Winter Maintenance Services

Recommended winter maintenance is designed for essential components at greater risk for threatening reliability and safety as summer ends with winter driving conditions ahead. Several essential components experience faster depreciation in summer’s heat yet need to be at peak performance for winter. Here are those components and recommended winter maintenance services:

  • HVAC Inspection: Enjoying a comfortable driving experience this winter requires heating components to function properly, so be sure to check the heater, defroster, steering wheel, and seat warmers.
  • Battery Testing: Winter maintenance should include battery testing and replacement if the reserve capacity or cold-cranking amps are not at factory specifications.
  • Tire Inspection: Ensure optimum traction, braking performance, and safety this winter with a tire inspection. Certified tire inspections include assessing irregular wear and damage, measuring tread depth, and adjusting air pressure. Many Volkswagen drivers install winter tread tires for optimum performance on snow-covered, icy roads.
  • Brake Inspection: Winter maintenance should include a comprehensive brake system inspection. Certified Brake inspections include a certified technician checking the pads, rotors, lines, calipers, and fluid.
  • Windshield Wiper Blades and Fluid: Ensure peak windshield clearing and visibility in snowy weather by checking and replacing the wiper blades if needed. Many drivers install a winter blend washer fluid for quick ice removal in sub-zero temperatures.
  • Coolant Fluid/Antifreeze: Prevent water from freezing within the engine cooling system with a coolant fluid/antifreeze inspection and exchange service if contaminated or at the recommended miles.
  • Roadside Safety/Emergency Kit: Be ready for the unexpected when driving in risky conditions with a roadside safety/emergency kit. Contact us for assistance ordering a genuine OEM kit from the accessories department.
