Car Maintenance Tips for Winter


The winter months bring joy and warmth as we reconnect with family and enjoy the winter weather in the Scottsboro area. At Harbin Automotive, we want to ensure you have the best holiday possible. With that, we are offering up some car maintenance tips as we enter the holiday season. Learn how you can keep your car running smoothly through the winter below.

Winter Tires

A quick and easy way to prepare your car for Dutton winter is to put on winter tires. While all-season tires can handle some wintery conditions, its best to put on winter tires to handle difficult terrain. Regular tires do not react well to cold weather, as the rubber hardens with low temperatures, leading to poor traction. Winter tires are specifically designed to maintain proper traction on snow, ice, slush, and dry pavement.

Tire Pressure

Your tires can fluctuate one PSI with every 10-degree change in outdoor temperature. So as temps drop and rise in Hollywood, take the time to check your tire pressure to ensure you’ve got what you need. Most vehicles provide a tire placard indicating the proper tire pressure for your vehicle’s tires.

Winter Wipers and Washer Fluid

Snow and ice will coat the windshield of your vehicle, and your normal wipers won’t be able to clear it. Installing winter wipers is the way to go. These wipers have a rubber strip, preventing ice build-up. Plus, make sure your windshield wiper fluid is full, because a demanding patch of winter weather can deplete your fluid quickly.
