Explore our ongoing service specials to help you find an affordable deal on your next vehicle service.

Tires

If you live in an area where you need winter tires on your vehicle, be sure to change those out before the winter storms arrive. No matter which tires you use though, be certain to maintain the correct tire pressure. Check your tread depth and change any tires that show excessive wear. Maintaining the correct tire pressure in your tires will help assure that you end up with equal tread wear and prevent your tires from wearing out early on you.

Battery

Your car's battery is an essential component of your vehicle. The cold weather makes it more difficult for your battery to operate, so it is imperative that yours is in good working order. Check for any shorts that can lead to your battery draining more quickly. Be sure the terminals are free of rust or corrosion and replace your battery before bad weather if anything isn't in good working order. Swapping out an old battery for a new one a bit early is much better than being stranded by the side of the road.

Coolant

To prevent your vehicle from freezing in cold weather, your car needs antifreeze. Double-check your coolant levels prior to the start of the freezing temperatures, and make sure that there are no leaks that could cause you to lose coolant. If you are low on coolant, you need to refill it to keep your car from freezing. Many mechanics recommend a 50-50 mixture of antifreeze and water, as the best way to prevent your engine from freezing.
