With winter quickly approaching, we here at Kokomo Toyota encourage you to give us a call to set up an appointment at our service center for some pre-winter routine maintenance. The purpose of this service is to make sure that your vehicle is going to perform safely on the wintry roads and that you'll be protecting your investment. The winter can do a number on an automobile, and there are some maintenance tasks that we recommend you have taken care of this time of year.

Checking Antifreeze Levels

A fluid that runs through your radiator, adequate levels of antifreeze are necessary for winter driving. A mixture of 50/50 antifreeze and water should be added to your vehicle if your levels are low. If you neglect to top off this fluid reservoir, you could end up with severe engine damage that would be very costly to repair.

Tire Inspections

The quality of tire you have on your vehicle will determine the amount of traction you're going to have on the road. If we find that you don't have a lot of tread left or have uneven tread wear, we'll encourage you to invest in a new set before the snow flies. If you're using a winter set of tires, we encourage you to have them placed on your vehicle right now.

Winter Wiper Blades

There's a big difference between windshield wiper blades that are designed for summer use and winter use. With so many different forms of precipitation coming down throughout this unpredictable season, a winter set is a necessity.

If you have any questions regarding routine service before the arrival of winter, contact us here at Kokomo Toyota to schedule an appointment or speak to one of our service technicians.
