It took a little while, but it finally seems like winter weather is upon us. As nighttime temperatures dip below freezing and daytime highs hovering in the 40s and 50s, it may seem an unlikely time to wash your vehicle.
But one last wash and wax can add a layer of protection against winter precipitation, not to mention the icy, salty mess that other vehicles can sling as we make our way across roads and interstates.
It’s just one area of protection your car or truck needs to keep you safe this season, and Advance Auto Parts has all the supplies you need to check off all the items on that winterization checklist.
Check your tires for excessive wear. And grab a tire pressure gauge at Advance to make sure those tires are properly inflated. As temperatures cool off, so does the air inside those tires, and you may need to add air.
District General Manager Michael Puckett invites you to stop by the Raleigh Road store or the store just off Dabney Drive if you need help to check wiper blades or batteries.
It takes just a few minutes to check a battery, and the folks at Advance will be happy to replace most vehicle batteries; some are recommended to have a professional installation, Puckett noted.
And while they don’t usually check to make sure the antifreeze is adequate for the cold weather, Puckett said he’s happy to help a customer take a look at it to tell whether it’s ok. There are several sizes of testers at Advance to help vehicle owners determine if they have the proper strength of antifreeze.
A few quick maintenance checks – with the help of the team at Advance Auto Parts – can save a wintry headache down the road.
For all your automotive needs, be sure to visit your local Advance Auto Parts or shop online at AdvanceAutoParts.com.
