How To Get Your Vehicle Ready for Winter

VA in Snow

Winter is just around the corner and our team of auto mechanics at The Shop VA wants your vehicle during those colder months ahead to be prepared. Just like how you start to pull out your scarves and sweaters in preparation, you have to make sure aspects of your German vehicle are winterized. We are conveniently located near Richmond, North Chesterfield, and Midlothian.

Before we are dealing with the drop in temperatures, it’s important to have your car inspected. Certain components of your car has to work harder during winter, and our auto mechanics will thoroughly examine your vehicle for any signs of future or current problems. This way, your car can continue to run in tip-top shape during the upcoming months. These components of your car are susceptible to the onslaught of Mother Nature:

  • Windshield Wipers: Your windshield wipers are your first line of defense against the elements, so it’s crucial to have your blades inspected and replaced, if needed.
  • Battery: The colder the weather, the harder it is for your battery to start. Your battery has to work extra hard, as chemical reactions in your engine operate more slowly.
  • Defroster and Heater: During winter, you are going to be relying quite heavily on these components of your car, and our team of auto mechanics will make sure they are up for the challenge of the chilly months.
  • Fluids: As the temperature drops, the ratios in the levels of your fluids change as well. Our team will take a look at your fluids and make sure everything is good-to-go.

When you bring your vehicle to The Shop VA, we will perform a complete inspection, examining the components above and much more. Throughout the entire process, our team will be upfront and direct with you, educating you about the status of your car so you can make informed decisions.
