It is pretty exciting to get a new car. If you got your car at a new car dealership in Saco ME, you may be wondering how it will manage through the harsh winter in Maine. Here are some basics of winterizing your car.

Windshield Wipers – Before winter comes, check the wiper blades for cracks and notice if any water is left on the windshield during rainstorms. If so, replace them. Carry extra washer fluid so you don’t run dry. Also, if snow is expected overnight, lift up the wipers so they won’t stick to the windshield.

Winter Tires - Consider changing to winter tires. They will make more noise than all season tires but the added safety is worth it.

Oil Viscosity – Make sure you have the right engine oil. At the last oil change before winter, have the filter replaced, too.

Allow the Engine to Warm Up - This is necessary for the moisture in the exhaust system to evaporate. Just so you know, revving the engine does not make it warm up faster.

Protection – Wax the car before winter and wash it regularly. Also, before winter comes, buy some floor mats. Even cheap ones will protect the carpet from water, mud and salt.

Emergency Kit – Keep cat litter in the trunk in case you get stuck. Your emergency kit should have water, snacks, flashlight, batteries, blanket, gloves, boots, and first aid supplies.
