Here at Sansone Mazda, we’re not just the New Jersey Mazda dealership that you can rely on for new and pre-owned cars and SUVs the whole family will enjoy. We’re also dedicated to keeping you and your Mazda CX-5 safe—no matter what the open road might bring. That’s why our expert team is here to help you prepare your vehicle for the winter roads, so you can celebrate the holidays and enjoy the new year with peace of mind.

When it comes to your Mazda CX-5’s winter car prep, it’s a good idea to start with an emergency kit, in the event that the worst might happen. A basic kit will include medical supplies, non-perishable food, water, blankets, and an ice pick or brush. If you want to take it up a step, you can also add a spare set of clothing, an emergency phone with an extra battery pack, and a shovel. If you’re worried about traction, it’s a good idea to add kitty litter or sand to your vehicle, as they both work in a pinch if you encounter slippery conditions.

Next, you’ll want to bring your Mazda CX-5 down here to Sansone Mazda so our team can complete a winter inspection and make any repairs or changes that need to be made. We’ll check your tires for signs of wear and change them out for winter tires if we believe it necessary. We’ll check your fluids and fill any levels that are low, and we’ll test out your brakes. Belts and hoses are particularly susceptible to damage in cold temperatures and batteries can lose up to 50% of their capacity in weather below freezing, so we’ll inspect and upgrade those as necessary too.
