Winter is definitely here and it has brought some cold weather. However, we know that it could get worse. Those really cold temperatures can actually cause some issues with our vehicles. We’re here to help you learn how to prevent your vehicle from falling victim to these cold-weather problems.
Defrosting your windows may be one of the most frustrating things you have to do during winter. Somehow you always end up forgetting to turn your car on and it’s usually when you’re in a hurry. Then you have to sit and wait. I’ve heard of a lot of people who think it’s wise to speed the process up by pouring super hot or boiling water on the windshield. This is not the fix! This can cause your windshield to expand and crack which is a much bigger issue than waiting for it to defrost. Instead, create a mixture of vinegar and water in a spray bottle. This mixture can prevent ice and frost from occurring on your windshield if you spray it on before the temperatures drop at nice. If your windows are already iced over you can spray the mixture over it to help speed up the thawing process.
Always have your battery inspected before winter hits. Cold weather does the most damage to our batteries and the last thing you want is to end up stranded because your car won’t start. Auto stores can do a quick battery check to ensure that it is still in good condition.
