Default Simple Ways of Making Your Car Ready For The Winters

The first thing to keep in mind is to thoroughly check the ignition, brakes, tires, filters, battery, wiring, hoses, fan belts, windshield wipers in your car.

Also examine the various fluid levels, especially the antifreeze.
Next is to check and ensure that your car’s windshield wiper fluid contains a rain-repellant or deicer solution. Also clean the inner side of your windshield and windows with an anti-fogging solution.

Carrying a properly inflated spare tire in your car is also important plus make sure to carry other things like jack, shovel and jumper cables as well.

It’s always good to carry emergency kit with you while going out that compiles of basic things like flashlight batteries, waterproof matches, first aid kit, flares or reflective triangles, string and scissors. Keep some warm clothes too with a blanket, extra coat, socks and other essential things in case you need them if get stuck in middle.

Another very essential point to keep in mind is to carry a fully charged cell-phone with you and making the family or friends aware of where you are going and when you are expected to be back.

Before heading towards a long journey check the fluid levels, tire pressure and the battery of your car, all need to be in good condition and up to the mark so that your journey is safe and secure.
