Safe Winter Driving Tips

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

That could mean there is totally different ways to prepare your car for the season; however the fundamentals of safe winter motoring stay unchanged. So how do you make sure your car is equipped for safe winter motoring?

Seeing your way clear

We've all experienced that moment where you turn on the wipers on the first rainy day and only then remember you should have replaced them! Wiper blades age and become less effective - especially after a long hot summer. A good quality wiper blade like Trico is essential to help you see your way clear regardless of the weather. Clem Camage Motors can recommend a wiper blade or assembly that is right for your car.

Stay Fluid

Fluids and other mechanisms in your car can be impacted by cold weather; especially coolants, oils and items such as glow plugs in diesel vehicles. It's important to have your car serviced regularly by a professional technician who understands the best 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

Conditions change - and your driving style should too. In wet weather or poor visibility, slow down 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?

There are warning signs that your brakes need to be inspected, like vibrating, spongy or slow responding brake pedal, strange sounds or difficult handling when applying pressure to your brakes. If you notice any of these it's best to have a qualified mechanic check it out. 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 bald tyres, or tyres with incorrect inflation. Now is the time to check how worn your tyres are. If your tyres are wearing unevenly, 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 incorrectly inflated tyres won't just cost you money on additional fuel; it can also impact your braking ability. You can usually find manufacturers recommendations on a panel inside the driver side door.

Clem Camage Motors 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.
