There’s no shortage of precautions that can be taken to prepare a vehicle for winter. One of the most important first steps to take is reading the owner’s manual for your vehicle and making sure that it’s received all the recommended services listen in its maintenance schedule. Regardless of weather, these routine services will dramatically increase a vehicle’s expected lifespan.

From there, drivers should check each component of their vehicle and see if it needs addressing before winter starts. If the engine is stalling or operating roughly, it should be taken in for service. Similarly, drivers should check their vehicle’s various filters and see if they need to be replaced. Drivers should also test their vehicle’s heating system before the temperature starts to fall.
