  • Check your washer fluid

Make sure your washer fluid is full, especially if you will be driving through colder climates! You will need a lot of washer fluid for a winter trip because of all of the salt that will be end up on your windshield. Keep some washer fluid in your trunk just in case! and even get washer fluid with antifreeze!

  • Want winter tires?

We at Harris Automotive suggest you get winter tires if you will be driving through the snow this holiday season! Winter tires are designed to grip on snow and ice which is great for winter travel. Also, check your tire pressure and alignment so your tires are evenly balanced for your trip! We at Harris Automotive offer discount tire alignment prices year round.

  • Double check your car battery!

This is an important step to do before any holiday travel! Many auto parts shops will replace your battery for you if it needs replaced! Just check with your local auto parts shop! If you are in the Columbus area, we at Harris Automotive would love to help you!

Keep your car fuel lines from freezing on the winter roads and during low temperatures, always keep your gas tank halfway full! This may seem inconvenient, but it’s vital to keeping your car running great through very cold temperatures!
