Keeping You & Your Vehicle Safe in the Winter

car driving on snowy road

Washing your car in the winter can be an afterthought while you curl up by the fire and try to stay warm. However, if you live in an area with a cold climate, you must take extra precautions to protect the exterior of your vehicle during the winter months. Snowy and muddy road conditions are not friendly to your vehicle and will ultimately decrease its lifespan if the necessary care measures are not taken to keep it clean.

What Can Happen?

Long story short, rusting of your vehicle is inevitable if you do not take precautionary measures. A mixture of snow, mud, and salt on the roads can cause rust that will spread over time. Rust simply looks bad and it also contributes to long-term damage of your car.

What You Can Do

It is recommended that you not only wash the vehicle after each large storm, but even winterize it beforehand. It is important to focus on areas of the vehicle that are subject to accumulation of salt, dirt and road debris. To prevent rusting, make sure you pay extra attention to the wheels, quarter panels, front end and undercarriage of the vehicle. You will also need to keep your windshield clean in the winter to ensure proper visibility in inclement weather conditions. Check out Wipe New® RainBrella, a glass treatment formula that repels nature’s worst elements and keeps you and your vehicle safe from harm.

Are Car Covers Worth It?

cars parked on autumn road

While car covers provide a wide range of benefits for car protection, you must choose carefully. If you purchase the wrong material or size, the pros of purchasing a car cover will be long-gone, leaving your car to fend for itself.

Pros

Car covers mainly protect your car against various debris like salt, droppings from trees, insects, sun damage, and moisture. These weather-related factors cause your car to rust and suffer from paint etches. Car covers are especially useful for classic cars- protecting something that you’ve put a lot of time and money into is crucial to those trying to make the most of resale value. Over time, you can save a significant amount of time and money at the car wash or on car restoration, making this the main reason individuals decide to purchase car covers.

Cons

When choosing a car cover, damage can be made by simply choosing the wrong cover. Covers too large or small cause abrasion from rubbing and leave your car exposed to the elements, particularly from wind. For protection from moisture damage, keep in mind that ‘moisture wicking material’ is better than plastic coverings that are 100% waterproof. In most cases, moisture is unavoidable and needs a way to escape. When purchasing a car cover, make note of the return or exchange policy to ensure you end up with the right product to protect your vehicle. For extra protection, Wipe New RainBrella® will keep your car resistant to damage from dirt and rain, whether you decide to purchase a cover or not.

Car Maintenance for Cold Weather

Whether you’re traveling to colder places or live in these areas, it is important to take action when protecting your car from winter climates. We recommend a few precautions for less complications and more time on the road.

Check Fluids

To keep your engine from overheating, it is essential to check your antifreeze (coolant) level. Using your car owner’s manual, this fluid, usually mixed with distilled water, is simple to check. If too much water is mixed in, the coolant is at risk of freezing. We also strongly suggest checking brake fluid, engine oil, and automatic transmission fluid to keep your car running smoothly.

Test Your Battery

With extreme cold, car battery capacity decreases significantly and is a top reason for roadside assistance calls. To avoid this, we recommend getting your battery tested by a mechanic and getting it replaced every 3-5 years.

No Idling

As a common myth, drivers have been told to warm up their car in the winter by idling for an extended period of time. However, for modern cars, it is best to idle for less than a minute and ease into driving to warm up the car. Idling is known to waste gasoline and put unnecessary stress on the engine.

Wash Your Car

Cold weather and snow bring harsh elements like road salt that can cause damage to the exterior of your car. Wipe New Original can protect your car from road salt and restores your trim to give you the that shiny, new look.

Check Windshield Wipers

For winter storms, having visibility is extremely important. When temperatures drop, it is easy for windshield wipers to crack, so look out for this. Wipers should be replaced annually. Windshield wiper fluid is just as important for visibility. Because windshield wiper fluid is known to freeze, we suggest considering winter-specific fluid.

Protect Your Car from the Sun

While the sun provides us with light, warmth and energy, it can also be damaging. You probably already know that too much sun is not good for your skin or eyes, and the same goes for your car. Both the interior and exterior of your car can become damaged when exposed to the sun for too long.

Protect the interior

You’ve probably noticed that when you get into your car during the summer, it’s hot—very hot. You immediately want to roll down the windows and blast the A/C until the cool air kicks in. The air inside your car can reach temperatures over 150 degrees Fahrenheit, especially when direct sunlight is beaming in for hours at a time. To help protect your car’s interior from sunlight damage, consider the following:

Park in the shade

This is the most obvious solution. Sunlight can fade the color of your dashboard and your seats. Wipe New Original not only restores your car’s surfaces, but it also protects them from sun exposure.

Use sun panels

Another simple solution is to place sun panels in your front windshield and rear window. This will help keep your car’s interior much cooler.

Keep your dashboard clean

To avoid stains, make sure that the interior of your car is clean. The sun is really good at melting food and even dirt into the surfaces of your car and leaving stains.

Keep your windows slightly cracked

Check the weather, and if no rain is in the forecast, keep your windows just slightly cracked to allow the hot air to escape.
