Volkswagen Winter Maintenance

Prepare Your Volkswagen Vehicle for the Winter

It’s always a good idea to take care of your car, but it’s even more important during the winter. From taking care of your tires to making sure your windshield wipers are in good shape, there are a lot of important things Volkswagen Lee’s Summit can help you do to get your VW ready for the winter.

Multi-point Winter Vehicle Inspection

One of the most important things you can do to prepare for winter is to have your vehicle fully inspected. As far as winter car care goes, here’s what you need to have done each year:

  • Battery testing and inspection
  • Brake inspection
  • HVAC inspection
  • Windshield inspection
  • Tire inspection

Having your Volkswagen inspected makes it easy to spot problems before they cause you trouble during the winter. In addition to having all this stuff inspected to prepare for winter, you should make sure you’re having your VW inspected before summer as well.

Ensure Your Volkswagen’s Automotive Fluids Are Topped Off

The fluids in your vehicle make all the different features in your vehicle work, including things like your windshield wipers, brakes, and transmission. One of the things you should do to prepare your car for winter is to have a mechanic check on your fluid levels, particularly your antifreeze and washer fluid. It’s best to change your washer fluid to a winter blend during the winter to help winterize your car. If any of your fluid levels are low, you should have them topped up or flushed and replaced before winter.

Check the Performance of Your HVAC System

You need to heat your car during the winter, especially with as cold as it can get in Missouri. With winter around the corner, now is a perfect time to take your Volkswagen to a dealership to have the heating system checked out. If there’s no heat coming out when you turn your heaters on, it could be that you’ve got a clogged air filter or a leak in your HVAC system. Volkswagen Lee’s Summit can inspect your HVAC system and make any necessary repairs before you’re stuck without heat in the middle of the winter.

Other Things to Do

In addition to all these things, there are some things you need to do to prepare your vehicle for winter. Here’s what Volkswagen Lee’s Summit will do to get your vehicle ready for winter:

  • Make sure the coolant and antifreeze is good
  • Have your windshield checked for cracks and chips
  • Replace your wiper blades
  • Get a roadside safety kit ready
