WILMINGTON -- Falling temperatures can mean a drop in your car's performance and handling, but there are some things you can do to minimize problems.
Mechanics at Black's Tire pointed out what drivers need to look out for before hitting the road this winter.
They say to be sure to check for leaks under the hood and any tears in the belts. Also, make sure your tires have the correct amount of pressure in them, and don't forget to check the battery and windshield wipers.
Experts say those few steps can save you a big headache, and you should have your car inspected every summer and winter.
