Recommended Winter Maintenance Services

  • Battery Testing: Winter maintenance should always include battery testing due to heat being the greatest battery performance threat and sub-zero temperatures causing sluggish engine starting. Replace your battery if the reserve capacity or cold-cranking amps are below factory standards.
  • Windshield Wiper Blades & Washer Fluid: Windshield wiper blades remove visual obstructions in the winter, such as snow, sleet, and wintery mix. Be sure to inspect the windshield wiper blades, replace them if needed, and install a winter blend washer fluid for optimum ice removal.
  • Brake Inspection: Winter maintenance should include a comprehensive brake system inspection involving components at all four wheels with brake pads measured.
  • HVAC Inspection: Checking the heating components before winter can save you from driving in uncomfortable, freezing conditions without adequate heating and defrosting.
  • Coolant Fluid/Antifreeze: Antifreeze is essential for preventing the engine from freezing, so be sure to check the fluid, top it off as needed to capacity, or get exchange service if at the recommended interval.
  • Tire Inspection: Tire integrity is essential in sub-zero temperatures and icy roads, so be sure to get a tire inspection. Certified tire inspections include a treadwear assessment, damage check, tread depth measurement, and air pressure adjustment.
  • Roadside Emergency Assistance Kit: Be ready for anything with a roadside emergency assistance kit. Contact us to order a genuine Toyota OEM kit from the accessories department.
