You want to make sure that your vehicle has the proper braking power on snow and icy roads. Be sure to inspect your braking system. If you notice that your braking distance is longer than usual, be sure to visit our service center right away.
Be sure to inspect each of your tires. This includes the tire’s tread for signs of excessive wear. Also, check the sidewalls for cracks and any damage. You may also want to consider changing out to winter tires for better traction on icy roads.
You don’t want to deal with a dead battery during a snowstorm. Check to see if your battery is providing the right amount of cold cranking power. You can use a battery tester or take your vehicle to our service center for a complete battery test and inspection.
Did you know that your vehicle’s washer fluid can freeze up in the winter? That’s why you will want to check your washer fluid to a winter blend.
During the winter, your wiper blades will be working overtime. Therefore, you will want to check for any signs of excessive wear on your wiper blades. Be sure to check for any peeling rubber or bent wiper blades.
Make sure that your cabin is comfortable and that you can adequately defrost your vehicle’s windows. Run a check out on your vehicle’s heater, defroster, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers.
You don’t want to have your engine freeze during a winter storm. Be sure to check your vehicle’s antifreeze levels. If needed, be sure to have your vehicle’s antifreeze replaced.
Small window cracks can expand quickly in the cold winter weather. Make sure you repair any chips or cracks on your vehicle’s windshield. At our service center, we provide fast and affordable windshield crack and chip repair service.
Be prepared for the worst. Prepare a roadside safety kit that includes flares, hazard signs, a first ad kit, and extra supplies.
