Keeping your car healthy and safe this holiday season

Winter is here, and it’s just the beginning. Staying on top of your routine car maintenance is essential to a safe holiday season.

At CarCare To Go, we are passionate about keeping your vehicle at peak performance, and these basic tips are sure to keep you on the road into the New Year.

 1. Check Your Fluids — A routine oil change may be at the top of your list, but cold weather makes it important for you to maintain other fluids as well. This includes anti-freeze to keep your engine components protected in extreme temperatures, brake fluid to ensure you can come to a safe stop in slippery conditions, and potentially wiper fluid with de-icer to give yourself maximum visibility in hazardous conditions.

 2. Tires — Colder air likely also means a drop in tire pressure. Not only can salt and melting snow mean more debris around your tires, a leak or puncture can quickly turn into a serious and expensive problem. Regularly check the pressure of your tires, and keep an emergency patch or fill system on hand.

 3. Battery — Winter is a challenging time for batteries and keeping them clean and charged is important. If you’re traveling for weeks or months at a time, consider detaching your battery and storing it in a safe indoors location to prevent battery drain.

 4. Emergency Supplies — Finally, the most important accessory your vehicle has; it’s driver. Protect yourself in the winter months and plan for emergencies that may have you stuck for hours or overnight in your vehicle. Keep an emergency box handy in your backseat with a blanket, flashlight, emergency phone charger, and non-perishable food and drinks like granola bars or bottled water. Keeping a small jug of sand, cat litter, or anti-friction mats can also help you get out of a slippery situation — even if it’s just your driveway.

Did you know CarCare To Go offers a complete end-to-end safety inspection with every single service? Whether you are redeeming a holiday gift card for hand-detailing or for a major repair, each time you trust us with your vehicle our mechanics inspect every component of your vehicle and document concerns with clear explanations via photo and video for you to keep.
