Here at Mountain West Auto, we want to add to your peace of mind. Our service team provides common winter services that get your tires, fluids, brakes, battery, and more ready for the worst the snow, ice, and cold weather can throw at you. Consider our list of tips down below and let us know when we can get you in for service - it's never too late to prepare for the winter months!

Common Winter Month Automotive Preparations

We offer numerous winter services that carefully inspect your vehicle and ensure it's ready for the winter months. If you have any questions about the services we offer, please let us know!

  • Check Your Vehicle's Battery: Cold weather can require your battery to work harder to power your lights and start your vehicle. To avoid this, ensure that you never leave your lights on or let your vehicle sit too long without starting it. We can check your battery's level and replace it, if necessary.
  • Check Engine Oil Level: Cold temperatures can affect your engine oil, making your vehicle's performance feel more sluggish. Schedule your oil change appointments as early as possible to avoid any issues starting your vehicle.
  • Get Snow Tires Installed: Snowy and icy roads can be slippery, compromising your all-season tires' ability to get good traction. Our team can install winter tires that provide better traction control for an easier drive.
  • Check Your Defroster and Heater: With colder temperatures come icy windshields that compromise your ability to see the road. Ensuring that your heater and defroster are in good working condition will help you see clearly and enjoy a warm interior.
  • Change Your Windshield Wipers and Fluid: Regular windshield wipers aren't rated to remove heavier precipitation from the windshield. To keep your windshield free of snow, dirt, and grime, our service professionals will provide you with winter wipers and ensure that your windshield wiper fluid is topped off.
  • Preparing for the colder months with winter service can be the difference between a safe drive home and being stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow. We encourage you to reach out to our service and parts professionals today! We'll schedule for winter service coverage and get you the winter-ready parts you need to enjoy a safe drive!
