Maintaining Your Vehicle in the Winter

When you're driving in the winter months, there are a few things that you can do to provide the proper care for your vehicle. Since the sun sets earlier in the day, you need to examine the lights on your vehicle to ensure that you can clearly see while you're on the road.

Colder weather often strains the battery in a vehicle. One that is weak in the summer could leave you on the side of the road in the winter. Consult with a technician at MINI of Portland to have your battery tested as well as the other electrical components so that you're ready to drive anywhere in the winter months ahead.

The fluids in your vehicle are important to check as well. Make sure your antifreeze is full as this will keep the lines from freezing when it's cold outside. You should also check your washer fluid to see that it's full, adding a defrosting liquid for when your windshield is covered in ice.
