Luxury vehicles from top brands are designed to provide dependable performance in the most brutal climates. But the benefits of world-class winter-weather resilience cannot be enjoyed without regular vehicle maintenance. For winter maintenance tips that will ensure that your luxury car performs the way it was designed to, read on.
Purchase Winter Wipers
Winter wiper blades are an essential winter maintenance item, as they are more effective at wiping away the slushy mixture of snow, ice, and water that will cut down on your visibility. Install a high-quality pair of wiper blades before winter and be sure to have the wiper fluid inspected and replaced it necessary.
Test the Battery
Winter puts a great deal of stress on your luxury car’s battery. Ask Texas Cars Direct to test the battery’s ability to hold a full charge. If the battery cannot hold or charge or it is approaching the end of its warranty period, replace it this winter before you end up stranded with a dead battery.
Flush the Antifreeze
The ratio between water and antifreeze in your luxury car’s radiator can become out of balance over time. If there’s not enough antifreeze, the radiator fluid could freeze during the winter. Flush and refill the radiator’s fluid reservoir to be on the safe side.
Check the Tires
Check the air pressure once per month and make sure it is at the recommended air pressure levels, found inside of the owner’s manual. Have the tires inspected at a car repair shop to be sure you have enough tread for wintertime.
Wax the Exterior
Protect the beautiful exterior of your luxury vehicle by washing it weekly, and waxing it every month. Wax the headlamp casings too, as this prevents headlight haze that is both unattractive and unsafe.
