Winterizing Your Volkswagen in Glenview, IL

With winter making its way into our lives, it’s time to get your car ready for the new weather and precipitation patterns. This is called winterizing or winterization, and it’s a process that mainly involves checking various systems and making sure they’re up to the new challenges that come from the new and different weather. At Jennings Volkswagen, we want you to have the best experience driving in the winter, which is why we’ve put together a list of our most recommended services for winterizing your car.

Our Top Ten Services for Vehicle Winterization

  • Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection – The last thing you want is a crack or chip to be exacerbated by the freezing weather, which is why you want our experts to go over your windshield and fix any problems before it gets cold.
  • Check/Replace Coolant and Antifreeze – Antifreeze is the component of your coolant that keeps the coolant system from freezing, so it’s always good to make sure it’s fresh and ready to do its job.
  • HVAC Inspection – Especially during the very cold months, you use your HVAC systems more, so we’ll inspect them with a specific emphasis on the heater, defrost, steering wheel warmer, and seat warmers.
  • Change Washer Fluid – Windshield washer fluid needs to be appropriate for the season, which is why we have a winter blend tailored to the cold.
  • Check Windshield Wiper Blades – With the increase in precipitation, it’s always good to ensure your wiper blades are up to the job. We’ll make sure there aren’t any cracks, chips, or other problems preventing your wipers from doing their job.
  • Brake Inspection – Your brakes play a pivotal part in driving in icy weather, so it’s always a good idea to ensure they are in good shape before delving into that weather.
  • Battery Testing – Your battery controls startups, so you need to ensure it will last throughout the winter.
  • Battery Inspection – We’ll assess the state of your battery and make sure nothing external is interfering with its function.
  • Tire Inspection – Our experts will make sure your treads and pressure are appropriate for driving in winter weather, and we’ll help you switch to snow tires if you desire.
  • Prepare a Roadside Safety Kit – We’ll help you put together a list of things you should have in your car in case of a roadside emergency, keeping you and your loved ones safe.
