Discover Our Top Winter Car Care Tips
With the recent change in seasons, it’s easy to get caught up in fall’s glorious weather. Leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp, and football games are plentiful. However, we all know that winter is coming, and with it, the extreme temperatures that can wreak havoc with your automobile. That’s why we’ve put together these top tips from the factory-trained experts in our Service Center; follow them, and your car will be ready for the long months ahead.
Check your oil and other essential fluids, making sure to change them if needed before cold weather hits and topping them off throughout the winter months.
Examine your battery carefully, along with your spark plugs and any wiring. The extremely cold weather can quickly finish off a weak battery, and winter is not the time to find yourself stranded after dark.
Take a look at all of the lights on your vehicle to make sure they’re working properly, and change any bulbs that are dim or burned out.
Check out your windshield wipers. If they appear to be stiff or cracked, go ahead and change them now.
Consider making a small investment in a set of snow tires that are mounted on inexpensive steel rims. The tires provide better traction in winter weather, and keeping them on their own set of rims makes it easy to change them out come spring.
If you’d like to make sure that your vehicle is fully set to make it through this winter, schedule an appointment with the experts in our Service Center. We’re open six days a week, and happy to serve our customers from the Cleveland, Parma OH, Garfield Heights, Westlake OH, and Solon OH areas.
