FIVE WAYS TO WINTERIZE YOUR COMMUTE

1. Make sure you have a heavy-duty ice scraper and snow brush in your vehicle.
2. Cold weather reduces tire pressure, so check tire pressure often. See your Owner’s Manual for directions and details.
3. Check your wiper blades. Cold temperatures can make blades brittle, and ice on the windshield can cause nicks in the blades, decreasing their performance.
4. If you’re planning a trip, take a blanket, warm clothing, a collapsible shovel, a bag of road salt and an extra bottle of windshield-washer fluid.
5. Put on snow tires if you live in major snow-belt areas. Check your vehicles Owner’s Manual for details and recommended practices.
