    All good tips. The AAA check list mentions cold-weather windshield washer fluid. If what you have in there now is for 32°F and above, use it up or drain it out. If you're traveling north, or from the warm lowlands into the sub-freezing mountains on a ski trip, replace that fluid or it will freeze.

    One problem with this article--the 50/50 antifreeze only protects to -30 degrees F. Many states have lower record temperatures. A 60/40 antifreeze will get down to -55; 70/30 can get down to -60 if you face extreme cold.
