Should I get my car looked at before the cold weather hits?

It’s always a good idea to have your vehicle inspected when the weather’s going to get cold.  You want to make sure that your cooling system is working properly, to confirm that your coolant is at the right strength and level.  You don’t want that system to freeze and cause damage.  You also want to make sure that your heater is working properly, before it get really cold.  When you bring your vehicle to us for a pre-winter check, we will look at all of these things, including making sure that your defroster is working properly and that your tires are at the proper pressure.  If you need snow tires put on, we can help you that also.  So give us a call, let’s get you in and have your vehicle inspected before the really cold weather arrives.


Cold Weather Tip

Our cold weather tip is to make sure that you fuel tank is alway half full.  The reason is twofold, with bad weather come bad traffic, and sometime that short drive can turn into a much longer one, so you want to make sure that you have enough fuel, so that you don’t run out.  Secondly this helps avoid moisture forming and your fuel lines possible freezing.
