

    Prepare your Honda for winter with the following tips

    Winter is at our doors even if we can’t feel it right now. We are already in September, and soon snow and ice will cover the roads while salt, sand and the cold weather will test our vehicle.

    Fortunately, if we are well prepared, it is possible to get through winter with relative ease. So here are some tips to help you prepare your vehicle for when winter arrives.

    Think winter tires first

    First of all, you have to make sure your winter tires are in good condition. You can use a special tool to check their wear level, or the good old 25 cents thing. You can also think of how your tires were behaving last winter. Typically, winter tires last between three and four seasons depending on their use. If your tires are finished, or you do not think they will survive the winter, it is better to replace them immediately.

    Inspection and maintenance are key

    Once you have settled the tire question, you must ensure that your vehicle is in good mechanical condition. Cold, snow, sand and salt are not kind towards your car, and the harsh winter conditions can quickly worsen any problems already present. It is therefore important to have your vehicle inspected before the arrival of winter, and to have it serviced as well. You want to inspect the battery, most notably.

    Make sure you can see

    When you are certain that your battery is in good condition and that your vehicle doesn’t have any problems that haven’t been addressed, it is time to make sure that you will be able to see through winter. Winter wipers will become very useful and effective in removing accumulated snow, and you will also want to make sure you always have an extra washer fluid container in your hand.

    In addition to these three elements, why not make sure you also have an emergency kit in your vehicle? This should contain salt, shovel, warning signs, warm clothing, non-perishable food, a cable to charge your cell phone and a first aid kit.
