New Hampshire winters pose a lot of challenges for our vehicles, even if you’re behind the wheel of a top-of-the-line Porsche. At Porsche Nashua, we’re quite familiar with the harshness of the holiday season, so we’re here to provide Porsche services that go beyond just car buying and selling.
From Concord to Bedford, road conditions in the winter season becomes no laughing matter. With thermometers dropping all the way down to 18 degrees Fahrenheit during the month of December, it’s wise to be prepared for the worst of the worst.
Of all the things you should have inspected before the worst of winter hits, your tires take the cake in terms of priority. Your tires are more than just buffers between your vehicle and the road; they provide traction and stability as well. Besides simple tire maintenance, like inspecting air pressure and tread depths, you should also be sure that you are rolling into the holiday season on the right set. So, if you don’t already, you should invest in a set of all-terrain or all-weather tires that are better tempered for winter driving in NH.
Before winter hits, you may want to change out your motor oil as well. During the colder months, you’ll want to purchase motor oil that has lower viscosity at low temperatures. Winter-grade motor oil can be identified by the ‘w’ beside the grade. With winter motor oil you won’t have to worry about warming up your engine for long periods and enjoy a far greater performance.
Most of all, we recommend that you avoid taking to the road when conditions aren’t so great. While we offer plenty of winterizing resources at our Porsche dealership, the best way to stay safe this holiday season is to stay home with your loved ones and wait out the bad weather. At Porsche Nashua, our first concern is you, your interests, and satisfying your every auto-related need.
