If applicable to your vehicle’s configuration, tire rotation should be performed in accordance with the recommended intervals, or sooner at the first signs of irregular tread wear.  A tire inspection will help determine the need for a tire rotation which may occur at least once between regular scheduled maintenance intervals.

Cold weather can reduce tire pressure, so make sure all tires, including the spare, are properly inflated and balanced, and wheels are properly aligned. Inflate tires to their recommended pressure. Under-inflated tires can reduce fuel economy by up to 3.3 percent, cause premature tire failure and are a safety hazard. Tire failures and blowouts, often a result of under-inflation, contribute to 414 deaths and 10,295 injuries each year in the U.S., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In addition to tire pressure, check for tread wear and any obvious damage caused by potholes or sharp objects.



Batteries work harder in extreme temperatures and winter can compromise their cranking performance up to 60 percent. Test and replace old or weak batteries, especially those more than 3 years old. It can be cheaper than a tow and replacement on the road.
