Winterizing Your Vehicle in Bay Shore, NY
Fall is here in Bay Shore, and winter is on its way! Bright Bay Mazda has some tips for our New York residents on how to winterize your vehicle, and some great deals as well.
Check Your Tires
Your tires are a vital factor in keeping you safe this winter. Make sure you have adequate tire tread, which means that your tread depth should not be less than 3/32”. For traction purposes, if your vehicle has four-wheel drive but you don’t use it often, bring it in to Bright Bay Mazda and have one of our technicians make sure everything is working properly. Plus, we have tons of ways for you to save money when you bring in our coupons.
Replace Windshield Wipers
It’s pretty obvious that you need to be able to see the road when you’re driving this winter. Wiper blades need to be replaced every six months to a year, or as soon as you have visibility problems. With the winter weather coming, you don’t want to be faced with a streaky windshield every time you turn on your windshield wipers. Bright Bay can help you with affordable wiper replacement.
Get the Heating and Cooling System Checked
The last thing you want is to get into your car on a frigid winter morning and realize that the heater isn’t working! Get the heating and cooling system in your vehicle checked by our highly-trained technicians at Bright Bay Mazda before you desperately need it.
Put Together an Emergency Kit
You never know what could happen on the road, especially in the winter months. We recommend packing an emergency kit for your car, just in case. Here are some things to include:
- A snow brush/ice scraper
- Bag of sand
- Spare Tire
- Extra windshield fluid
- First aid kit
