Winter Service Tips

Successful winter driving and uneventful holiday travel around Fort Riley begin with proper winter service. Here are a few helpful service tips:

  • Battery: Frigid temperatures can easily turn a weak battery into a dead one and leave you stranded in the cold, so we recommend scheduling a battery check to make sure yours is strong enough to get you where you need to go.
  • Antifreeze: Make sure your car has plentiful antifreeze this winter to avoid engine trouble.
  • Brakes: With snow and ice on the roads, stopping is difficult enough without adding faulty brakes to the mix. Be sure to bring your car in for brake service to make sure you have the stopping power you need.
  • Tires: Check your tires to make sure they have adequate tread and air pressure.
  • Oil: Regular oil changes are important parts of your vehicle's performance and overall well-being.
  • Lights: Check your headlights and taillights to make sure they're all nice and bright.
  • Wipers: Visibility is crucial, especially in winter. Check your windshield wipers to make sure they don't streak and that they're not damaged.
