The Lifespan of Car and Hybrid BatteriesDecember 14, 2023
As winter approaches and holiday travel plans start to form, it’s essential to prepare your vehicle for the journey ahead. At Flash Auto, your safety is our primary concern, which is why we encourage all our valued customers to schedule a road check before hitting the road during the winter season.
Here are three critical areas we recommend checking:
- Oil: Oil is the lifeblood of your car. It keeps your engine running smoothly and efficiently. Before setting off, ensure your oil level is adequate. If necessary, get an oil change. Cold weather can thicken oil, making it less effective at lubricating your engine.
- Tires: Tire pressure and wear are crucial for maintaining traction on icy and snowy roads. We’ll inspect your tires for any signs of excessive wear and ensure they’re inflated to the correct pressure.
- Battery, Belts, and Hoses: Cold weather can be tough on your car’s battery and the belts and hoses that keep everything running. We recommend having these checked and replaced if necessary.
At Flash Auto, we proudly feature AAA Car Batteries made by NAPA. As a family-owned business and a NAPA Gold AutoCare Center, we’re committed to providing top-notch service and products. Also, check your wiper blades, brakes and heater.
Make sure your holiday travels are safe and enjoyable. Schedule your winter road check today!
