Best Car Accessories For Winter

When temperatures start dropping and snow starts to fall, what you keep in your car can make the difference between having a comfortable and warm winter and havingWinter Weather Conditions a miserable winter transportation experience. Even if your car handles well in inclement weather like the Honda CR-V, there are some things that can make every winter drive easier and safer. Car accessories for winter are relatively easy to find and install, so you can outfit yourself for this season and seasons in the future in no time. Here’s a list of some of the best car accessories for your winter drive.

  • Mud Flaps can prevent grime, dirt, and salt from treated roads from flicking up onto your vehicle. A lot of damage to vehicles over the course of the winter is due to salt corroding the paint and metal on the underside of the car.
  • All-Weather Floor Mats can contain all of the ugly things that stick to your boots when you enter the vehicle. It may not seem vital, but it sure beats destroying your car’s interior by dragging in all the salt and mud from the parking lot.
  • Chains come in handy in a pinch when the roads are especially slick. Make sure they are the right size for your tires, and that you know how to install them before you need them.
  • Snow Brushes and Ice Scrapers are invaluable when you need to defrost and clear your windows of ice and the rest of your vehicle of snow. It saves you time and gas to scrape and brush instead of waiting for your defrosters to melt all of the ice.
  • A Snow Shovel is something you hope you never have to use, but you don’t want to be without. You can dig yourself out of a jam, or even make a snow fort in a survival situation. You never know!
