Prepare Your Car for Winter in Chicago, IL

Prepare Your Car for Winter in Chicago, IL

It is important to stay current with automotive maintenance, especially in Chicago, IL. With the various inclement weather conditions that we experience year-round, you want to make sure your vehicle is ready for anything that is thrown your way. That is why we at Car Credit Center are here to remind you to get your car serviced for the slippery pavement and frigid temperatures that we experience during the winter months! This way, you will be able to stay safe for miles to come.

Oil & Tires

For starters, it is important to make sure that your engine is operating in an optimal manner. That is why it is essential that you drop by a service center for your regularly scheduled oil change to make sure that the components beneath the hood are working cohesively rather than against one another. With the low temperatures that we experience, your powertrain has to work harder to warm up and perform effectively. That is why we suggest that you get that taken care of before the first blizzard of the year, so your system can perform all the way through next spring. We also are here to offer a friendly reminder to get your tires rotated so they can grip the road ahead. Or, if you are overdue, make sure to swap out your old components for a fresh set to make sure you aren’t slipping across the roadway.

Brakes & Battery

While your vehicle is lifted and is being assessed by service specialists, our team suggests that you have your brake pads looked at to make sure they haven’t eroded past their point of no return. Since snow, salt, and ice can take a toll on your tires’ traction, you will want to make sure that your brakes are prepared to bring you to a safe halt in the event of slippage. This way, you won’t have to worry about ending up in a collision or on the side of the road. After you get your oil changed, you should also have your go-to service department take a look at your battery. That is because the decrease in temperature can hinder your component’s ability to deliver that crucial spark when you turn your key in the ignition of your vehicle. So, a quick test to assess its condition is a good idea, and if required, opt to install a new one.

Tips & Tricks

Last, but certainly not least, getting these services taken care of won’t always keep you prepared for the inevitable. That is why we are here to give you some tips and tricks to make sure that you stay safe, since it is important to adjust your driving habits. For starters, make sure that you are extending your following distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Wet pavement requires extra stopping time, so making sure you have enough space can make the difference between enduring a collision and making it to work on time. In the event of an accident, make sure that you bring along a first aid kit, blankets, and a flashlight!

You can prepare your car for winter in Chicago, IL, with these few maintenance reminders from Car Credit Center. If you have any questions, be sure to contact us as soon as possible!

This was my first time buying a car and I was extremely nervous. After doing my research online for 2 months, I decided to go to Car Credit Center to browse used cars. On the first day I went, the team was extremely helpful and were not pushy sales people. They were understand and really took the time to make me feel welcomed. They helped me to find the two cars I liked. After, I went home, did some more research and went back to purchase they Hyundai I wanted. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommended anyone in the Chicagoland area looking for a used car to check our Car Credit Center.
