Even though the cold weather is upon us, there's still plenty of time to get your vehicle ready for the worst of the winter months ahead. Between the snow, ice, darkness, and all around limited visibility, the winter can be an intimidating time to drive, but it doesn't have to be. There are many steps you can take at home and have done in our service center to ensure that your vehicle is ready to conquer whatever winter has in store. We're going to highlight some of the main areas of concern on your vehicle this winter, and tell you how you can get them taken care of in the quickest and most convenient manner around!

Areas That Could Benefit From Winter Car Care

  • Tires: Your tires are one of the most important parts of your entire vehicle all year round, but they become even more so in the winter. Your tires dictate your control, traction, stopping, and accelerating ability. Winter tires differ greatly from summer or all season tires because of the difference in tread and sipe density in the winter tire which creates a biting edge to better grip slippery and snowy roads. Whether you already have winter tires and you need them equipped or you're in need of new winter tires, our technicians can help you find a new set of tires or put your current tires on for you in a matter of minutes so you can get back on the roads around Yorkville and Utica in no time.
  • Motor Oil: Changing your oil may have not been the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to winter car service, but winter is one of the most important times of the year to check and see if your motor oil is clean and filled properly. In the cold weather, it can take some time for your motor oil to heat up, especially if it's conventional oil instead of synthetic. We welcome you to bring your vehicle in for an oil change and we'll make sure that your engine is protected and properly lubricated to take on the next few thousand miles with ease.
  • Battery: There's nothing worse than needing to be somewhere only for your battery to fail and prevent your vehicle from starting. We can run a battery diagnostics check and replace your battery if need be so you'll never be left in the cold waiting for a jump.
  • Maintain Visibility: With the combination of the heavy snows we see around Rome, Oneida and Manlius, NY and the fact that it gets dark so early in the winter, it's important that you can see at all times. We can make sure that your vehicle is ready to take on dark and stormy weather, first by checking and replacing any light bulbs to ensure you have the right illumination. Next, we can check and change your windshield wiper blades and top off your fluid, so you can keep a clean, clear windshield at all times.
  • Heater: It's perhaps one of the most important things that you need working during the winter, your heating system. In Yorkville and all over Utica and Oneida, temperatures can get down to arctic conditions. If your heater is failing to provide you with the heat you need to stay warm, we welcome you to bring it in and we'll get it fixed and blowing hot air in no time.
