Why is Preparing Your Vehicle For Winter Important?

Have you ever noticed that when the temperature drops severely your car struggles to keep a good grip on the road, even when there is no ice? That is because in frigid temperatures the rubber in your tires tenses up and hardens, reducing their ability to get a good grip on road surfaces. Winter tires help prevent this due to a compound used in their production. Changing out your vehicle’s tires to fresh winter tires is just one step in our winterization process.

Additionally, we will change out your vehicle’s windshield wipers with a fresh pair so that your view of the road is always clear of salt, ice, and snow. We can even equip your vehicle with winter-specific wipers to give you the best window-clearing power.

The last and most important step in winterizing your vehicle is a full vehicle inspection. Keeping your fluids at the proper levels and ensuring everything is sealed properly is critical to helping your vehicle make it through harsh winters. When you make an appointment at St. Cloud Toyota, we will give your vehicle a full winter inspection and get all of the preparation done that you need to get through the tough winter ahead.
