GMC Winter Care Tips

<

With the harsh winter approaching, the certified technicians at our GMC service center serving Delphos wants to make sure that you and your vehicle are prepared so you don’t find out that your car wasn’t maintained well enough when it’s already too late. Take a few of the tips and tricks from our certified techs so you can tackle the winter roads confidently.

Check Your Battery

We’ve all been there--going out to your car in the morning on your way to work on a frigid morning, you turn the key, and nothing happens. Car batteries are particularly vulnerable in the winter because cold temperatures reduce battery capacity, so if you have an older battery, take it to our service center to have a technician take a look at it and consider replacing it to avoid having to get your car towed in the middle of a snowstorm.

Pay Attention To Your Tires

Bad tires are the culprit of many winter accidents, and making sure they’re up to par before you take on winter roads is one of the first things you should be doing. Check the recommended tire pressure in your owner’s manual and ensure that your tires are filled to those specifications--properly inflated tires will help you maintain good fuel economy and a comfortable drive, and more importantly, will grip the roads tighter than underinflated or overinflated tires.

Delphos area drivers can check out our GMC service specials, ranging from oil changes and full inspections to wild card savings and filter changes. It’s a great way to get major savings on your preliminary winter maintenance.

Check Your HVAC System

The HVAC system not only is what keeps your car warm during the winter, but it also powers the defroster and is a huge part of creating maximum visibility for winter mornings. Make sure it’s functioning 100% properly and get anything wrong fixed before it’s too late.

Top Off Fluids

Brake fluid, coolant, and oil should all be replaced before the real cold months get here. Additionally, it’s a good idea to never let your gas tank fall below half-full, since this allows condensation to build in your tank and freeze.
