How to take care of your car in winter
MAKE YOUR CAR UNDER WINTER TIME BY FOLLOWING THESE RECOMMENDATIONS
Our technicians have compiled for you some good reflexes to have with regard to his car by a biting winter:
Make sure that the defrost and ventilation of your vehicle is in good condition at the level of the windshield and the rear window of your car. Defective systems could significantly reduce your visibility and present potential risks of accidents;
Check the condition of the battery, which is known to be sensitive to changes in temperature. In cold weather, a weak battery is not able to recharge completely, which can cause startup problems. Drive a minimum of 25 kilometers on a road where you can travel without interruption to recharge the battery. If the result is not conclusive, it is time to replace the battery;
Use antifreeze washer fluid and check the engine coolant;
Make sure you have the necessary winter accessory kit to circulate in freezing temperatures at low temperatures: scraper, de-icing spray for windows, cloth and protection to cover the windshield;
Ride winter tires as soon as the mercury drops below 7 ° C. Snow tires have great flexibility despite the cold weather and have excellent grip on the ground. They also evacuate better the water on the sides. Attention, in some countries, the use of snow tires is mandatory;
Be sure to wash your vehicle regularly: the thawing salt is corrosive and attacks the bodywork, especially the tires and the sill. It also dirty the windows, reducing your visibility on the road;
Replace as soon as possible the broken bulbs of your headlights, turn signals and rear lights. Good visibility (“seeing and being seen”) is synonymous with security.
