Visit our showroom today and let us help you get the most out of your vehicle.

Check Battery Voltage

Your vehicle’s battery ensures the engine starts every time, making it vital to check its voltage, especially during winter. Cold temperatures can negatively impact your vehicle’s battery, but you must replace it if it has an insufficient voltage for normal operation.

Change Engine Oil & Filter

Winter can be challenging for your engine since it has to experience colder temperatures that add stress during cold starts. However, you can prepare your vehicle’s engine for winter by changing its oil and replacing the filter, providing maximum lubrication and smooth performance.

Fill Fluids To Proper Levels

Your vehicle has multiple vital systems that require fluids to operate optimally, and the cold can further stress those systems. You don’t want to have low fluids since that can cause mishaps during winter, so you will want to check your engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and power steering fluid if applicable.

Clean Your Vehicle Inside & Out

The harsh winter climate requires most areas to use salt to prevent ice from forming on roads, but that salt will make it onto your vehicle’s paint, underbody, and interior. To care for your vehicle during winter, you will want to clean the paint often, wash any salt off the underside, and clean the carpet to avoid salt damage.

Replace Wiper Blades

Winter can bring adverse weather conditions affecting your vehicle’s windshield visibility, so you will need good working wiper blades to see ahead and continue driving safely.
