The winter season in California can get pretty wet, and rainy weather can mean slick roads for quite some time. Fortunately, our Mazda service team at Star Mazda is here to provide you with some tips and tricks for how you can stay safe through this wet winter season.

That said, there are many ways you can stay safe through California’s winter rain season. One way is to purchase a new set of tires. Your tires are your main tool of traction on the road, even when it is slick with rain. An old set of tires may ride fine on dry days, but when the winter storms hit, you can be left hydroplaning. For this reason, we always suggest having your tires at least inspected before the worst of the winter rain can hit, that way you can avoid a potential blow out or accident when the downpour starts.

Another way to stay safe during the rainy season is to purchase a new set of windshield wipers. Windshield wipers have a shelf life, and after so many uses can eventually cause more harm than good. Auto experts recommend that drivers change out their windshield wipers once every six months to a year. You can tell if your windshield wipers are old or worn if they leave long smears or streaks on your windows, and don’t completely clear rain off of your windshield.

With our help at Star Mazda you can take on the winter with complete peace of mind. Star Mazda is a Mazda dealership in Los Angeles that does more than just sell cars, we make the automotive experience as fulfilling and exciting as possible.
