Winter weather in Texas can be erratic, a wonderland or a nightmare. Though snowfall isn’t a big concern and a light coat might be all you need, there’s still the possibility of icy conditions on the road. You want to be prepared for whatever the winter might bring this year, so get your car winterized before the temperatures drop.
At Christian Brothers Automotive Buda, near Kyle, we want to make sure your season of travel is safe and fun, even in the colder conditions. Today, our auto technicians in Texas want to let you know about a few things you should keep in mind this winter so your car stays safe until spring.
People sometimes forget to take care of the windshield on their vehicle. However, if you have ever been behind a large vehicle that’s tossing up snow, water, or grime, you know windshield washer fluid is a must. Washer fluid is most efficient if it contains an antifreeze solution, as this will stop your windshield from freezing when it gets cold.
Texas winters aren’t typically that rough, at least not enough to necessitate purchasing snow tires. However, it’s still important to check that your tires have enough tread. Regardless of conditions, you always need tread on your tires to drive safely, but it’s especially important during colder months. During the winter, your tires will have to take on hazardous, wet conditions and they can’t do it without tread.
No matter how prepared your car is or how excellent a driver you are, not everyone on the road will be. Accidents will always happen eventually. To be even more prepared, create an emergency kit to keep in your car. We also recommend keeping a blanket in your car in the event you have to wait for an extended amount of time for roadside assistance.
