Winter recently arrived in New England, which means the time comes for drivers around the area to start preparing their new or used Nissan for the heavier snowfall. We want to encourage safe driving habits and keep the public informed here at Marc Motors Nissan, so let us go over the top five tips we can offer to help drivers prepare for winter. You may schedule any of these services throughout the service department and see us in Sanford, ME. Drivers will find us located just 20 minutes outside of Wells.

Top Five Tips for Preparing Your Nissan This Winter!

  1. Check Tire Pressure/Traction: Whether you prefer to use snow tires in Somersworth or remain unsure, check the traction of your tires and their pressure. Before wintertime, you should schedule a rotation or order new tires if you have not in a while.
  2. Coolant Levels: Coolant comes in handy during any winter extremities, hot or cold, and keeps your engine free from corrosion. Check the antifreeze reservoir and ensure the mixture remains fresh.
  3. Oil Grade: When you get an oil change or fill the oil tank yourself, use winter-grade oil for your Nissan in Portland.
  4. HVAC System: The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system of your car should remain in good condition, including the defrosters and filters. Any refrigerant should get topped off, and any expired cabin air filters should undergo changing before heading out to drive in Saco this winter.
  5. Brakes: If you drive an older Nissan, or owned yours for a while, you should ensure the brakes work properly, and any parts needed undergo replacement.
