Protect Your Paint
The majorities of drivers are aware of at least one scratch or chip in their vehicles’ paint. Unfortunately, many will not repair these small damages before they rust and become serious issues. A scratch can rust in just 30 days, and snow, ice and freezing temperatures can accelerate and intensify the damage. Contact Osceola Garage as to what finish would be the best for your vehicle to repair these small damages.
Winter weather can reduce visibility, so a clear windshield is extremely important to prevent accident damage. To make certain you have an unobstructed view of the road at all times, test the heater, defroster system and windshield wipers. Replace any old or cracked blades, and don’t forget your rear wiper. Stock up on winter windshield fluid and keep a bottle of de-icing spray in your car to reduce the need to scrape. Check all vehicle lights to make sure your night vision is equally clear, and replace any dim or dead bulbs. Contact Osceola Garage to inspect your vehicle free of charge.
