1. When you pull out of your parking spot, check for any fluid leaks that have occurred while you were parked. This works best when you have been parked at home for at least 8 hours. If you do see a leak, head to the mechanic as soon as possible to avoid serious problems.

2. Before the weather gets too terrible, turn on your defrosters and make sure that they heat up. Give them a few minutes to kick on, and if you do not feel heat, schedule an appointment for repairs. There is nothing worse than coming out to a car that you thought was defrosting, but has really just been idling for 15 minutes.

3. Experts recommend replacing your windshield wipers before each winter. This way, when the rain and snow begins to fly, you are able to clear it away quickly and safely.
