With colder weather on the horizon, getting your car ready for winter becomes more important than ever. At Winn Volkswagen of Woodland Hills, we know how crucial it is to take excellent care of your VW during one of the harshest times of the year. Our winter car care services can help protect your vehicle and make your drives a bit easier, whether you hail from Canoga Park, Reseda, Encino, or the San Fernando Valley Region.
Winter is one of the most challenging seasons of the year for any vehicle. Freezing temperatures can make your VW more vulnerable to breakdowns, while bad weather and icy roads make accidents more likely. Our winter car care services ensure that your VW is in peak mechanical condition and safe to operate under wintertime conditions.
There’s plenty you can do to winterize your car, starting with a tire inspection. Your tires need sufficient tread to achieve the best traction under winter driving conditions. Now is also an excellent time to change to snow tires if you own a set and regularly drive in areas where you can benefit from the added traction.
A roadside safety kit is a must for any VW owner, as it’ll contain everything needed to deal with breakdowns and other emergencies. It’s also important to inspect this kit each year and keep it stocked with up-to-date items. You should also include a warm blanket and plenty of water with your safety kit. Don’t forget about your windshield washer fluid either, as summer blends formulated for warmer temperatures can freeze when exposed to prolonged cold. Change your washer fluid to a winter blend before cold weather arrives.
