From freezing temperatures that put stress on your battery to snowy roads that make tire traction difficult, we know how hard winter can be on your car. Stay ahead of the cold weather and get your Hyundai winter-ready with these tips.
Top off the cooling system
Coolant, or antifreeze, keeps your engine from freezing in cold temperatures. Make sure that your antifreeze levels are high and there are no leaks.
Improve your visibility
Wipe all of your interior window glass surfaces thoroughly using a clean lint-free cloth and glass cleaner. Make sure that your exterior lights are working properly.
Check your wipers
Add winter formula washer fluid to help maintain its function if sub-freezing conditions are to be expected. You may also need to replace your windshield wipers if it’s been longer than six months.
Inspect your tires
It’s always a good idea to check the tread and pressure of your tires. If you live where it snows, ice accumulates on the ground, or the temperature is regularly below 45 degrees, swap your summer or all-season tires for winter tires.
Test your battery
Winter can zap what's left of your battery after a hot summer. Get your battery checked and replaced if the charge is too weak to survive the colder temperatures.
Protect your engine
Just like your battery, colder weather can harm your engine. Change the oil and filter to maintain the proper operation of the engine during winter.
A little preparation and maintenance goes a long way. Let the trusted technicians at your local Hyundai dealer check and prepare your vehicle to handle whatever comes this winter. The last thing you want is to be left out in the cold. Schedule your appointment today.
