Winter Car Care Tips

With winter quickly approaching we want to make sure that you are ready for what is ahead. Your friends at Colonial Mazda in Danbury, CT are here with some helpful tips for winter to keep you happy and confident whenever you are behind the wheel.

Is All-Season Good Enough?

You might be wondering which tires are right for your vehicle for winters in New Milford, CT, and our tire center can provide you with all the answers. You might have heard that all-seasons tires are fine for winter, but they are built for what their name implies: all seasons. Winter tires are specifically designed with aggressive treads to handle tough conditions and are made of a softer compound to give you a sturdier grip on cold roads.

You might also notice your tire pressure drops in the winter, which is completely normal when it gets cold. The air density drops which means less pressure in your tires, all it takes is a visit to an air pump and you'll be on your way.

Winter Can Lead to a Dead Battery


The cold weather is actually less damaging to your battery than hot but makes it work harder which makes the problems caused from the heat to be much worse, possibly even causing your battery to die. If you think that there is an issue with your battery, or notice any signs of needing to replace your battery, you can visit our service center for help.

Signs to Replace Your Battery

  • Slow Engine Crank
  • Swelling or Bloating in the case
  • Leaking or corrosion around the posts
  • Old age of a battery
