Follow These Winter Car Care Tips by Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Missoula

Now that winter is here, it's important that you prepare your car for harsh conditions, such as ice-covered roads, frigid temperatures, and heavy snow when you're driving around Missoula. At Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Missoula, let us help you prepare your vehicle for winter with these tips.

Make sure that all your vehicle's fluids are at optimal levels. Have your car's defroster and climate control system checked. The defroster will prevent the windows from icing up, and the climate control system helps keep the cabin warm. Try to keep your gas tank full because this can prevent water accumulation from turning into ice, and having a full tank of gas will help keep the cabin warm if you get stranded.

It's absolutely necessary to have your tire pressure checked as winter sets in, which is because cold weather can cause the tire pressure to drop. If your tires have low pressure, then it could cause tread separation and lead to a serious accident.
