With the onset of winter and the recent snow come many factors which need to be considered to ensure that your vehicle is safe for winter driving. From installing snow tires, having a brake inspection, and checking the antifreeze ratio in your cooling system, Pearl Street Automotive is your Waukesha automotive repair service that provides affordable winter maintenance for your vehicle.
Freezing temperatures can lead to unnecessary mechanical problems and expensive auto repairs and towing costs if you do not take the necessary preventative measures to ensure that your vehicle is mechanically sound throughout the winter months. Often times our schedules can become very busy and before you know it comes the arrival of snow and the blistery cold temperatues. Neglecting these necessities can result in unreliable transportation, as well as hazardous operating conditions for you and your loved ones.
One of the most common mechanical failures during the cold winter months is that vehicles have trouble starting. Often times numerous factors such as corroded battery connections, a weak battery, or even degraded engine oil can contribute to this dilemma and leave you standing out in the cold. That is why having a simple winter maintenance inspection can help in preventing problems before they happen.
Although most of us would prefer not to drive during a snow storm, sometimes it simply cannot be avoided because we have to get to work, a business meeting, or to a friend or relative’s for the holidays. Driving in these conditions can be especially dangerous when the salty slush from the road is thrown onto the windshield of your vehicle. And nothing is worse than pushing the windshield washer button to clean your windshield and either it emits diluted washer fluid that applies an icy coat, or nothing happens because the lines are frozen altogether. Certainly it has happened to everyone at least once and it can be very scary! Unfortunately either one of these scenarios leave you hazardously braving your travels and placing yourself, loved ones, and other drivers in harms way. Again, that is why having a simple winter maintenance inspection can help in preventing problems before they happen.
Pearl Street Automotive is more than happy to provide you with safe and affordable winter vehicle maintenance service to ensure that your winter driving experience is safe for everyone.
