Winter Maintenance Tips in Sioux Falls

As a Mitsubishi owner in Sioux Falls, you should prepare your vehicle for the rigors of winter. The temperatures will soon be dropping, and cold temperatures are hard on vehicles. Cold temperatures and winter storms make for rough driving conditions, but if you winterize your car now, it could save you from many inconveniences later on in the winter. At Vern Eide Mitsubishi, we want to encourage our customers in Sioux Falls to be prepared this winter. Below are some of the most important things to focus on when winterizing your vehicle.

Get Your Car Ready for the Winter

  • Battery:You should bring your vehicle to us at Vern Eide Mitsubishi so that we can test and inspect your battery. A battery that’s in bad shape might not be able to start your car in cold temperatures. We can test how strong the charge is on your vehicle’s battery and check for corrosion buildup or a weak cable connection. Once you have us inspect your battery, you’ll enjoy confidence in knowing that your battery should be dependable all winter long.
  • Tires: Winter storms can make roadway surfaces slick. Good tires are essential for staying safe in such conditions. It might even be a good idea to switch over to snow tires in the winter months since Sioux Falls can occasionally get some snow.
  • Brakes: A brake inspection is essential for safety when preparing for the winter. We’ll inspect your brakes and check brake fluid levels. If necessary, we’ll also install some new OEM Mitsubishi brake pads and make sure you have a safe driving experience.
  • Wiper Blades and Washer Fluid: Wiper blades need to be in good condition so they provide good visibility in winter storms. If there is rubber peeling or leaving streaks, you will want to make sure they are replaced to clear off the windshield. Also, replacing old washer fluid with specially formulated winter weather washer fluid is important to make sure it doesn’t freeze and can help de-ice.
  • Engine coolant: Frozen coolant creates big problems. As part of winter car care at Vern Eide Mitsubishi, we’ll ensure you have enough antifreeze in your coolant tank to make it a stress-free winter.
  • Heating system: Bring your vehicle to us if you’re concerned that the heating system is not functioning well. You’re going to need your heating system to work properly to defrost your windshield and windows this winter. We’ll inspect all your heating system components, including your defrosters, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmer.
  • Windshield: When the weather is cold and wet, cracks in a vehicle windshield can expand. That’s why Mitsubishi owners shouldn’t procrastinate about getting their windshield repaired with winter just around the corner.
  • Roadside Safety Kit: It’s best to prepare for winter breakdowns by packing a roadside safety kit with a few key emergency supplies. Our certified technician can give you a complete list of items you may want to invest in.
