Take care of yourself and your car this winter by keeping up with your vehicle’s maintenance. You don’t want to be stranded on the side of the road because you skipped an easy auto service. Fluids, for example, are easy to refill during a check-up appointment. Simply keeping them filled makes it harder for the weather to affect them.

Check on these fluids:

  • Brake fluids
  • Coolant
  • Motor oil
  • Windshield wiper fluid
  • Gas

Another easy way to stay on the road this winter is through your tires. The more traction you have, the better. We recommend checking your tires for the following:

  • Tire pressure (the dash will often indicate low pressure)
  • Tire tread (do this through the penny test*)

If you don’t have the time to do these tasks, our skilled professionals can do it for you at an affordable cost. Make an appointment at our St. Louis Park location today!

 

*The Penny Test – Simply insert a penny into your tire’s tread groove with Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, your tread depth is less than 2/32 inch and it’s time to replace your tires.
