5 Tips to Get Your Car Through Winter

Updated: Nov 7, 2021


We all know that winter is coming. Some of us get ready and some of us don’t. Here on the west coast, we have been teased a couple of times with the threat of snow; however, looking outside today, getting your car ready for winter is probably something that most of us will leave to another day.

Getting Your Car Ready

Getting your car ready for winter is not difficult; the best part is it can save you money and make your car last longer. At Discount Motor City, the best of the used car dealerships in Surrey, BC, when asked the question about how long a car will last, our response always is, “it all depends on how it is maintained.”

To maintain your car and get it ready for winter, from all of us at Discount Motor City, where you can find the best deals in used cars for sale in Surrey, we offer the following:

Be Out Front of the Weather

Ha, how many times have we all seen pictures of the lineups at the tire shops with drivers scrambling to get their winter tires installed after the first big snowfall. We all know it is coming; why not make it less stressful and get your winter tires installed now?

At the same time, why not have your battery checked, the fluid levels topped up and make sure you have the correct oil? These few simple acts can make quite a difference and just think, it may prevent an expensive tow if your vehicle will not start on a dark and cold wintery night.

Do A Deep Clean

Before it gets too cold, why not make your car shiny inside and out by having your local detail shop give it a deep clean? At Discount Motor City, used car dealership, Surrey, we have a great detail shop at the same lot as our used cars, and would be happy to schedule a deep clean for you. Just give Carlo a call at (604) 788 7261 and he will be happy to look after you and your vehicle.

And, once done with the deep clean, at Discount Motor City, we recommend you schedule a regular quick clean. On those bright and not-to-cold days, what could be better than keeping your car sparkling clean by having it washed to remove any caked on salt and grime?

Don’t Forget to Dry Your Car

It only takes a few minutes to dry your car after a wash. Water freezes pretty fast and who knows when the temperature is going to drop. The worst thing that can happen is you get frozen out of your car because the moisture has frozen everything shut. At Discount Motor City, used cars for sale in Surrey, we suggest giving the whole car a wipe down, including the door jambs and most importantly the rubber parts. Or you can come and see us and we will gladly help you keep your car clean.
