Holiday Travel can be unpredictable in New Mexico.
Weather changes can happen fast as winter approaches here in New Mexico. If you are traveling to see family and friends there are a few things you should keep in mind and have on hand.
Service your vehicle before traveling. This will cover the basics and may reveal issues you were not aware of.
Oil Change and Filter – This time of year as people travel we see a lot of thrown tie rods and busted engines. In so many cases, the damage could have been avoided by regular oil checks and changes. 5 minutes while you fill up, can save you thousands.
Keep an eye on your tire pressure, as temperatures drop so does tire pressure.
Headlights – Warn and filmed over headlights can dramatically reduce your nighttime visibility. With the shorter days, make sure your headlights are up to the task.
Wipers – Don’t forget to get new wipers before a road trip.
