Winterizing Your Vehicle

“Winterize” is a term you see thrown around a lot at mechanic shops and auto parts stores. What does it actually entail though?

We at Performance Automotive, Inc in San Diego, CA have prepared some tips for you, to help you better understand what it means to winterize a car, and how to prepare for the months ahead.
