Good to wash your car as much as possible during the winter as it has been established that salt eats cars…..if there is any exposed metal. Many local car wash companies have deals to encourage frequent use, shop around.
When buying a new car, the dealer will offer a package that puts extra proctectant on the upolstery and paint of the car. In the long run anything to help protect the car especially with Northeast winters is a good thing. Mother nature is certainly not forgiving...
Highly recommend getting these for the winter months. Totally saves the salt getting into the carpet. The best I’ve seen yet are from Weather-Tech and they are made to fit your car.

Rear wheel drive cars have the advantage in the winter time to have some fun with a fish-taily back end. Reminds me of some old school TV shows.
It pays to spend a few hundred bucks now on regular service maintenance as opposed to several thousand down the road because things weren’t looked after.
My Mom used to half tease me about this when I was a kid, i would dive into the task and wonder why I was failing! Simple things like tire pressure sensor monitors…save yourself some time and read the manual for the how-to’s.
Learned new thing today. Some vehicles have the ability to read what the tire pressures are for each tire so manual read not needed-love technology!
This is a simple way to understand what’s under the hood. http://www.automotivecare.com/your-engine-101/
