CINCINNATI, OH – Dec. 7, 2017 – Sub-freezing temperatures will make a return to the tristate area this week and vehicles that have not been properly maintained and prepared for winter conditions could leave drivers stuck, literally, out in the cold, warns AAA.
“No one wants to be stranded in the cold by a vehicle breakdown,” said Jenifer Moore, AAA spokeswoman. “Properly preparing your vehicle for winter driving is essential for the safety of all passengers and will greatly decrease the chances of your vehicle letting you down.
Based on calls to AAA Emergency Roadside Assistance, the most common problems that arise this time of year are with dead batteries or improperly inflated tires, both of which can be aggravated by a sudden cold snap.”
AAA recommends that motorists use a simple checklist to determine their vehicle’s winter maintenance needs. Many of the items on the list can be inspected by a car owner in less than an hour, but others should be performed by a certified technician.
Winter Car Care Checklist
Motorists can identify reliable repair facilities with certified technicians by looking for the AAA Approved Auto Repair sign. Nearby shops can be located at AAA.com/repair.
Winter Emergency Road Kit
Now is also a great time to begin assembling an emergency kit equipped for winter weather to carry in your vehicle. This kit is especially important if you’ll be driving any distance and winter weather is forecast. The kit should include:
With a little preparation, motorists can reduce their anxiety level and perhaps save themselves time and money when dealing with the oncoming winter months.
