Getting Your Car Ready for Winter: a Top Ten List

  1. Tire Inspection - We'll look over your tires' tread and pressure, as well as provide you with snow tires if you so desire.
  2. HVAC Inspection - Our technicians will check your HVAC systems, especially your heating, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers, to make sure they can keep you warm in the winter weather.
  3. Change Washer Fluid - Your windshield washer fluid needs to be a winter blend to prevent freezing problems.
  4. Windshield Crack/Chip Inspection - We'll assess your windshield for cracks and chips that might compromise the integrity of your windshield when the colder weather comes in.
  5. Battery Testing - Cold weather can change how your battery functions, which is why we test your battery to make sure you won't be stranded out in the cold.
  6. Battery Inspection - An inspection checks all the external factors that could keep your battery from functioning as you need it, letting you know where important maintenance is needed.
  7. Brake Inspection - Brakes are essential to your safety, especially in the ice and snow. We'll find anything that needs to be addressed before you tackle driving in the wintry weather.
  8. Check Wiper Blades - Your windshield wiper blades keep your visibility intact, so they should be performing their best when winter precipitation threatens to diminish that visibility.
  9. Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze - Engine coolant has antifreeze, which prevents the system from freezing over. It's always good to keep those levels at their appropriate amount.
  10. Roadside Safety Kit - We can help you know what you might want to have on hand in an emergency so that you can put together your winter roadside safety kit.
