Vehicle Checklist for Winter

Brace yourself, it's predicted that we're in for a long, cold and dark winter ahead. So when you curl up on the couch and sip your hot chocolate, remember that your car needs a little extra TLC too.

Tired batteries usually reach the end of their shelf-life when temperatures drop, which results in that annoying early morning no-start.
