Winter is just lurking over the horizon, and that brings with it a new set of seasonal challenges for your vehicle to overcome. Fortunately, you can be ready for a rough winter in Princeton by taking care of some preemptive winter maintenance. Here is what we recommend.
Take care of your treads.
Healthy tires are absolutely essential any time of the year, but with the potential for slicker roads, they’re even more crucial in the winter. When the temps start falling in Princeton, you’ll need to make it a habit of checking tire pressure regularly to ensure proper inflation.
If you haven’t had the tires balanced and rotated in a while, bring your ride into Pantili Mitsubishi and get it done. While you’re in, we’ll check to make sure that they have a healthy amount of tread — you can also check yourself using the penny test — and proper inflation. If you really want to protect your interests, we can tell you all about our available selection of winter tires, which provide better traction in cold weather.
Beef up your battery.
The nightmare scenario for many drivers is getting caught in the middle of a cold night or even a driving snowstorm with a dead battery. Being made to wait in a chilly car for a tow truck or a battery jump is not ideal, so get ahead of it now by having your battery tested at Pantili Mitsubishi. We’ll be able to tell you if your battery is supplying enough juice for your car. If it isn’t, we can get you a perfect replacement with the quickness.
As a general rule, if it’s been five years or so since the last time you had a new battery put in, you’re getting close to being due.
Whip out new wipers.
You’re going to see snowfall in Princeton this year, so you’ll be relying on your windshield wipers to give you a clear look at the road ahead. Getting stuck with streaky, ineffective wiper blades means less visibility, which isn’t just stressful but also unsafe.
Pantili Mitsubishi will happily set you up with a new set of blades and install them as part of your next visit, making sure that you’ve got a clear look at the road ahead. While we’re at it, we can make sure that you have the right mix of washer fluid to get you through those low-visibility days.
There’s much more that you can do to stay ahead of winter, and Pantili Mitsubishi is your place to get it done. Get a leg up on winter in Princeton by getting your maintenance and service needs addressed by the pros in our service center.
