From starting your day with ice scraper in hand to getting caught in an afternoon blizzard, winter weather certainly throws a few more steps into our daily travel routines. With the official start of winter here, we decided to put together a list of the best winter accessories for our local Nissan drivers in Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton. Check them out below!
Winter Accessory #1: All-Season Floor Mats
Make your interior immune to snowy stomps and salt trails by investing in a set of all-season floor mats that can stand up to all of winter’s elements and serve you year-round. Our parts and accessories department sells these easy-to-clean stay-put footwell wonders for an array of our Nissan models. Just select your model and year for the perfect custom fit.
Winter Accessory #2: Ice-Ready Wiper Blades
When winter weather hits, keeping your view clear is paramount, which is why updating or upgrading your wiper blades is the second must-have accessory on our list. Buy a set of extra-durable blades that have the added range to send snow sailing in one swipe and the strength to power through ice and freezing rain as it’s coming down. The last thing you want is to end up with a windshield that’s quickly icing over and a wiper blade that’s broken in three.
Winter Accessory #3: Emergency Road Kit
An emergency road kit is a ride-along essential at any time of year. But because winter can be so hard on our vehicles and outdoor conditions are less than ideal for hanging around for a tow, replacing your old kit with a winter-ready version is a wise investment. You can make your own or order one to toss in your Nissan’s trunk. A few essentials you want to include are bottled water, a blanket, a first aid kit, jumper cables, a flashlight, a small tool set, and non-perishable snacks.
Winter Accessory #4: Winter or All-Season Tires
Taking on winter conditions with summer tires is sure to have you sliding more than driving. Winter tires elevate traction and handling when the temperature drops, giving you a better overall grip and control in slick situations. With Massachusetts’ winter weather record, seeking out a quality set of winter-specific or all-season tires is definitely worth the money for your peace of mind and stability when the snow starts to fall.
Winter Accessory #5: Headlight Defogger Kit
From December through February, when the daylight hours are few, we rely on our car’s outer lights more than ever. And you may have noticed that over time, a vehicle’s headlights tend to take on a cloudy sheen. This seemingly unstoppable film traps the bulb’s light from shining through to the other side.
Headlight defogger kits are fairly cheap and simple to use yourself. Pick one up to reveal the crystal clear lenses your Nissan had when it was new, which will help your winter drives be merry, and bright!
Winter can be especially rough on our cars. Investing in these items for your Nissan (or a friend’s!) can help you stay safe when winter’s wrath arrives. Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton area Nissan drivers can check out Nissan 24’s online parts and accessories department for final fixes and winter accessories.
