At North End Motors, we want to make sure that your vehicle is ready for the harsh winter that’s coming. To do this, we’ve put together a winter-weather guide for your vehicle. Take these steps to ensure your safety on the road this winter.

Check Your Vehicle

The first thing to do is check all of the systems to make sure you don’t end up facing a mechanical breakdown. You should inspect the following components to ensure everything is working correctly.

  • Ignition system
  • Belts
  • Fuel system
  • Fluid levels
  • Exhaust system
  • Brakes
  • Wiper blades
  • Snow tires
  • Cooling system
  • Battery
  • Lights

If you aren’t sure how to inspect these elements, you need to bring your vehicle to us at North End Motors.

Things to Keep On Hand

Once your vehicle is inspected, you want to make sure that you have some necessary equipment in your vehicle for the unexpected emergency. This includes:

  • A charged cell phone and charger
  • Full gas tank
  • Jumper cables
  • Windshield scraper/brush
  • Extra windshield washer fluid
  • Extra antifreeze
  • Flashlights with extra batteries
  • Reflectors and flares
  • Warm blanket
  • Road salt or kitty litter for traction
  • Tire chains
  • Tow rope
  • Paper towels
  • Car fire extinguisher
  • Essential tool kit, including pliers and screwdrivers
  • Bottled water and snacks
  • First aid kit
  • Pocket knife

You want to create a space in your vehicle to hold all of these supplies, just in case you need them. You never know when you will encounter another driver in need as well.
