Fall & Winter Vehicle Maintenance Reminder

Have your vehicle checked for winter driving conditions now.

That time of year has come again, WINTER is Here!

Now is when your vehicle needs special attention to be sure this season is as trouble-free as possible.


  • Batteries need to be checked before they go bad - usually happens when we get the first couple of COLD days - you do not want to be left stranded.
  • Engine Cooling System needs to be checked for proper antifreeze protection, coolant level and condition - it can cost you a bundle if not correct.  Remember Do Not drive your vehicle with a coolant leak/problem - serious engine damage could result. 
  • Tires need to be checked for excessive or abnormal wear & dry-rot - you don't want to find out when you are stuck or with a flat tire.
  • Wiper Blades & Washer Fluid need to be checked to make sure you can see during bad weather. Ask about High Performance Wiper Blades!!


  • Air Conditioning needs to be checked for proper operation - The vehicle needs the air conditioner to properly defrost the windows.

Well aside from these great tips, I would recommend auto shops to use a reminder system that will notify us with our regular car tune-ups. Auto Services should really consider using Sked.ly - http://sked.ly
