Denver, Colorado is known for cold weather. There are several car care tips that you can follow in order to prepare for all of the weather changes in the fall as well as preparing for the winter. The more you do now, the easier it will be to manage the weather changes as well as the road conditions as they happen.
Battery: Your battery needs to be replaced every few years because it doesn’t usually give any kind of warning sign of failing. You can also prepare for the colder weather by making sure that the connections are tight and clean.
Tires: There may be a lot of snow and ice on the ground. If your tires don’t have the right tire pressure and tread depth, it can be problematic. You may want to switch to special winter tires to be prepared.
Brakes: Have your brakes checked, including rotors and drums.
HVAC: Have an HVAC inspection conducted so that you know the heating system works properly.
Wiper Blades: Your windshield wipers are responsible for clearing ice, sleet, snow, rain, and more out of your viewing area. In the fall, you want to replace your wiper blade so that they are capable of wiping away everything so that you have a clear view.
It can be advantageous to talk to your local mechanic about a personalized schedule for your vehicle. This way, you will be able to ensure you’re bringing your car in for service whenever it is required.
