The heater and defroster must be in good working condition for passenger comfort and driver visibility. If you have any issues, now is the time to get this looked at by your dealer. Stay warm and see out of your windshield.
Batteries typically last 3-5 years, and winter time failures are common due to increase cold-starting electrical loads. The best way to identify a weak batter is with professional test equipment. Routine care can help make your battery last longer.
Winter has less sunlight so your headlights will be on much more often. Inspect all lights and replace and burned out bulbs.

Cold temps are hard on rubber components and when salt comes into the mix, it deteriorates even faster. Make sure you check the wiper fluid, too! Start winter with a fresh set and feel confident that you’ll be able to take on the salty slush.
Carry emergency gear –
Gloves, boots, blankets, flares, a small shovel, sand or kitty litter, tire chains, and a flashlight. Also keep snacks and water just in case.
