With the 2015 Philadelphia Auto Show beginning on Saturday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, it's a good time to make sure your car is ready for the roads this winter. Before driving this winter check that the brakes, battery, hoses and belts are in good condition. Throughout the winter, check your vehicle to make sure that:
- Fluid levels are full.
- Wiper blades don't streak. Install winter wiper blades.
- Heater and defroster are working properly.
- Radio is working, so you can receive weather updates, road conditions and traffic reports.
- All lights are working.
- Tires are properly inflated and have sufficient tread. Consider installing snow tires or carry a set of tire chains.
