Well we sure didn't get the weather they were calling for but that doesn't mean that weather isn't affecting your vehicle. Be aware that the cold weather affects your battery. You should also check the fluid levels in your vehicle from washer fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, oil… You should also keep in mind that salt on the roads corrode metal. Check that your windshield wiper blades don't need to be replaced and that the blades themselves are clean. Sometimes the wiperblades need to be cleaned themselves to get all the grime off. You also need to check your tires to be sure that they have the correct tire pressures. Did you know that tires lose air pressure in cold weather? You also need to be sure that your tires have good tread left. These are the basics and there are other things to think about as well, but it does give you some things to think about.
