Winterizing Your Mazda in Bay Shore
Winter is fast approaching on Long Island. That means, it’s time to get your Mazda ready for the rough conditions ahead. Bright Bay Mazda’s service department is ready to help you make sure you’re safe on the roads this winter. Here are some maintenance items to consider before the first big snow or ice hits New York this year.
- Tires: At the very least, you should have your tires inspected for any extensive tread wear, sidewall damage, or improper inflation. You might want to consider snow tires on your vehicle as well for added protection and efficiency in the cold months.
- Brakes : After hot summer driving, your brakes no doubt need an inspection before the cold months hit. We’ll make sure your brakes are in tip top shape, from brake fluid to brake pads. Remember, even if you aren’t hearing any squealing when you stop, you may still need some brake maintenance.
- Emergency Kit: Breaking down can be especially dangerous in the winter months. Make sure that you have some emergency items in your car, such as road salt, a shovel, a blanket, and a flare to ensure that you’re as protected as you can be if you happen to break down this winter.
- Wipers: Be sure your wipers are ready to go before the first snow or ice of the season. The time to realize your wipers are in bad shape is not when you are driving through sleet! Consider heavy duty wipers for the winter months.
- Battery: Harsh temperatures are rough on your battery so after summer and before winter is the perfect time to have your battery inspected and repaired or replaced if needed. Winter is not the time that you want to be stranded with a dead battery!
