Our Top Ten Recommended Services for Winterizing Your Volkswagen

  1. HVAC Inspection: As the weather gets cold, you want to stay warm, which is why we’ll look over your HVAC system. We’ll pay special attention to the seat and steering wheel warmers, the defrost, and the heating systems.
  2. Tire Inspection: We can check your tread and pressure and help switch your tires for snow tires if needed.
  3. Battery Inspection: We’ll check your battery, it’s housing, the connections, and the serpentine belt to make sure everything is working correctly with your battery.
  4. Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection: Cracks and chips can be negatively affected by cold weather, so it’s optimal to find them before they get worse.
  5. Brake Inspection: Nothing keeps you safe on icy and wet roads like the brakes, and that’s why we make sure to check every part of your brakes to make sure they’re in order.
  6. Battery Testing: Our experts can check to see how much energy your battery can receive, store, and produce, and that lets us know if you need a new battery or not.
  7. Windshield Wiper Check: Windshield wipers are vital for maintaining your visibility in inclement weather, so we want to make sure they’re working well for you before the winter comes.
  8. Change Washer Fluid: To avoid freezing, you should change your washer fluid to a winter blend.
  9. Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze: The engine coolant keeps the engine from overheating, and it has antifreeze in it to keep it from freezing when not in use. It’s best to have these levels at their maximum.
  10. Roadside Safety Kit: We can help you determine what’s best to keep in your roadside emergency safety kit.
