Get Your Car Ready for Winter at Joe Morgan Honda

November 21st, 2018 by

Winter is nipping at our heels here in Monroe, OH. While we still have a few weeks until it’s officially winter on the calendar, we’ve already seen the frigid signs of winter’s imminent arrival. While winter is a source of excitement for some and a wellspring of dread for others, one thing is common among all drivers this time of year: your car needs winter service to help it get through to spring.

Fortunately, we’ve seen many a brutal winter here at our Honda dealership near Dayton, which means that we have plenty of experience when it comes to winterizing your car.

Here are a few of our top tips for preparing your Honda vehicle for the coming winter:

Winter Tires
Why do winter tires make a difference? This type of tire stands out for two primary reasons: rubber compound and tread. Winter tires are better at finding traction on wintry Mason, OH roads because their special rubber compound is more flexible in cold weather than all-season or summer tires. They also boast deep, wide tread patterns that are more effective at driving on snow and slush.

Frigid temperatures make it more difficult for your battery to work properly, which can leave you stuck in the cold in a car that won’t start. We can run a voltage test and clean up your battery to make sure it has enough strength to get you through winter — or replace it if we find it wanting.

Wiper Blades and Washer Fluid
The worst time to realize that your windshield wipers don’t work properly or that you’re out of washer fluid is when you’re on the road near Middleton, OH and winter decides to coat your windshield with something gross every ten seconds. Prepare your car for winter by inspecting your wiper blades and replacing them if needed and making sure your car’s washer fluid reserve is always full.
