Helping Your Car Survive The Winter With CAA

Helping Your Car Survive The Winter With CAA

So! A lot of people don’t know that I graduated from McMaster University’s Automotive Engineering Program and that I have been around cars my whole life with my father who worked for Goodyear Canada for many, many years.

I have loved cars and the moment that I got my very own, it was a given that I would get CAA.

For over 10 years, I have had CAA and it’s gotten me out of some tough situations.

I have had tire blowouts, flat tires, dead batteries both on the road, on the side of the highway, completely out of town and stuck in my own parking spot. CAA South Central Ontario has always helped me. So, when the opportunity to pitch them on a few ideas, it was speaking from personal experience.

For CAA, the wintertime is sometimes overwhelming. CAA gets calls, lots of calls, from people with dead car batteries every winter and it’s something that can be a quick fix if you are asking the right people!

I worked with CAA South Central Ontario on a campaign to raise awareness about car battery health in the winter time. In the cold weather, they are prone to die faster much faster with the colder weather. It’s a lot like your smart phone’s battery if you use it in cold, cold weather, it will deplete the battery faster than usual.

Is Your Car Battery Ready For Winter??? β„οΈπŸ”‹πŸ‘ˆπŸ»

Did you know that the average car battery lasts 3 to 5 years and with SO MUCH tech in our cars now, it might be even shorter! Above is a video is a close depiction of a situation I had when I needed to get to an important event.

Don’t be like me, stuck in the parking spot. Be like a responsible person and when you get your car tires changed over, ask about your car battery too! πŸš˜

Video #2

Ask For It! β„οΈπŸ”‹πŸ‘ˆπŸ»

You ask for different things from different people every day.

Why don’t you ask about your car’s battery when you change your snow tires or next time you are getting an oil change?

If your car CRANKS βš™οΈ, GRINDS or CLICKS when turning on the ignition, that is a warning sign that your battery may need to be replaced.

The Bottom Line

If it’s below freezing out your car could experience shorter battery life, which could get you stranded, like me, in different situations you don’t want to be in. A car is something you should be able to rely on when it comes to your daily life and when you don’t take care of it, it could cost you a job, a potential girlfriend if you miss a date, or generally a really important opportunity that you could have been there to capitalize on.

For more information about your car battery, be sure to visit your local auto shop to get an audit on the health of your battery. This way, if you need a new battery, you can get it installed right then and there!
