Winter-proofing is essential if you want your vehicle to survive wintertime. The money you invest in minor repairs now will keep your car running throughout the season. Start by replacing your batteries, significantly if you have not changed them in over three years. This is also an excellent time to replace deteriorating tires and check the pressure of the existing ones. You can also invest in right quality winter tires that will keep you safe on icy inclines and wet roads. Lastly, invest in a set of good quality windshield wipers so heavy snow stays out of your sight.
