Winter Car Tips Can Be Heeded Even in Lubbock


Snow is a rarity here in Lubbock in the winter. But, we still get winter regardless. Some tips, we should all abide by, even if we don't see the white stuff falling from the sky. You might travel to a place over the holidays that has snow. Whatever it might be, being prepared is a good thing, which is why we have a list of things to consider when getting ready for winter with your car.

  • Checking your lights all around the vehicle, from the headlights to fog lights and taillights is important because this obviously if going to help improve visibility and safety in bad weather
  • You also want to make sure your battery levels are good, and if it's running low, consider getting a new one, because you want your vehicle to be able to start every time in the cold
  • We also recommend keeping your vehicle in a garage if you can, as that keeps the battery warm. There are also battery warmers you can get that do the same thing
  • Check your coolant and anti-freeze levels and ensure they are good, because that's going to help when it comes to starting the vehicle after a long period outside in the cold
  • You should also check your washer fluid levels to ensure there is enough, and it doesn't freeze over
  • Always keeping plenty of gas in your fuel tank is also important, as it helps heat your vehicle
  • Where there's lots of snow you should own a set of winter tires, which give you added grip and traction and much more confidence
  • Make sure your defrosters work, because you'll need them on those cold days to get ice and snow off your car
  • Keep a survival and first aid kit with you in the trunk or somewhere convenient. Include items like water, blankets, and a flashlight so you're covered in case of an emergency
