Winter Maintenance for your Car

winter

 

During the winter, you will want to make sure your vehicle is maintained and in proper condition. If it is not, parts may wear out sooner than they otherwise should. This will require you to bring the vehicle in for any repairs. If maintenance is ignored, a part may wear out and be expensive to fix. When there is an issue with the vehicle, it is always recommended to bring the vehicle in. Make sure to contact us and schedule an appointment. That way we can inspect it and look for the source of the issue.

Brake Repair

The brakes are an important part of the vehicle. If the brakes are spongy or soft, you will not have adequate brakes to slow or stop your car. When you notice that you need to press harder on the brakes, then the vehicle should be brought in. We will check the brake rotors and brake pads of it to make sure that everything is working properly. If there is a squealing noise from the vehicle, it could be the brake rotors. This is caused by metal on metal friction that can occur. If the brake rotors go out, then the brakes will be less effective when you are trying to stop the vehicle.

Check Tires in Winter

Checking the tires can also be important, especially in the winter. When it gets colder, you will notice they will lose air more frequently than they otherwise should. When the air pressure is low, often, make sure that you schedule an appointment so we can inspect it for you. The tires will also have to have the tread checked on them as well. Tread will help grip the surface of the road and help you keep control of the vehicle. If the roads are slick, having the best tread possible is important.
