These are our suggestions for New Year’s servicing steps and winter driving:

Tips for New Year’s Servicing

Service and maintenance for winter driving are required to make sure your travels are safe. Winter weather produces dangerous driving conditions that compound already congested roadways.

Your brakes, tires, fluids, and battery must be serviced year-round, but it is crucial during this time of year. No matter where you live in the U.S., this applies.

Here are a few tips for basic winter service across the country:

  • Check the defrosters and wiper blades.
  • Examine the brakes.
  • Replace air filters.
  • Test the heater.
  • Inspect the belts, cables, wires, and hoses.
  • Check the transmission fluid.
  • Check the tire air pressure frequently.
  • Evaluate lights and flashers.
  • Watch for recalls.
  • Wax the vehicle after washing for protection.
  • Pack an emergency kit.

West Texas experiences winter weather and road conditions differently than in colder regions. For warmer southern climates, the following tips are helpful:

Winterize the Tires

The condition of your tires is essential to safe road handling during winter weather conditions. It takes more than just checking the tire pressure, and you need professional tire technicians to examine them closely.

You may not need to purchase snow tires in West Texas, but your tires must have adequate tread to handle slick roadways. While West Texas occasionally gets 1-4 inches of snow, it’s not a common event. Monitoring weather forecasts and The Farmers Almanac predictions can help you decide whether the purchase of snow tires is warranted.

Our certified service technicians at Sunland Park CDJR can examine your tires to ensure they are safe for winter driving. We want to make sure you and your family are safe this season.

Test the Battery

Even in West Texas, your battery must be tested in winter by certified experts because falling temperatures diminish a battery’s capacity. This could mean that your battery won’t have enough power to start your vehicle when you need it most.

Electric and hybrid vehicles also need to be serviced because they can significantly lose driving range in cold weather. There is no escape from servicing your vehicle’s battery for winter driving.

Check all the Fluids

Oil, brake fluid, and other fluids must be replaced occasionally, matching them with the manufacturer’s specifications for the season and climate conditions.

Tips for Winter Driving

Brushing up on your winter driving skills is a great idea to prepare for unexpected bad weather conditions that may strike West Texas. In El Paso and the surrounding area, freezing temperatures, snow, ice, and freezing rain sometimes occur. The best strategy is preparation.

Our tips for driving in winter weather include the following:

  • Slow down for braking and control on slick, wet roads.
  • Follow weather alerts.
  • Remain alert and stop to rest as often as needed.
  • Do not text or operate any handheld device while driving.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and shifting weather conditions.
