The Georgia roads can become precarious during the winter months. As you layer up for the cold weather, remember your vehicle also needs protection from the elements. To keep your car ready and your passengers safe, prepare your vehicle for dropping temperatures before it’s too late.
Our professional technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Sandy Springs are here to help with any concerns you have and winterize your vehicle so you can drive with peace of mind during the holiday season.
Replace Windshield Wipers
If you’re an experienced driver, you’ve probably noticed windshield wipers need regular replacement. The rubber on wipers tends to become damaged, deteriorating until the wipers become completely useless. This is now a good sign for winter when low visibility is a big concern. If your wipers are worn down, get a new set to make sure your windshield stays clear.
Using wiper fluid on your windshield will make it far easier for your wipers to clean off water and grime. The fluid can also help the wipers in breaking up snow and ice that may accumulate on your windshield.
Test Your Defroster
Another threat to visibility is moisture inside the vehicle condensing on the glass, filling your windshield with fog and making it difficult to see the road. Defrosters blow warm, dry air across the windshield to remove this condensation. If your defroster isn’t working properly, however, it could be due to air leaks around the doors and windows or even an AC system problem. Have your car checked out if the defroster seems to be ineffective.
Check Belts and Hoses
There’s no harm in having our local Sandy Springs technicians check the belts and hoses around the engine just in case. Cold weather often weakens the belts and hoses, consequently causing them to snap and break. Get ready to call a tow truck for rescue if a belt snaps on you while you’re on the road. We say it’s better to be safe than sorry! Schedule a check-up with our Sandy Springs auto repair shop to make sure your belts and hoses are in tip-top condition.
