Winter Is Coming

Here is your annual reminder that winter is coming! Whether you are ready or not the cold weather cant stay away forever. Lets go over a few tips and tricks to keep you and your vehicle going through the winter.

  1. Battery – Having a strong battery that is in good health is important. When the weather gets cold it takes its tole on our batteries. In order to ensure your vehicle has the best chance of starting when its cold be sure to have your batteries health tested.

  2. Coolant- You should have your coolant tested before the weather gets too cold. If your coolant is not mixed correctly it could freeze causing damage to the coolant system. You should also have your windshield washer fluid checked at that time to ensure that it is rated for the cold.

  3. Heat- It would not be fun to get into your vehicle on the first cold morning to find your heat not working. It is always important to test your heat to ensure it is working properly before the winter. Knowing whether or not you need repairs will help you schedule the vehicle in on your time. Instead of having the vehicle in the shop when you need it.

  4. Tires- Whether you use winter tires or just keep your all season tires on all year round this is a good time to think about your tires. If you do use winter tires now is the best time to get them installed. Once the first snow fall happens everyone panics and rushes to get their tires on. You could beat this rush by thinking ahead and having your tires installed early. If you run all season tires all year round now would be a good time to have them inspected. Weather cracks and tread wear can effect the tires performance in the snow.

These are just a few things to remember when preparing your vehicle for the winter months ahead. We recommend having the vehicle looked over before winter hits. We offer a wonderful inspection package we call the “Semi Annual Inspection” this includes a multi-point inspection & oil change. Is your vehicle winter ready???
