1. Make Sure You Have the Right Oil

It is recommended that you get your oil changed as you enter the colder months so that you can switch to a thinner oil, typically 5W-30. A thinner oil allows your engine to keep lubricated and prevent it from being sluggish, while a thicker oil – like the one you’d use in warmer months – can get thicker in cold and prevent proper lubrication. So, make sure you should get the right oil for your vehicle depending on the weather!

2. Replace Your Windshield Wipers

You need to make sure that you can see in winter storms or rain, and so changing out your blades for winter-specific wipers is a good idea! You should also make sure you get winter-grade wiper fluid to help break up ice and snow as standard fluid can freeze and make things worse.

3. Switch to Snow Specific Tires

Traction is key to having a great winter driving experience and so you want to make sure that you have the best possible tires to get the job done.
