Although winter hasn't hit us in full force quite yet now is the time to make sure our cars are ready for the cold weather.

Most people in this area know their cars need different care depending up the season but preparing for winter seems to be the most crucial in order to avoid getting stranded in below zero temperatures. Lithia ford technicians suggest always reading the owner’s manual for your vehicles because different cars require different care. What may have been good for one may not be for the other. Sometimes do it yourself fixes such as cardboard behind grills to keep cool air out might be hurting more than helping. Many things can be done to get your car ready for winter as well as done during winter to keep your car looking and running great. Technicians say to also pay attention to your windshield wipers as well as get underbody washes to stop rust from forming on your car.
