Here are some guidelines for keeping your VW ready for whatever winter can dish out. Bring your VW in today and our service specialists can help.

Check the antifreeze – Antifreeze and water are normally mixed at a 50/50 ratio. That typically puts your protection level at twenty degrees below zero.

Bolster the battery – If water levels are low, add distilled water to cover the lead plates inside your battery. Also make sure battery cables and terminals are clean and tight.

Measure the tires – Measure your tire tread and consider replacing your tires if they reach approximately 4/32″ of remaining tread depth, or switch to snow tires. Then check your tire pressure, which can be lowered by cold temperatures. Adjust as needed.

Check windshield wipers and fluid – If your wiper blades are more than six months old, replace them for winter. Make sure your wipers are free of frost, frozen rain or snow before turning them on. Use a washer solution that won’t freeze in winter temperatures, and be prepared to top it off often.

Change oil regularly – Be sure to stay up to date on oil changes throughout the winter.

Protect the paint – Give the exterior a coat of wax because cold, ice, snow and salt can be tough on paint. Wash your VW as often as possible during the winter, making sure to clean in the wheel wells and underneath to prevent buildup and damage.

Whether your vehicle is due for a routine oil change or needs repair work, you can count on the Speedcraft VW service team to get the job done right.

    Winter has adverse effects on the vehicles. The author has provided here with some tips which can serve as reminders of simple steps we should take to keep our vehicle ready for winter. We should use the right kind of oil in our vehicle and get the oil changed timely. We should check the tire pressure and inflate the tires properly as this is required to get the best possible traction wile driving on the snow. If we are living in a region of heavy snowfall, we have to switch to snow tires replacing the all season tires.
