Winter driving is definitely different from riding around in warmer weather. Are you and your vehicle ready for cold weather driving? Use these tips to prepare.

Have your car serviced by the service department here at Valenti Volkswagen of Mystic. Our technicians can check fluid levels, change your oil, verify your battery is in good order, and make sure your belts and hoses are ready for cold weather. Keep the gas tank topped off throughout the winter. That way you can keep warm even if you breakdown.

Keep an emergency kit in your car. It should include a snow scraper, a small snow shovel, kitty litter, blankets, jumper cables, flashlight, flares, an extra cell phone charger, and snacks. Always check road conditions before leaving. Give yourself extra time to reach your destination, especially in inclement weather conditions. If you don't have to, stay at home. The service department in Mystic, CT is ready to help with your winter car care.
