Tips & Must-Have Features

Winter Driving Essentials

It’s easy to get your car prepped for winter driving with vehicle maintenance near Vernon. Mazda of Manchester has you covered with certified technicians and all the services you’re looking for, including:



Fall is a good time to take a look at your tires. If they’re underinflated, make sure to take them to a service center or pump them up yourself to their recommended PSI. Is the tread on your tires low, or do they need to be replaced? Bad tires can be downright dangerous in snow and ice. In bad Northeastern winters, it’s also a good idea to consider putting on winter tires, depending on the make and model you drive.

Preparing your tires for winter driving conditions


Winter driving can be tough on car batteries, so if you have a battery that might be nearing the end of its life, you can assume it might just happen on a cold winter day. Who has time to deal with that? Avoid an unpleasant, inconvenient experience by getting your car battery checked, so you don’t end up stranded in the cold.

New Wipers

If your wipers aren’t working well, it can really cause serious problems in the wintertime. For instance, if your wipers aren’t flush with the windshield, it will be difficult to get salt from trucks and other winter debris off your windshield to improve your visibility. Also, don’t forget to make sure you’ve filled up the windshield wiper fluid tank, so you don’t run out at an inopportune time.

If you’ve been putting off getting an oil change, now is a good time to bring your vehicle in. You may also want to consider getting your oil tank filled up with lower viscosity oil in order to ensure optimal performance in cold winter temperatures.

Helpful Winter Driving Features

Take one look at the new Mazdas for sale at our Manchester dealership, and it’s clear that Mazda has all the essential winter car features you’re looking for:


All-Wheel Drive

Winter driving on the slick, slippery roads of South Windsor can be dangerous. If you’re looking for extra traction and stability through icy, snowy winters, you can find what you’re looking for with all-wheel drive (AWD). Available on the Mazda CX-3, Mazda CX-5, and Mazda CX-9, i-ACTIV AWD® is able to read weather and road conditions, as well as driving behavior, in order to deliver the right amount of traction where it’s needed most.

Heated Seats and Steering Wheel

Virtually all vehicles come with heating systems, but you can make your winter driving even more comfortable by opting for a new Mazda vehicle with heated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and even a heated steering wheel.

Heated Side Mirrors

It can be difficult to see through the side mirrors in fog, ice, and snow, but this can easily be done when you have a Mazda with heated side mirrors.

Windshield Wiper De-Icer

Windshield wiper fluid is important for winter driving, but so is having fully functioning wipers. Keep ice, salt, and other debris off your car with the help of a windshield wiper de-icer. You can find this feature, alongside AWD, on the redesigned 2017 Mazda CX-5.
