Cold weather is settling in, and it’s time for a few winter auto maintenance tips for drivers in Marysville. Prepare for our wet and windy Pacific Northwest winters by following these simple bumper-to-bumper tips for BMW & Mercedes.
Since most all-season tires are made of rubber compounds that don’t work well in winter driving conditions (the compound hardens at low temperatures), it’s best to buy tires made exclusively for winter driving. Winter tires are made of rubber compounds that stay soft in low temperatures and are significantly more effective in snow and rain.
Brakes should be on the list of regular Mercedes or BMW service any time of year, but they’re especially important to check during the winter months. The Pacific Northwest is notorious for black ice, and when you hit it you need to be ready. Have your brakes inspected by a certified professional before the cold season hits. It could mean the difference between a close call and a disaster.
Check Wiper Blades
Often overlooked but just as critical is the need to check your wiper blades. Your car may run well and grip the road like no other, but if you hit a sudden rain or snowstorm and your wiper blades aren’t able to effectively grip the windshield, you’ll instantly lose your line of vision.
Have Battery Tested
Of all vehicle maintenance tips, this is the easiest to follow because you don’t necessarily need to do anything yourself. Take your vehicle to a certified professional who can test it (often for free) and tell you if it’s fit for the coming winter.
