To help you avoid breaking down and running off the roads this holiday season, consider the following important winter service tips to help maintain your vehicle when you need it most.

Helpful Holiday Winter Service Tips

  • Oil Change - You must prioritize getting your oil changed, and oil filter replaced this winter season to ensure the lifeblood of your engine is healthy and uncorrupted.
  • Tire Rotation - Rotating your tires - or swapping your all-season tires out for winter tires - is the best way to combat the icy road conditions this upcoming season.
  • Engine Fluids Check - Make sure that you check all your engine fluids and top off any tanks or reservoirs that look low, including your motor oil, windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and coolant.
  • Pack Emergency Kit - To help you stay prepared, packing an emergency car kit is essential. We recommend including items like a small shovel, ice pick, extra warm clothes, bottled drinking water, non-perishable food, a lighter, flashlight, reflective roadside gear, and flairs.
  • Drive with Caution - The best way to take care of yourself and other drivers this holiday season is by driving slowly and proceeding with caution when the roads are covered in ice or blanketed with snow.
