The first thing to do is make sure you are up to date on your cars oil change routine. Getting your oil changed is an important way to keep your car running its best. Another good idea to get ready for winter, is to put an emergency kit in your vehicle. Mazda even sells its own kit that has everything you need including a folding reflective triangle, flashlight, emergency blanket, rain poncho, cotton gloves, shop towel and multi-function tool. Buying this kit from Mazda is much easier than assembling all these items yourself.

It is also important to get different parts of your car checked for possible problems. One important thing area to check is your car’s belts and hoses. The belts and hoses under your car’s hood should be checked every 30,000 miles or so. Cold temperatures can weaken belts and hoses causing them to snap, so making sure they are in good condition will prevent a costly bill from the towing company. You should also have your tire pressure checked and consider getting snow tires. Ice roads can be even more dangerous without the appropriate tires.
