Getting Your Car Ready for Frosty Mornings

As the temperature starts to drop, frosty mornings are just around the corner. In this blog, we discuss how to prepare your car to beat the cold mornings and stay safe.

Before Winter gets in full swing, it’s important to make sure everything is in correct working order. Firstly, as the cold mornings bring darkness, observe your headlights to make sure they are at full brightness. With the darkness can come a range of weather conditions such as rain, sleet and snow, that’s why you must carry out a check on your windscreen wipers to make sure they are doing their job properly.

Antifreeze is a main part in keeping your car functional throughout Winter, without it breakdowns are much more likely. Did you know that one of the main reasons for breakdowns over Winter is because people haven’t got any Antifreeze in their car? You may need to top this up over time with a mixture of water and Antifreeze.

Your car battery not working correctly can lead to certain breakdown. Before the damp and cold weather comes along, now is the perfect time to check the efficiency of your battery. Here at Off Rhodes Garage we offer a full battery check and can replace the battery if needs be, just in time for Winter.

Remember to stay safe and take extra caution, weather conditions can be very different so make sure you take extra precautions to stay safe. Such as checking for black ice before you set off and making sure you have full visibility. Adding a bottle of De-Icer is crucial on frosty mornings plus parking your car in a garage or placing a cover over your windscreen can also stop the cold from affecting your car.
