Saving you money by getting your car ready for winter

South Bend Warm weather will be in Michiana this weekend making it the perfect time to get things in order for the winter months. One of those big tasks is getting your car ready.

AutoZone is one of the shops that can help you make sure your car is up to speed for the winter. A few things you want to look out for going in to the colder months is tire pressure. When you change temperatures you pressure changes as well. Make sure you change your wiper blades. Folks at AutoZone say you should change them about twice a year.

Take time to look at your battery and make sure you have winter wiper fluid in your car and not water. If you have water in there that could freeze.

If you are a big driver during the winter and brave the snow, you may want to look into having a safety kit always in the back seat.

“Having the emergency kit, yeah it doesn’t have everything you need but it has the majority, especially a blanket is good to keep in your car just in case you do get stuck. When we have a lot of snow it takes a while for tow trucks to come and get you”, says store manager Kristen Balint.

AutoZone offers a lot of free services. They check your engine, test and change your battery, install wiper blades and change head and tail lights all for free. They say they can get you in and out in about 20 minutes.
