Check Tires

Your vehicle’s tires are critical to road safety. Be sure to check that you have adequate tread levels on each tire. Also, check the tread and the sidewalls for any damage. If you plan to travel on roads with snow and ice, you should change to snow tires.

Inspect Brakes

Make sure that your vehicle has sufficient stopping power in winter conditions. If your vehicle has worn brake pads, be sure to visit our service center. Also, check to see if you have enough brake fluid.

Look at Your Vehicle’s Wiper Blades

You don’t want to deal with compromised viability while on the road in the winter. Check your vehicle’s wiper blades to ensure that they don’t have peeling rubber off bent blades.

Perform a Battery Test and Inspection

You don’t want to be stuck in winter weather with a dead battery. Be sure to inspect your vehicle’s battery for any signs of corrosion. Corrosion spots can appear on the battery casing or battery terminals. Also, check the cold cranking amperage of the battery.

Check or Replace Engine Antifreeze

Has it been more than two years since you replaced the antifreeze in your vehicle? Then make sure that you give your vehicle antifreeze service before the first cold front arrives.

Perform a Windshield Crack & Chip Inspection

Small windshield cracks can expand in the winter months. Now is the time to repair those windshield cracks and chips. Our service center offers affordable pricing on windshield repair service.

Change Washer Fluid to Winter Blend

Did you know that your vehicle’s washer fluid can potentially freeze in cold weather? Make sure to change your vehicle’s washer fluid to a winter blend.

Check the Vehicle’s HVAC System

Maintain a comfortable temperature in your vehicle’s cabin all winter long. Be sure to inspect the heater, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers. Also, be sure to check the defroster.

Prepare a Roadside Safety Kit

Finally, be prepared for anything. Have a roadside safety kit ready to go. The kit should include flares, road hazard signs, a first aid kit, and a spare blanket.
