With temperatures dropping, now is a great time to make sure your vehicle is ready for the winter. Here are Five Quick Car Care Tips to prepare you for the winter:

1) Check your Tires
• A good test is to take a coin in the tread and if you see the top of his hair on any part of the tire, chances are it's time for replacement
• Rotate your tires every other oil change
• Make sure they are inflated to the manufacturers recommended pressure

2) Check your Fluids
• Coolant and washer fluid should protect you to at least -20 below

3) Check you Air Filter

4) Check your Wiper Blades
• Wipers should be changed every year

5) Make a Winter Emergency Kit
• Include items such as a snow brush and ice scraper, an extra gallon of washer fluid, jumper cables, a blanket, and a bag of sand or kitty litter
