Proud of your new car bought after a long hard work? It is understandable if you want to coddle and shelter it in your garage during those dreadful months of winter, when driving a car turns out to be dangerous sometimes. Not to mention that wintertime demands from you to check your vehicle and visit the mechanic more often than when time is bright.
