COLLEGE STATION -- Cold weather isn't just hard on our bodies, it's hard on our cars too.

With winter on the way you're going to want to make sure your car is ready so you don't get stranded on the side of the road.

And one way to ensure your car stays running this winter is to make sure you have a good battery because the colder temps can drain it.

Kirk Gladney Holland with Aggieland Automotive says, "The cold weather definitely takes effect on the battery. It has to work a little harder just like we do when it's hot outside or cold outside, the battery works the same way. It's harder on the car to get started so it's good to have that checked along with your wiper blades and the engine coolant."

Holland also says another important thing to check is the air in your tires because for every ten degrees it drops outside, your tires lose about a pound of pressure.
