Cold Weather Car Care

Baby, it’s cold outside!  Well, maybe not as cold as the Midwest, however, we did have frost on the roofs of houses today in sunny Arizona.

It’s time to talk about cars and winter-i-zation.  Yup, we get winter too.  And your baby needs some tender loving care.  Here is a short list to remind you to give her some extra love and attention before you find yourself stuck in wild tundra of Arizona!

1:  First aid kit:  Have you depleted it over the summer.  We bet you have.  Time to change out the summer stock and add the winter stock.

  • Band-aids
  • Neosporin
  • Ace bandage
  • Hand/Feet warmers
  • Blanket
  • Snacks
  • Water
  • Flint or another fire source
  • Alcohol pads
  • Cottonballs
  • Extra Sweatshirt/Coat/Mittens/Hat

2:  Windshield Wipers – check for wear.  Easy care for your car.  This last monsoon season was lengthy – it might be time for a new pair!

3:  Have you checked your jumper cables lately?  Are they still in your car?

4:  Fluids – time to check and recheck!  Car Care 101 for sure!

5:  Battery – how long has it been IN there???????????

6:  Tires – how is that tread treating you?

7:  Windshield; chips or cracks?  Did you go to California over the summer?  Do you have that fun disco ball effect from sandstorms?  Might be time for a new windshield or chip repair.

8:  Belts – are they tightened up?

9:  Brakes – are they squeaking?  Might be time to get em checked out!

10:  Lights; when is the last time you took a look around your vehicle to make sure all are working?


WOOHOO!  Care for your car and we will see you on your next adventure!
