Winter Maintenance Tasks We Can Complete at Our Rockville, MD Auto ShopAs winter quickly nears, it's important that your car is ready to handle challenging driving conditions. At Preferred Automotive, our local mechanics can expertly complete maintenance tasks that will help to keep your car driving safely and smoothly during the winter months.

Important Types of Winter Auto Maintenance

With slick roads and limited visibility, it's all the more important that your brakes are functioning optimally. Before the worst winter weather arrives, it's a good idea to visit the shop for a brake inspection and any needed brake maintenance. This is also a good time to replace wiper blades, which should be done at least annually, and often needs to be done twice per year. For winter driving, heavy duty blades are a smart choice. You'll also want to be sure that your wiper fluid is topped up. And for optimal visibility, it's wise to get your heater/defroster checked, which will also help to ensure that you're able to stay nice and toasty when the thermometer drops.

Another basic winter maintenance task is to make sure that your car is filled up with the right level of fresh antifreeze, which will help with keeping your engine from getting excessively cold---or hot.

While driving in cold weather, your windows will be rolled up. This makes it all the more important that an exhaust leak isn't present. At our shop, we can thoroughly inspect your exhaust system to make sure that toxic fumes are being safely routed to your tailpipe.

And before temperatures plummet, you should get your battery checked because frigid weather can be so harsh on it. By getting your battery checked, you can take comfort in knowing that it isn't especially likely to die and leave you stuck in the frozen landscape.
