Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter in Broomfield

Winter brings snow, slush, traffic, and road closures and delays to all of us here in Broomfield. The cold season also can create many rough road conditions, marked with potholes and icy patches that can cause damage to your vehicle or create situations that give rise to accidents and auto damage. This winter, here at Sill-TerHar Motors, we want to help you better prepare for winter driving. That said, here's a list of helpful tips to abide by this season to help you make the most of it while on-the-road!

Winter Driving Tips

 

  • Check Your Tires: Make sure your tires have enough tread depth to handle the hazards of winter driving so you don't spin out or cause damage to your vehicle, your passengers, or others on-the-road. Consider switching to dedicated winter tires.
  • Check Your Coolant: Your car's coolant, or antifreeze, helps it maintain a proper running temperature during the winter months. Check to make sure your coolant level is sufficient and your vehicle's cooling system itself is in good shape.
  • Carry an Emergency Survival Kit: In case you get stranded or stuck in traffic or road delays, it's a good idea to have an emergency kit with nonperishable food items, blankets and other things to keep you warm, water, and first-aid supplies.
  • Keep Up With Maintenance: From brake service to oil changes to getting that windshield wiper fluid switched to a winter washer fluid, keep up with routine maintenance.
