Get your tires checked before winter hits

It will not be long until winter with all its fury will be upon New Jersey. We prepare our wardrobe for winter, we check our homes to ensure they will be warm, but often we forget that our cars need to be prepared as well.

First of all, you should have your battery checked. Have a mechanic check the fluid and the voltage. Get the fluids changed, such as oil and antifreeze, and make sure your windshield wipers are in top condition. All these preventative maintenance items can make sure you're warm and safe.

One of the most important items on your vehicle is the tires. You would never want to be outside in the snow with worn-out shoes. In the same way, you don't want to be caught by mother nature driving with worn out or under-inflated tires.

You may want to invest in snow tires if you frequently drive in tough conditions, and you can even buy tires with studs. Checking the air pressure and the tire treads for wear will let your know how worn your tires are. And don't forget: if you do start to slide on an icy road, do not slam on your brakes! Turn into the skid until you come to a complete stop.

Jaguar Morris County in Madision, NJ wants you to be safe. Contact our service department and make an appointment to have your car checked out before winter comes.
