In the winter, collisions in Chicago often increase due to the unsafe weather conditions and due to the fact that vehicles haven’t been properly maintained. Winter car maintenance is absolutely essential in the Chicago area if you want to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the road. An improperly maintained car will experience reduced traction and increased stopping distances, which can mean the difference between avoiding an accident and getting into one . Ensure your safety and the longevity of your car this winter by applying the essential winter maintenance tips in the video clip.
For every 10 degrees of temperature change, your vehicle’s tires lose approximately 2 pounds of air pressure. Driving on under-inflated tires will undermine your vehicle’s handling abilities and traction, and will greatly decrease the overall life of the tires. Check the tire pressure once per month to prevent improper inflation. For optimal safety and vehicle longevity, have the brakes checked and get your engine oil replaced with fully synthetic motor oil. Watch the video for more winter maintenance tips.
