Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter
Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter in Inver Grove Heights, MN
At Volkswagen Inver Grove, we have years of experience maintaining and repairing vehicles that regularly operate through blistery winter weather. Preparing your vehicle for another frigid Minnesota winter is about ensuring essential performance components known for relatively short service life are in excellent condition. We know that most of your vehicle’s essential performance components are no longer experiencing summer and are now experiencing fall weather, but winter is right around the corner.
Winter preparation includes routine maintenance services that can benefit our customers in knowing that their vehicle is in excellent condition when winter arrives. Although many winter preparation services can be done yourself, we are always here and ready to help you prepare your vehicle with most services qualifying for Express Service without a prior appointment. Here is an overview of our most popular winter preparation services:
Tire Inspection, Tread Depth & Inflation Pressure Checks – with slick roads ahead, a tire inspection is valuable for reliable performance and knowing exactly when to replace tires to reduce risks. We can also measure the remaining tread depth and check and adjust the inflation pressure as needed to establish factory specifications. If you need new tires or want to switch to a winter seasonal tire, we can get that done for you quickly and conveniently.
Battery Inspection & Testing – a highly trained technician inspects the battery for case damage and then uses a specialized electrical testing instrument to evaluate cold-cranking amps and reserve capacity. Batteries failing the inspection or test can get replaced with a battery from our parts department.
Oil & Filter Change – draining the old engine oil and oil filter and then installing fresh engine oil and oil filter to establish factory specifications.
Coolant/Antifreeze Exchange – draining the old antifreeze, inspecting the entire engine cooling system, and installing fresh coolant/antifreeze to establish factory specifications.
