Winter Car Maintenance Checklist
Winter Car Maintenance Checklist in Etobicoke, ON
With winter now in full swing, we at Woodbine Nissan aim to help drivers based in the Etobicoke, ON area with a winter vehicle maintenance checklist for safe, reliable, and stress-free winter driving. Whether you drive a vehicle from our used or new inventory, find out how you can tend to your car throughout the winter season below, and contact our dealership to book an appointment for any service your car requires.
Installing winter tires is only the start of your winter vehicle maintenance checklist, as it's important to regularly check your tire pressure, since it can vary under extreme conditions. Your car battery's power is also vulnerable to winter weather and freezing temperatures, which is why we suggest hitting the road at least a few times a week for more than 10 km, as this will give your alternator enough time to properly recharge your battery. If you need to test your battery, our technicians will be glad to do just that and replace your battery if needed during your next appointment at our Service Centre. The arrival of winter is also a good time to change your oil and filter and have your spark plugs checked at Woodbine Nissan, which will ensure that your engine runs smoothly throughout the season. Visibility is key during rough winter days, and we recommend checking your windshield wipers' condition and your washer fluid levels. Lastly, don't forget to fit your car with the right size floor mats, as this will keep salt from staining your cabin and snow from pooling on your car floor.
