As temperatures continue to cool, road conditions quickly become inclement. To ensure that you stay safe on the roads this winter, your Toyota must be optimized properly for winter. In today's blog, we will provide you with three simple winter car care tips that will make all the difference this winter season.

Inspect your tires: Here on the East Coast, the right tires can make a world of difference in poor road conditions. In fact, winter tires are a must as they're more capable of providing the traction you need to stay safe when the temperatures drop.

Consider the quality and volume of coolant, gasoline and other fluids: Coolant keeps your engine from freezing in cold temperatures, so it's important to make sure your vehicle has enough. It's also important to keep your gasoline tank full so it doesn't freeze. Further, we recommend keeping your washer-fluid full and winter-friendly as it can improve visibility when the roads get messy.

Get your brakes checked: Your brakes are essential all season long. But combine poor brake performance with poor winter conditions and you soon have a recipe for disaster. Be sure to have them checked before the winter terrain becomes inclement.
