When winter rolls around in the Lower Mainland it can be a harsh reality for our usual temperate reality here on the west coast. And the same can be said for what your vehicle goes through during the winter months, trying to operate under variable weather conditions season after season.
Which is why it’s important to winterize your vehicle, considering these ‘Hudson Auto Winter Maintenance Musts’ in order to keep your Christmas season merry and bright!
Regular Auto Maintenance Matters
Sometimes it’s the most basic things that make the biggest difference, and your vehicle qualifies for this same thought process.
Basic maintenance matters, which includes such things as…
- Pre-Winter Oil Change – before the cold weather becomes a daily reality, ensure you have the right oil under the hood. The wrong oil can thicken under colder temperatures, making it more difficult for your car to start. Allow us to help you prevent this with our winter oil change service in Langley!
- Fluid Top-Ups – are also important in keeping your vehicle running smoothly. This is the time to get your coolant flushed and filled, along with your windshield washer fluid filled; all things we offer during your oil change service in Langley.
- Wiper Replacement – is a definite must, keeping your windshield free of road splatter and your vision clear during dark winter nights.
- Battery Check – is another auto maintenance must as it can take a big hit during the colder months. In fact, your battery can decrease in efficiency by 50% during the winter, so having it checked, charged and even possibly replaced, is important to keep your vehicle in good running condition all winter long.
