Top 5 Must-Buy Winter Car Accessories

  • Remote Engine Start: helps you remotely start your vehicle, as well as pre-heat the cabin so that you can remain comfortable and cozy as soon as you sit behind the wheel.
  • Engine Heater: is a must-have considering how often the weather dips below sub-zero, as it keeps the engine warm and the powertrain running efficiently. 
  • All-Season Floor Mats and Cargo Liner: keep off debris, winter salt, snow and dirt from the floor and cargo area of your vehicle.
  • Emergency Road Kit: helps you in case of an emergency, especially when you’re stranded on the roadside waiting for assistance. This emergency kit will have things like a phone charger, jumper cables, extra batteries and a snow shovel to help you stay equipped all the time. 
  • Windshield Cover: eliminates the hassle of scraping snow from your windshield by preventing snow, ice or frost from touching the glass. You can put the cover on when leaving your car parked for longer and come back and pull off the cover when you’re ready to go.
