Winter Car Prep Tips for Drivers

person cleans frozen windshield - winter car prep

Is it December already? As temperatures drop, you might want to take the time to get some winter car prep time before the freezing temperatures of January and February move in. Extreme cold can have a big impact on the inner-workings of your vehicle, so it’s best to be prepared.

Check Your Fluids

It’s best to have your vehicle in top working conditions during the colder months so you have one less thing to worry about. Keep your gas above half a tank, top off your oil, keep an eye on your coolant, and next time you get your car serviced…

Switch to Winter-Grade Oil and Wiper Fluid

As part of your fluids check, you should definitely switch over your oil and windshield wiper fluid. Winter-grade oil will be more effective in freezing temperatures, and the wiper fluid you use year-round might freeze on your windshield in extreme conditions.

Gauge Tread Depth and Tire Pressure

Having good grip between your tires and the road is crucial in hazardous road conditions. Cold also makes tires deflate faster, so keep on top of your tire pressure.

Pack a Winter Emergency Kit

Accidents still happen even if you stay on top of maintenance and do everything right. In those cases, you should have things like blankets, water bottles, a flashlight, and other emergency supplies packed and in your trunk.

Winter car prep will help you and your vehicle get through the cold winter months easier and safer than ever.

Mitsubishi Outlander Safety Features Protect Pizza Drivers During Super Bowl

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander

If you caught the latest Mitsubishi Super Bowl ad, you might’ve been wondering: are they really going to live tweet a pizza delivery driver? Believe it or not, Mitsubishi actually did, just to prove that it has one of America’s safest CUVs.

According to Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi Outlander safety features are some of the best on the market, one of the reasons it was an IIHS Top Safety Pick +. Equipped with Forward Collision Mitigation and other advanced technologies, avoiding accidents is easier than ever.

Because of the terrible conditions in Boston, Mitsubishi was concerned about the hard-working pizza drivers, especially during the big game. “During the biggest sporting event of the year, nobody has more to lose than one man – not the players, not the coaches, not even the advertisers spending millions and millions of dollars,” read Mitsubishi’s ad. “We’re talking about the pizza guy.”

It might seem odd at first, but Mitsubishi makes a good point. Not only will people want their pizzas as quick as possible, but people rarely stop to think about the real expense of ordering food in bad weather conditions. By giving one lucky driver the new Mitsubishi Outlander, he was as safe as possible during the big game.
