How Should I Prepare My Kia Vehicle for Winter?

Get your KIA warranty questions answered

Winter in the Pacific Northwest is known for being mild, but it's still important to make sure your Kia is ready for the winter. Checking the tread level on the tires is one of the most important ways you can prepare for winter; when the roads are slick and rainy, having adequate tread can be the difference between gripping the road and sliding off it. Additionally, it's a good idea to make sure your vehicle's windshield wipers are in good working order and your headlights shine clear and strong. If you live in or around Olympia, you know how thick the fog can get--so installing fog lights on your Kia is another great way to make sure you're safe over the winter.

Other Tips for Getting Your Vehicle Ready for Winter

Of course, living in a place without much snow doesn't mean you won't visit snowier climes. If your winter travels take you somewhere snowier, it's a good idea to be prepared. Winter tires are a good idea if you're going to be spending much time in such a place. In addition, it's a good idea to make sure your Kia is stocked with cold-weather emergency supplies. These include an extra set of warm clothes and shoes, a small shovel, tire chains, blankets, and non-perishable food and water. Items like these can be a big help if you encounter a blizzard or run into a snowdrift.
