Winter is coming, which means it’s time to start getting your car ready for Toronto’s colder weather. These tips will help you get your car winter ready so it continues to run smoothly no matter the temperature.
Change to winter tires. Ice, snow, and freezing rain are all normal winter weather in Toronto. This means the roadways can be difficult to navigate. Battle slick streets with winter tires, which will give you the best traction possible. Just stop in at Avenue Nissan, and we will switch your all-season tires out for your winter ones.
Be ready for anything. You never know when you might
find yourself stranded on the side of the road. Be prepared with an emergency
kit. Make sure your car has tools and items that will help if you find yourself
on the side of the road, including a shovel, a flashlight, a bag of sand,
flares, jumper cables, ice scraper, and warm clothing.
Make sure your battery is in good shape. As the
temperature drops, so does your battery’s efficiency. Check your battery is
working properly and replace it if it’s time for you to get a new one.
Top off your car’s fluids. Make sure your car’s
fluids are all at proper levels, especially your windshield wiper fluid and
your car’s antifreeze.
Warm weather is finally here, which means flowers are blooming and people are getting outdoors to stretch their legs. This also means it’s time to make sure your car is ready for the spring. Here are a few spring car maintenance tips you should consider to keep your car running smoothly.
Remember to take care of routine maintenance
Every several thousand kilometres, you should bring your vehicle into Avenue Nissan for routine maintenance. Use the warmer weather as an excuse to get your car’s oil changed, a new oil filter, and a tire rotation so your car can keep up with your spring adventures.
Change your windshield wipers
Spring weather means rain, which is why it’s important that your windshield wipers are in top-notch condition. Ice can cause your wipers to crack or break in other ways, which is why the spring is such a good time to replace them. After all, having the best visibility possible when you’re out on the road is important!
Take care of your tires
Colder weather can do a number on your tires. As the weather warms up, you might find that your tires’ pressure increases. Make sure your tire pressure remains within the manufacturer’s recommended range. Also, check your tires’ tread to ensure you have a good grip on wet roads, and switch out your winter tires for all-season or summer tires.
