That way you're ready, should Mother Nature send an early winter surprise. Here are five things that you should do in order to be as safe on the road as possible:

1. Check Heater And Defroster

This is the time of year, you'll be wanting the car to be toasty warm on cool mornings. Check to ensure that the heater and defroster are working well. If you find any issues, take it in to be looked at, so that you're not stuck driving home in a chilly car after a long day of work.

2. Rotate Tires

If you haven't done this in a while, now's the perfect time to. But before you do that, check the tread to ensure that they're not too worn out. If they are, replace them. Also make sure they have the correct air pressure, so that you're operating it efficiently.

3. Change The Oil

This is a task that you know you need to do regularly. But do you? If you're soon due for an oil change, or if it's past due, get this taken care of. This helps extend the life of your vehicle and makes it run more smoothly. It's an easy enough task that you can learn. And you can save money by taking the DIY approach.

4. Check Windshield Wipers And Lights

As rain and snow sometimes start unexpectedly, it's important to have your windshield wipers in tip-top shape. These are an inexpensive and easy to replace.

5. Make Sure Your Auto Insurance Is Up To Date
