  • Don’t leave your vehicle running unattended allowing it to be a target for thieves
  • Check your tires (condition: minimum of 2/32 tread depth, air pressure, All season or snow tires)
  • Check or replace your wiper blades, fill your washer fluid tank
  • Clean the dirt/grime off your windshield to allow your wipers to work correctly
