As the weather gets colder, make sure your vehicle is also ready with winter car accessories and more from Rockingham Toyota. From winterizing your Toyota vehicle exterior to keeping you safe on the wintery roads, Rockingham Toyota is here to help!

Winter Driving Checklist

Ensuring that your Toyota model is ready for the winter, whether it is a compact sedan like the Toyota Corolla or a Toyota SUV like the RAV4, is important. If you aren’t proactive, you may find yourself spending more time and money down the road. Here are a few tips to get ready for this winter season:

  • Tire Pressure and tread depth
  • Windshield wiper fluid
  • Oil and oil filter
  • Battery
  • Engine coolant and antifreeze

Following these few simple steps is a great way to protect your car and yourself on the icy Methuen roads. For bigger checks, or for further help winterizing your Toyota vehicle, bring your car in for an inspection from the Rockingham Toyota service center!

Important Supplies

Overall exterior protection is important, but making sure you have the right tools is equally important. For starters, all-weather floor mats and a winter car seat cover can help to keep the winter weather outside of your car. Additionally, keep a safety kit for emergencies packed with things like:

  • A coat and blankets
  • Flashlight
  • First-aid kit
  • Small knife and flares
  • Ice scraper
  • Waterproof matches
