Winter is picking up speed, so getting your vehicle prepared for cold weather should be a priority. Besides scheduling a service that includes an oil change and replenishing fluids, it’s a good idea to carry extra blankets, check your tires, replace your wiper blades, and safeguard your battery connections against freezing conditions.

For even more confidence during cold weather months, find out how the 2018 Subaru Forester’s technology works to keep you safe.
