Our Top Ten Services for Winterizing Your Volkswagen

  1. Tire Inspection - Our experts will check the tread of your tires to make sure they're safe to drive in winter weather. They'll also check the tire pressure to make sure it's within normal limits and fix it if it isn't.
  2. Battery Inspection - The best way to know if you have battery concerns is to have one of our professionals look it over. They're sure to find anything amiss with your battery.
  3. Brake Inspection - Brakes are especially important during winter, and we'll assess your brakes' readiness to handle the icy weather and roads.
  4. Battery Testing - Testing your battery lets you know how much charge your battery can receive and distribute, and that can give you an idea of how well your battery will continue to provide sparks for the startup.
  5. Change Washer Fluid - Windshield washer fluid should be changed to a winter blend to avoid problems with freezing.
  6. Check Wiper Blades - Your windshield wiper blades play a more significant part in your driving experience during winter, so it's best to make sure they can handle the precipitation that will come during these winter months.
  7. Check/Replace Coolant and Antifreeze - Your coolant/antifreeze is two liquids in one, keeping your engine cool but also preventing the coolant system from freezing over, so it's best to have those fluid levels correct before heading into freezing weather.
  8. HVAC Inspection - We'll look over your climate control, paying particular attention to the seat warmers, steering wheel warmers, heater, and defrost system.
  9. Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection - It's always good to ensure your windshield isn't compromised, especially during colder weather.
  10. Roadside Safety Kit - We can help you know what kinds of things to keep in your emergency roadside safety kit, or you can prepare one yourself.
