Ken Klein’s Auto Service said drivers should have their tires, engine fluids, and batteries checked before winter is officially here.

Owner Ken Klein says pay particular attention to your battery as newer technologies and technology systems in our cars create a bigger demand for battery power.

Klein said people should also get their car washed when it starts snowing in order to clean off the salt and sand.
