Late-model vehicles have come to be reliable, all-season transportation. However, many consumers don't realize that they need to take some simple steps to ensure that their vehicles are "winterized' and ready for safe travel at freezing temperatures.
These steps include:
1. Have the oil changed. Engine oil changes viscosity, or thickness, based on temperature. Change engine oil when outside temperatures plummet. This ensures that the engine can start easily in sub-freezing temperatures.
