It's November, and you’ve probably already seen a few premature Christmas trees, a sure sign that winter is coming. While the season brings holiday cheer and cozy nights huddled in front of a crackling fire, it can also bring damage to your car. Many problems are preventable if you know what to be aware of, but that doesn’t change the fact that winter is the most dangerous time to drive. Accidents happen and vehicles are totaled or simply break down, and Junk Car Cash Out will be there for you when that happens. We're here to let you know your options and provide you with service that allows you to get the most out of your car.
What’s So Dangerous About Winter, Anyway?
There are many ways a vehicle can become damaged in this cold and snowy season. The damage can work slowly, building up and wearing down your car for years until it’s finally had enough, or it can total your car in one go. The following are some of the ways winter can wreak havoc on your car:
• Road salt
• Low tire pressure
• Thickening fluids
• Flood damage from melting snow
• Road conditions
The salting of roads in the winter is a danger many people don’t think about. When road salt gets stuck to the body and bottom of your car, it can gradually corrode the metal parts.This starts to be a safety problem when it eats away at the undercarriage and brakes. And no one likes the look of rust, either.
Winter brings cold weather which causes air, including the air in your tires, to compress, resulting in lower tire pressure. Under-inflated tires are more susceptible to damage and do not perform as well. Cold weather also means thicker fluids, such as oil, brake, and transmission fluids. At colder temperatures, these fluids don’t flow as quickly or smoothly, affecting functioning.
In periods of warmer weather, melting snow is also a danger as a large amount could cause flood damage. Snowy and icy road conditions, however, are the biggest dangers to a car. Even the best drivers can slide through a slick patch of black ice and get into an accident, damaging their cars in ways that may be irreparable.
What to Do with a Winter Damaged Vehicle
Your options mostly depend on the amount of damage done to your car. If the damage is not too great and you can fix all issues for less than the car is worth, repairs may be the way to go. However, it’s a different case if your car is a “total loss,” as insurance agencies would say. This means that the cost of repairing the car is more than the worth of the car, and selling it as a “junk” car would be the best option. Any money earned could go towards a brand new car or a trip you’ve been waiting to take until you had the funds. Also, the holiday season, aka the season of giving, will soon be upon us, and it would probably be nice to have some extra cash on hand, cash you could earn from selling your car to us.
