Quick Winter Inspection Checklist

Whether you're new to motoring around in the wintery mix that falls throughout the Menomonee Falls and Hartford area or are a seasoned veteran when it comes to foul-weather driving -- it's easy to forget vital winter check-ups as you go about your daily routine. Listed below are just a few things to run over before you hit the streets this winter in your well-loved vehicle!

  • Check Up on Your Vehicle's Oil Level
  • Make Sure Your Battery is Functioning Properly
  • Inspect the Wear and Tread of Your Tires
  • Replace Your Windshield Wipers to Increase Your Visibility
  • Fill Up on Antifreeze
  • Check on your Model's Radiator Cap and Thermostat
  • Ensure Engine Hoses are Fit Snugly and are Secure Without Any Leaks
