Winter Tires

When preparing your Subaru for winter, the best place to start is with your tires. With sleet, ice, and freezing temperatures, you want to make sure that you are maximizing your traction. If you are planning on driving during winter, there's no substitute for winter or snow tires. Winter tires come with special snow-shedding grove patterns and siping to grip the ice.

All-season and summer tires become rigid in colder temperatures, making for a loss of traction even on dry pavement. Winter tires are composed of a special freezing resistant rubber that allows them to maintain their suppleness in cold weather. With winter tires equipped, you will be prepared for the worst that winter has to offer.

If you already have winter tires, it's worth having them inspected to ensure that they are in good enough condition for this winter. Our service team can check tread depth to make sure that you the grip needed. We can also rotate, balance, and align your tires to increase your tires' longevity and handling.

Battery Service

Colder temperatures put a greater strain on your battery, and the last thing you want is your battery dying on you in winter. Getting stranded because your battery won’t start can be not only inconvenient but dangerous. Luckily, we offer cold weather batteries that can withstand any cold snap. If you're noticing that your vehicle is having trouble turning over or lights are dim, it may be time for a replacement or battery service.

Our service team can clean connections, replace components, and test your battery to make sure that your vehicle will start up every time.

Brake Service

When slippery conditions are involved, you want to make sure that you have access to your vehicle's maximum stopping capabilities. Our service center can check your vehicle's brake pads, calipers, and rotors to ensure that your brakes are performing at their best. If you are experiencing screeching or stuttering when you brake, be sure to bring in your vehicle as soon as possible.

Heating and Defrosting Components

Your heating components not only keep you comfortable but are essential for your visibility and safety. Our service team can check your heating and defrosting components to ensure that you can keep the ice off your windows and stay warm if you are stuck in a snow storm.

How You Can Prepare

While our expert staff can take care of just about any of your winter preparation needs, there are some steps that you can take. Be sure to check your fluids regularly to ensure that don't run out. Even something seemingly small, like wiper fluid, can make all the difference for your visibility and safety on the road.

We also recommend that you check to ensure you have plenty of gas to get where you're going and back while planning for possible scenarios where you would use extra. You can pack an emergency bag with things like a first aid kit, extra winter clothes, and a flashlight in case you get stranded in a snow storm.
