Keep your car clear in the winter weather

If you keep your car outside, it’s important to stay on top of maintenance during the winter. The hazardous conditions can be detrimental to your vehicle, so you need to make sure to stay on top of car care. One way to do this is by using heated mats on your driveway. It’s a good idea to melt all the snow and ice so it does not damage your tires.

According to the Boston Globe, you should clear all the snow, ice and dirt from your car and the surrounding area. The heated mats can help with this and reduce the amount you’ll need to shovel. Additionally, the mats can provide traction as you clean off your car.

You may also want to consider bringing your car into the shop from time to time to ensure everything is running smoothly, taking care of any fluids that need to be refilled and filling your ties with air.

Car Care suggests it’s important to take care of all the maintenance before the cold really sets in, as the weather can make it worse. Be sure you have a battery charger on standby in the event you drain it while trying to melt the snow and ice off your car in the winter weather.
