Now is the time for an oil change, so you don't have contaminated/acidic oil stewing in your crankcase over the winter.

In the spring, I check/adjust the tire pressure, start it up and go driving. It's basically the same routine I've used with motorcycles for the past couple of decades - no problems so far. Hope you have a few more weeks of pleasurable driving before the snow flies ...
That is pretty much what I have done.... Plus i live in the cold cold dark, windy praries. so cold! LOL
