How to Prepare Your Chevrolet Vehicle for Winter

2019 Chevrolet Equinox | Forest City, PA

The winter season can add new driving hazards, like snow and ice, and accordingly require you to replace certain components of your vehicle. Prepare your Chevrolet vehicle for winter by inspecting your car’s parts and having a service technician repair them as needed. 

Battery

To help prevent your vehicle from being stranded with a dead battery, ensure that the battery terminals and cables are in good condition. If you see any corrosion on the posts and terminals, you should remove it. 

Tires

You may want to consider replacing your tires with snow tires so that you can have more traction on snowy roads. The changing temperatures can also affect your tire pressure, so be sure your tires are properly inflated. In addition, if your tires don’t have enough tread, you should have your tires replaced at a dealership’s service department.

Wiper blades

Wiper blades can help you have necessary visibility during snowstorms, so it’s important that you replace the wiper blades if they are not functioning properly. Wiper blades shouldn’t miss spots or leave streaks. You may also want to use winter wiper blades, which can help prevent ice buildup.

We at Hornbeck Chevrolet encourage you to visit our service department to have your vehicle properly inspected and have components repaired or replaced.
