We know how hard New York winters can be. As an auto repair shop in Bethpage, we know how hard it can be on your vehicle, too. That’s why we’ve put together this quick list of products that could make winter easier on you AND your vehicle!
Sleet, snow, rain, whatever—a good pair of winter wiper blades is one of the best things you can do for your vehicle in the winter. Believe us, spending $15–$20 on a decent pair of blades to ensure you can see clearly this winter is well worth it. Your windshield will clear off faster, and you’ll see better during adverse conditions at any time of day.
Gas Line Anti-Freeze
This fuel additive treats gas AND diesel engines and works by absorbing the condensation in your gas tank that forms on cold days, allowing fuel to reach the gas line. Oh, you can grab a bottle for less than $10. What’s not to like?
Though you might not ever use it, a good emergency kit with a flashlight, candles, survival blanket and first aid pieces will hardly take up any space in the back seat, and it’s worth the peace of mind to have it there!
Engine Block Heater
These especially helpful if you don’t have the luxury of parking your vehicle in a climate-controlled garage every night. These might cost around $40 (plus labor) but they’ll have your vehicle starting with the push of a button. An engine block heater pre-warms your vehicle by hooking the engine up to an electrical outlet. The result is an easy, snappy start even in cold weather.
