Winter Preparation in St. Joseph, MO

If you're a new vehicle owner or not used to having to deal with harsh winters, you likely are at a bit of a loss when it comes to preparing your vehicle for winter. You want to ensure that it will keep running at optimal levels. Of course, you can research all you want and do some tasks yourself to get your automobile ready. However, it's necessary to bring it to a reputable auto services location such as Rolling Hills Honda.

Get Your Honda Ready for the Winter

When it comes to the change in seasons, there are several routine maintenance tasks that should be undertaken by a company like Rolling Hills Honda:

  • Tire Inspection: When you've been driving a fair amount for a while, the treads on your tires can get worn out. A qualified technician should take a look to ensure they're still in good shape, as well as check the pressure levels.
  • Brake Inspection: The brakes on your vehicle are one of the most important things (after the transmission and engine, of course). You'll need to keep them in good working order. During the winter, the roads are especially slippery and you'll need to have your brakes in tip-top shape.
  • Wiper Blade Inspection: Your windshield wipers need to operate well to keep visibility high when you're dealing with snow and those foggy or gray winter days.
  • Washer Fluid Change: Your washer fluid should be changed to a winter blend before the winter since it's stronger and will keep your windshield clear even better. We'll also replace your antifreeze and engine coolant if necessary.
  • Windshield Chip & Crack Inspection: Our team will use advanced methods to detect any problem areas on your windshield that could become worse. Chips and cracks can lead to more significant issues, especially during the winter, when you may have to deal with hail, ice, and more.
  • Battery Test & Inspection: It won't do you any good to have your battery fail to work when you go to start your car. In fact, it can be disastrous during the winter, especially. We'll test your battery, doing a full inspection to be sure it's not wearing down and likely to malfunction. If we don't have a replacement battery on hand, we should be able to put in an order for you to receive it quickly.
  • Roadside Safety Kit: It's important to have a full roadside safety kit in your vehicle when you're traveling in St. Joseph, MO, and beyond. We'll check to see you have all you need and help you find those items you're missing.
  • HVAC Inspection: We'll check that your heater is working properly and troubleshoot any small problems before they become larger, as well as other heating features in your vehicle like seat warmers and the defrost function.
