Winter Car Maintenance Checklist 

Check Your Tires

The cold temperatures of the winter can greatly affect your tires pressure. Lower tire pressure decreases your gas mileage and also can wear the tires out faster. It is also important to check the tread depth. 

The classic penny test should signify if you need new tires. Simply place the penny with Lincoln's head facing you, and stick the penny in the tread so that the top of Lincoln's head is no longer visible. If his entire head is visible while in the groove, it's time to replace your tires.

You may also want to consider using snow tires to get through heavy snow on rough terrain, which can help driving on snowy and slippery roads.

Receiving tire services such as wheel alignment and wheel balancing are encouraged as well. 

Inspect and Test Your Battery

Battery failures are common in the winter due to cold temperatures. A battery inspection and replacement should be a top priority to prevent any unexpected no starts or breakdowns. 

Change Your Oil, Brakes, Lights, and Wiper Blades

Oil changes are a staple and should be done regularly regardless of the season. Your brakes in the winter will be worn down quicker due to a mixture of cold, snow, sleet, salt, and icy conditions. Your exterior lights and wiper blades are components that keep you and other drivers safe as it directly impacts your vision on the roads.

Stay Warm and Stay Prepared

On the interior, make sure your heater is actively working for all your trips. If your vehicle's heating and defogging system are defective, our certified technicians will help repair the system for you.
