Although seasonal auto maintenance is a wise choice all year round, fall is the best time to get your Toyota prepared for the bitter winter months to come. Not only can you beat the pre-winter rush, but if cold weather sets in unexpectedly early this year, you’ll be ready for it. Don’t trust the job to just any auto mechanic, though. If you’re in New York, Levittown, Hempstead, Huntington, or anywhere else in the Westbury, NY area, Westbury Toyota has you covered with essential services like the following.
The last thing you want to be dealing with in the dead of winter is a ventilation system that isn’t working correctly. Not only will it be tougher to stay warm, but a foggy windshield is a significant safety risk you’ll want to avoid. A thorough HVAC inspection ensures your heater, defrost system, wheel warmers, seat warmers, and more are in tip-top condition.
Tires that are properly inflated, evenly worn, and in excellent condition are always important, but they’re extra-important once slick roads and chilly conditions become issues. A comprehensive tire inspection guarantees you’ll enjoy safe, smooth driving experiences all fall and winter long. Have your tire pressure, tread, and more checked. Get your tires balanced and rotated if necessary, as well.
Every smart driver should have their battery checked before the colder months set in. Your mechanic will examine it for signs of corrosion or damage. He’ll also test it to make sure it’s fully charged and communicating correctly with your engine when in use. If anything’s not right, you’ll have a new battery installed in no time.
Wiper blades that are in prime working condition are another cold-weather must, so have your mechanic take a look at yours. The function of your wipers will be checked and replaced if deemed necessary.
Although fall inspections are relatively common requests most mechanic shops will be happy to take care of, you don’t want to trust your ride to just anyone. Taking your car to a dealership that specializes in servicing Toyota vehicles is the best way to guarantee the service quality you deserve. If you’re in Westbury, NY or anywhere nearby, we of Westbury Toyota will take impeccable care of you and your vehicle.
