Make Sure Your Car Is Prepared For The Winter

by Jessica Cervantez

As you prepare your homes for the cold weather, you need to make sure you don't forget about your cars.

If you want to keep your car out of the shop, there are a few simple things you can do to get your car ready for winter.

Ronny Dupree, Dupree Tire owner, said, "Always check your anti-freeze and get it winterized. Make sure that it's going to be for the temperature you're around.  Here, 32 degrees is a good number."

And you should always use your tire gauge to check the pressure in your tires. When you wake up in the morning to find your windshield frozen, make sure you don't throw hot water on it.

Following the simple tips could keep you from having to spend big bucks to keep your car on the road as the weather turns colder.

Dupree said, "Anti-freeze is about $7 to $8. right now, it's a lot cheaper than a $3,000 motor.
