Here comes old man winter is your car ready, our technicians at Sundance Automotive in Lakewood suggest following these 4 important winter automotive maintenance tips so your car can handle the driving conditions and you can stay safe no matter how bad the weather.
It’s a really cold night. You put the key in the ignition and your car doesn’t start. Now, that’s a nightmare. Don’t let that happen and wait until you’re stranded! The moment your car takes longer to turn over than usual, come in for an inspection of your battery, starter, and alternator. You should get a new battery every five to seven years. If it’s been that long or you aren’t getting the battery performance you need, let us install a new battery. It will save you trouble on a very cold night.
Really, is there anything more important than brakes in the snow and ice? It’s hard enough to stop when it’s icy, but without good brakes, it could be disastrous. If your brakes squeal or you notice it takes longer to stop, come on in for service today. We can check your brakes and make sure they will work when you need them. If you need new brake pads or rotors we can take care of it for you.
Don’t forget to check to make sure your car or truck has the proper alignment. You need to have complete control of your vehicle, particularly on those icy winter roads. Have you noticed uneven tire wear on your tire treads? Do you feel your steering wheel shimmy when you are driving at higher speeds? Does your car drift to one side? Come in today for a computerized wheel alignment and system check before you have to drive those treacherous Colorado winter highways.
When the rain, snow, and ice comes, you need to have good wiper blades. There’s nothing more frightening than to be blinded by the slush from another car thrown up on your windshield and your wipers can’t clear it off with your old, ineffective wiper blades. Get new wipers now, so when you need them, they can clean your windshield. We can install new wiper blades for your car, truck or SUV today, so when the winter precipitation comes, you have nothing to worry about.
