4 Car Care Tips for Extreme Weather

Depending upon where we live, we may have brutally hot summers, Arctic-like winters, or regular torrential rainfalls. No matter where we find ourselves, we – and our vehicles – are likely to face extreme weather conditions for some part of the year. You need to know how to maintain your car for your particular brand of Mother Nature.

Key Takeaways:

  • Depending on where in the country you live, if you want to get through the winter months disaster-free, you’ll need to be prepared for anything.
  • If your battery is three years old or more, consider replacing it right away, because you don’t want to be stuck with an immobile car on a hot day
  • When most people think of driving in harsh weather, they may think of snow or ice. While these hazards are serious, driving in heavy winds can be just as dangerous.

“When temperatures go down, many things can happen, but the one you should always keep at the front of your mind is that the air pressure in your tires will be lower in cold weather than in hot.”
