Our Favorite Tips to Winterize Your Car This Year
Here are our favorite tips on how to prepare your car for winter!
Check Your Tires
We can’t stress this enough. Of all of the safety and driver assist features in your BMW, your tires are the only components that come into contact with the road. Trying to power through a winter rain storm with low tread, or old tires can cause you to have a collison.
We recommend changing your windshield wipers at least once per year. Before the winter months bring winter storms, check your windshield wipers to make sure that they’re prepared to clear your windshield of all the rain that’ll greet us this season.
Check Your Antifreeze
While we’re used to the tropical climate that so many visitors flock to Florida to enjoy, winter nights can cause temperatures to drop below freezing. Low or old coolant may be susceptible to freezing and could cause problems with your vehicles’ cooling system. If its been more than three years or 36,000 miles since your last flush
Check Your Lights
Whether you’re hitting the brakes or depending on your headlights, you want to be able to see the road ahead, and you want others to see you. Late model BMWs will notify you with an in-cabin message if your BMW has a malfunctioning light. If your BMW is notifying you of a fault, allow our Authorized BMW Center to change it out for you so you can be safe on the road.
In the unexpected evented of an emergency, you want to be prepared. Be sure to have an emergency kit in your car so unexpected emergencies are a little less uncomfortable.
