3) Inspect your tires. Tires are the one thing that could help you from running into that mountain, tree, or scared deer. Now is not the time to get cheap about your tires, especially if you deal with harsh winter weather in your area. The National Highway Transportation Safety Board says you need at least 2/32" of depth to be safe. Be sure to check the tire pressure of your vehicle, as they lose pressure when it gets cold.
4) Check your anti-freeze. Your car contains a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. Make sure the level is full and the mixture is close to 50/50. Many service stations and repair centers will check this mixture free, or you can buy a tester for around $5. wilsonville mercedes owner
5) Inspect your brakes. Like tires, it's not smart to get thrifty when it comes to your brakes. Be sure they are in top shape to get you through the season.
