With summer finally gone and fall taking over, residents of St. Cloud, MN are starting to feel the same old chill we’re used to. Whether you own a new or used Toyota car, it’s important to get your vehicle prepared for winter before it arrives, which is why our service technicians here at St. Cloud Toyota are more than ready to handle any type of maintenance your vehicle needs. We want to take a minute to educate you on the importance of winterizing your vehicle so you’re fully-informed before you visit our service center.
Our winterization procedures start as simple maintenance checks. We begin by making sure your oil is fresh, your filters are in good shape, your fluids are filled, and your brakes work properly. After all, if the engine of your 2020 Toyota Camry isn’t working at peak performance, it won’t be able to adequately handle the cold. That’s why we make sure all of your vehicle’s internal components are performing like they should, so we can catch minor issues before they become major problems.
From there, we look at your tires. If you’re currently using all-season or summer tires, you might want to consider upgrading to winter tires, which are better-equipped to handle snow, ice, and slush. These tires are specifically designed to stay soft in sub-degree temperatures, and they also have deeper treads that can easily grip the road and maintain traction on snow, ice, and other wintry road conditions.
When you’re ready to get your vehicle ready for winter, come into our Waite Park, MN Toyota dealership. Our certified mechanics will make sure your vehicle can handle anything thrown its way. We hope to see you soon!
