Michigan's weather is full of surprises, which is why you'll want to get a head start on winter car maintenance. Dangerous road conditions are sometimes inevitable during this snowy and icy season. By taking care of your vehicle's vital components, you'll be out of harm's way and have a safer bet when driving. Check out our website for multiple winter car care and vehicle maintenance tips.

Winter Car Care Tips

On our Winter Car Care Page you can find more information on:

  • Tires: It's important to maintain your tires, especially during the winter season. Winter tires may be a better bet on your vehicle due to their aggressive and deeper tread. Click on the link to read more about the difference between winter and all-season tires as well as other tire maintenance tips.
  • Batteries: As the weather grows colder, your car's battery life may start to slowly stop functioning. A typical battery will last three to five years. If you're unsure about your vehicle's battery life, you may want to get it checked out by a trained professional. Follow the link to learn more about the effects of winter weather on your battery.
  • Brakes: Your vehicle's brakes are an essential part of its daily function. That means that they should be in the best shape during the winter. It will take you longer to stop your vehicle completely when there is snow and ice on the ground, so it's crucial to make sure they are in tip-top condition. There are lots of signs that your brakes may be due for a change. Visit the link to learn more about them.
  • Oil Changes: Performing a routine oil change on your vehicle will increase its life and ensure that your engine's parts are properly lubricated. Cold temps can make it harder for the oil to flow smoothly, which is why it's necessary to get your oil checked during the winter season. To check out the signs of whether your car needs an oil change, click on the link.
  • Wiper Blades: Wiper blades are the essential part in keeping your windshield clear. To ensure you're safe on the road this winter, make sure your wiper blades aren't making any funny noises or leaving streaks. You'll want to know for sure that they'll be able to wipe away any snow, sleet, or rain this winter season. Follow the link to view our full list of signs you need to change your wiper blades.
