Battery

Car’s battery must be checked for making sure that it works the best. Attention! Even if a no maintenance battery gives you the sensation that it is ok, you must check all its properties. If you used the car more in city, with many consumption (electric windows, air conditioning, etc.) it’s time to say “Goodbye” to your battery.

Antifreeze liquid

Antifreeze liquid is necessary to be change in the warming/cooling installation. You will take a ride at the service to complete or change (after chases) the antifreeze liquid, which must be put it in a certain concentration, according to car’s producer specifications and not to be change by yourself.

Winter tires

Don’t fool yourself by thinking that “all-season” tires are the solution, because winter is not from “all-season” category. Winter tires assure you good trajectory, stability and a better brake in emergency situations.

Fuel additive

On a full gas supply you must put a bottle of fuel additive, too into your car tank that will keep your gas away from ice crystals and help you to start your engine quicker.

Windscreen washing liquid must be replaced with a specialized and homologate products for winter conditions, having its freezing temperature under -30 Celsius degrees.

Windscreen wipers

Windscreen wipers must be in good “shape”, too. My advice it is to buy homologate products, not cheap one that you can find on any road.

Other accessories

In this category enter: one brush or sweeper to move away the snow, something to clean your windscreen of ice, shovel, chains, current nipper, and sand sack. For extreme chases you might need all these stuffs. Take into consideration all these advices and I assure you that is going to be the easiest winter for you! I wish you a good journey and full tank gas!
