Having a vehicle breakdown is always inconvenient, but can actually be dangerous during the winter months. Washington Mechanic Glen Martin says there’s some preventative maintenance that can be done, to minimize the risk of it happening. Martin says even though many people prefer to maintain their own vehicles, it’s still important to have a professional take a look at it periodically. Martin also says once the colder temperatures do arrive, it’s paramount to allow vehicles to warm up before driving them.
