The fall months will quickly turn to winter, and it is crucial that your Jaguar luxury car is prepared. The Jaguar service center at Jaguar Peabody has you covered for your long-term service and short-term prep and maintenance needs.

Let’s take a look at some of the most important ways to prepare your Jaguar car for winter.

Consider Winter Tires

Depending on where you live, winter will cause some extreme road conditions. Winter tires could potentially save your life, as they can get you started and stopped much faster and safer than all-weather tires. They can cost more than regular tires but consider them an investment for you and your family’s safe journeys through the winter weather.

Protect Your Engine

Be sure that you’ve been consistent with your oil changes, which should happen every 5,000-7,500 miles. Top off your antifreeze as well to make sure that you have ample protection for temperatures as low as 50 degrees below zero.

Antifreeze also protects your engine from corrosion. Ideally, try to drive your Jaguar at least 15 miles to properly heat the engine and circulate the oil and antifreeze.

Test Your Battery and Clean Its Terminals

Your Jaguar’s battery is crucial, and you don’t need it failing at the worst time. Get a full overview of your battery’s condition with a computerized tester. You can buy one yourself or have your battery tested at an auto parts store.

Corrosion buildup can compound in cold weather. This can prevent the charging process, which means your battery won’t recharge as you drive and leave you high and dry. You can clean the terminals and connectors yourself with a wire brush to save you some time, money, and hassle.
