Make Sure Your Car Is Ready for all That Holiday Driving

Well the holidays are here, which usually means extensive holiday driving for a lot of folks. With that said the team here at Auto Clinic of Franklin wants to ensure that your vehicle is ready for all those highway miles you have to cover. We have put together some important tips to help you prepare for all your winter driving.

For starters, certainly snow, ice, frigid temperatures and winter weather in general can do some pretty noticeable damage to your car’s paint and body. We highly recommend you apply one or two coats of wax before winter is in full bloom. This will help your car to shed any water, ice or snow accumulations and protect your car’s finish.

Next, be sure to have your tires rotated about every 7000 miles to ensure the wear is even. It makes good sense to have your tires rotated on each of your oil changes. We also suggest you have the inflation levels checked before winter weather makes its presence known. In addition, it is a good idea to have your vehicle aligned before you start all that highway winter driving. Poor wheel alignment causes a dip in your fuel economy and will contribute to uneven tire wear as well.

Some further simple tips for winter driving include changing your windshield wipers before the elements start to take a desperate toll on your car. You may also want to give a quick application of Rain-X to your windows and windshield before you start your winter season driving since it can help your winter visibility a great deal. The fluid levels in your vehicle are also critical to your car’s performance in the winter weather. Oil changes, a transmission fluid flush out and a coolant flush are some of the more common and regular preventative maintenance tasks you should adhere to.

The holidays are by far the most favorite time of year for so many people. Visiting family and friends during the holidays and adding to your family memories is something we all take a great deal of pride in.
