Winter Weather Prep

Prepare Your Jaguar for Winter with Recommended Maintenance

Winter is no joke here in Michigan. Extreme temperatures, icy roads, and snow throughout can cause challengers for drivers from Birmingham to Royal Oak. While you it's hard to eliminate the risks of winter driving completely, but there are several things that Jaguar owners can do to make sure they're as prepared as possible. These routine services can help get your car ready for the various challenges of cold-weather driving. If you think it's time to address any of these services for your Jaguar, give us a call to schedule an appointment.

Antifreeze/Coolant

To the surprise of some drivers, coolant and antifreeze are one and the same. The fluid works to regulate engine temperatures, whether it's cold or hot outside. As we get closer to freezing temperatures, it's important to make sure that your car has enough antifreeze. Your technician near Bloomfield can check antifreeze levels and top it off if needed.

Tires

Not all tires are well-suited for winter driving conditions. We recommend that all Jaguar owners in the area have their tires inspected thoroughly for wear and proper tread depth before the weather gets icy. If needed, we can help you get a fresh set installed that's ready to take on the snow.

Sometimes, the tire type itself is ill-suited for winter weather. Some new Jaguar models come equipped with summer sport tires that perform admirably in warm, dry conditions, but tend to struggle in sub-freezing temperatures. In this case, we recommend purchasing and installing a set of winter tires. These tires are specially designed with rubber compounds and tread patterns that can maintain grip in winter conditions.

Wiper Blades and Fluid

Winter storms can reduce visibility greatly, so you'll want to make sure that your windshield can remain clear. Installing fresh wiper blades before winter a smart move that can pay off during the next instance of snow or rain. It's also a good idea to fill up your wiper fluid before the next cold snap.

Battery

Freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on car batteries. There's nothing worse than ending up stranded when it's below freezing outside, so have your battery checked and make sure that it's ready to go. If needed, we recommend installing that new car battery -- it can prevent major headaches down the road.
