Safe Winter Driving Tips

While the northern half of Australia is enjoying their dry season, the southern half of the country is bracing for a wet winter.

You'd think that this would mean completely different ways to get your car ready for winter; however the essentials of safe winter motoring stay unchanged. So what ways can you make sure your car is equipped for safe winter motoring?

Let's keep it clear

Who hasn’t had that moment when you turn on the wipers at the first drop of rain and realise they haven't been replaced in years! Being exposed to full force of the Australian sun all year round makes your wipers wear out. A good quality wiper blade like Trico is essential to help you see your way clear regardless of the weather. Triple One Automotive can recommend a wiper blade or assembly that is right for your car.

Keep It Fluid

Fluids and other components in your car can be effected by cold weather; this includes coolants, oils and items such as glow plugs in diesel vehicles. Regular services are important - especially by an expert who knows the right parts and products to keep your car in peak operating condition. We use high quality NGK glow plugs and Penrite oils and fluids that are designed for Australian conditions.


Drive to the conditions

Always remember to drive to your conditions. Slow down in wet weather or poor visibility and leave a larger than normal stopping distance between yourself and the vehicle in front.
Drive on the safe side and book in today for a service or a 65 Point Vehicle Inspection Report.

Could you stop in time?

Be aware of the warning signs that your brakes need some work, including vibrating, spongy or slow responding brake pedal, strange sounds or difficult handling when applying pressure to your brakes. If you notice any of these you should get it checked out by a qualified mechanic. Brake inspections form part of our 65 Point Vehicle Inspection Report, so if you have concerns call us today and book in.

It's dangerous to drive on worn tyres, or tyres with incorrect inflation. Now is the time to check how worn your tyres are. If you spot uneven tyre wear, this could indicate that your shock absorbers or some other vital part of your steering and suspension systems are due for service or replacement. Find out more about the components that affect your tyre wear on the links below:

 

Driving on tyres that are incorrectly inflated won't just cost you money on additional fuel; it can also impact your stopping ability. You can usually find manufacturers recommendations on a panel inside the driver side door.

Triple One Automotive has a state of the art Safe T Stop machine that can accurately test for shocker and brake wear and tear and provide you with a detailed report on the state of your vehicles ability to stop in an emergency. Call us today to book in for a Safe T Stop test.
