Recommended Winter Maintenance

  • Tire Inspection: You want to ensure your tires have the right level of pressure. Also, you should check for any damage to your tire’s tread and check the tread level. Finally, you may want to consider changing to winter tires.
  • Battery Test & Inspection: Make sure that your battery will be able to start during the coldest days of the year. Be sure to inspect your battery for any signs of corrosion. Corrosion will appear as orange and green patches on the battery or battery connector. Also, you will want to inspect the cold crank amperage.
  • Brake Inspection: Make sure that your vehicle can stop on icy roads. Check for any signs of excessive brake wear. If you hear a squealing sound when braking, then you should send your car, truck, or SUV to our service center today.
  • Check Wiper Blades: Don’t let snow or sleet pile up on your windshield. Check your windshield wipers to ensure that they can clear your windshield easily. If you see any peeling rubber on the wiper blades or if the wiper blades are bent, then have them replaced immediately.
  • Change Washer Fluid to Winter Blend: Don’t let your washer fluid freeze on you. Change your wiper fluid to a winter blend so you can easily clean your windshield when needed.
  • HVAC Inspection: Keep your vehicle cabin nice and comfortable during the coldest days of the year. Check your complete HVAC system, including the heater, defroster, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers.
  • Replace Engine Antifreeze: You will also want to check the antifreeze in your vehicle. If the antifreeze level is low, then you should have it topped off. If it has been more than 30,000 miles since your last antifreeze change, then visit us for antifreeze replacement service.
  • Windshield Crack & Chip Inspection: Don’t let a cracked or chipped windshield reduce your visibility during winter driving. We provide affordable windshield repair service.
  • Prepare a Roadside Safety Kit: Be prepared for anything. Prepare a roadside safety kit complete with flares, road hazard signs, and a first aid kit.
