During the winter months, driving can be stressful even under sunny skies. When roads are packed with snow, temperatures are cold and the weather can change quickly, it’s important to know that you’re prepared for winter driving. Here are three ways you can prepare.
Get Snow Tires Installed
Snow tires can improve your winter driving safety for all makes and models of cars, including Subarus. They have a unique tread that makes them good for increased traction on slushy and snowy roads. The rubber construction of snow tires is also engineered to retain great performance and avoid getting brittle in very cold temperatures.
Check the Battery
Cold weather saps your battery’s strength and can leave you with a hard time starting your car. Your trusted mechanic can inspect your battery and evaluate whether it’s operating at a strong enough power level to get you through the winter reliably.
Change Your Windshield Wipers
Being able to see clearly through the windshield can be a challenge when a winter storm moves in and heavy rain, sleet, ice and snow lash your car. Investing in a new pair of windshield wipers helps push precipitation away quickly and completely so you have a better view of the road.
