With winter approaching, there a few things to get checked to winterize your vehicle before it arrives. While North Carolina very rarely gets cold enough for there to be any issues with antifreeze, it should still be checked before winter arrives to ensure that its is up to the task of offering protection at very low temperatures. Because cold temperatures can cause tires to lose a small amount of air pressure, it is also recommended that the air in tires is checked and topped off as well. Even a small loss of air will cause the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) light to illuminate, alerting a driver that tire air pressure has fallen. Beyond that, a car in a relatively fair weather state like North Carolina doesn’t require much “winterizing”, while true cold weather states may require special snow tires and undercoating to help mitigate road salt.
