Summer is coming to an end, which means it’s about that time to prepare your vehicle for the dropping temperatures. Before it gets too cold, take the time to address any issues that your vehicle may have and schedule an appointment for some routine maintenance items. Here are a few tips from our Green Bay mechanic team at Dorsch.
Heater and Defroster
The last thing you want is to be stuck somewhere without any heat. Having your car’s heating system looked at before the cold weather hits is essential. This way, if there are any issues with the system, you can have them addressed with plenty of time to spare.
Tires & Brakes
Bald tires are dangerous no matter the season, but slick, icy winter road conditions make tire quality an important issue. If your tires are low on tread, you’d be smart to have new ones put on before the first snowfall. Just as proper tire tread is particularly important during winter, so are well operating brakes. Harsh driving conditions require your vehicle to be in the best shape it can be, and that includes the brakes. Whether you need completely new brakes or just a good cleaning, it’s a good idea to have that done now.
Wipers & Fluids
If your wipers are looking a bit dry and cracked, you’ll want to replace them now. Our mechanics can help you find a great set of wipers that will make driving in snowy conditions much easier. We’ll also make sure your essential fluid levels – washer fluid, antifreeze, etc. – are all up to par.
