After all, feeling protected will allow you to enjoy these drives so much more!

#1: Get maintenance repairs done now. Have your oil checked, air filter cleaned, windshield wiper fluid filled…or anything else that should be done! You don’t want any car problems in this cold weather…trust us!
#2: Check your tires. All those summer road trips have definitely done work on your tires. Make sure the pressure is good to go and if you haven’t rotated them lately, it might be a good idea!
#3: Anti-freeze. You never know when you are going to need it! Though it is not winter, it is common to see frost on your windows!
#4: Keep a brush in your trunk. This is prudent when preparing for the fall season. Those leaves will be falling before you know it…right onto your car! Then it will rain…and wet leaves are definitely not fun!
#5: Check your insurance policy. Wet leaves on the side of the road can be very dangerous. Don’t be surprised if they cause an accident! Having Alaska auto insurance will be sure to cover the costs of any damages or medical costs in the event of an accident.
