Why Should You Switch to Winter Tires?

switch to winter tires

Deciding to make the switch to winter tires is an easy one when you live in an area that gets a fair amount of snow. There are plenty of reasons to switch it out, so if any of them fit you, it might be time for a change!

Winter tires work better on snow, ice, and in general cold weather than all-season tires do. This is because they have specially designed traction to grip onto the wet better, and they also are made of a special type of rubber that’s more malleable in winter. All-season tires get too firm in winter, which makes their traction worse.

Good quality winter tires are also the most efficient way to stop on ice and snow. Winter tires have been put thorough the ringer when It comes to testing, so you know when you pick a set that you’re at least getting something as good or better than your current ones, and they’re brand new! Right before winter hits is a great time to replace major components on your car.

Are you ready to make the switch to winter tires today? Take advantage of our current offers! Buy 3 tires, get 1 free! This includes winter tires, but does not include run flat and fleet vehicles. Make your appointment with us today!

Nissan stole the spotlight last month at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where they put the radically upgraded 2016 Nissan Sentra on display. The new model is wildly different cosmetically, with a more sleek, modern look.

The tone of the new Sentra is similar to that of the remodeled 2016 Maxima and 2016 Altima, and updates to the 2016 Sentra include changes to the front and rear fascias, grille, fenders, and hood, as well as a new aluminum-alloy wheel design.

Plus, the 2016 Nissan Sentra debut confirmed much of what we assumed about the model’s interior, which hosts a new available driver’s seat with power lumbar and all sorts of other cosmetic detailing.

You can check out tons of images of the 2016 Nissan Sentra here, at Automobile.

Benefits of a Remote Starter

remote starterOne of the latest new conveniences of the automotive world are remote starters. At first, it may seem like they only provide a minor convenience boost, but we’ve found they are one of the most popular features among our customers at Haddad Nissan. That’s why this month during YESvember we’ve got some great deals on them (they make great early Christmas gifts!). There are plenty of benefits of a remote starter. Here are a few:

  1. Comfort: Isn’t it nice to be able to hop in your car in the winter and enjoy the warmth right from the get-go? That’s just one of the benefits of a remote starter, and we promise you’ll never get tired of it.
  2. Safety: Warming up the car has the added advantage of making it easier to scrape or defrost the windows, improving your visibility and safety in snowy conditions.
  3. Engine Care: Warming up your engine for a minute or two before heading out is useful as it allows the motor oil to become more viscous and provide more lubrication.
  4. Resale Value: Being able to include a remote starter with your car can significantly increase its resale value, especially if you live in a snowy region.

How to Get Your Car Ready for Winter

get your car ready for winter

The cold weather is getting closer and closer, so it’s time to start winterizing your car. This is an important part of staying safe while driving, so if you’re not sure how to do it, here are some tips to get your car ready for winter.

Your car has to work a little harder in the winter, so before the cold hits, get a tune up and make sure things are in working order. Check your battery, your antifreeze levels, your brakes, and your tire tread and air pressure. Pay special attention to your tires. If the tread getting low, pre-winter is definitely the time to have those replaced. And cold air can make your tire pressure low, so you should check it regularly and refill them when necessary.

It’s also a good time to make sure your heater is still working right, so you don’t go to turn on your defrost when the first frost hits and then realize your windows aren’t defrosting.

Follow oil change and routine maintenance rules closely. You want your vehicle to be as healthy as possible in winter!
