There are many get your car ready for winter tips we read about year in and year out. Some of us dutifully set aside a day to go down the list and check them off one by one. Others have had to learn the wisdom of these lists the hard way — such as those white-knuckled drives home from work, skidding at every turn on tires that should have been replaced months ago. Or how about having to pull over to the shoulder every ten minutes to clear the snow off that spot on the windshield smack dab in the middle of our line of vision, the one piling up as our road-weary wiper keeps gliding over.
Yes everyone tells us the importance of properly inflated tires, and how we should replace our wipers every November. But there are some common-sense steps we can take on that no one mentions. Maybe car experts think these are so everyone knows what types of things that they’d be insulting our intelligence to even suggest we haven't thought of them on our own. Well, we have news for them, some of us could benefit from a few of those insults.
Some winter preps are best entrusted to the skills of a certified technician; things like checking the strength of your battery, flushing the cooling system, filling it with fresh anti-freeze, servicing the heater, and checking your brakes. And if you live in or around Terre Haute where winters can be harsh, you can take your car to Dorsett Mitsubishi, and wait in the comfort of the WIFI-enabled waiting lounge, checking your email while watching widescreen TV, or helping yourself to a complimentary snack or cup of coffee from the beverage bar. And bonus, Dorsett technicians perform a free five-point inspection as part of every service so you can stay ahead of the game and hope it won't be a long winter marathon.
