Winterize Your Subaru in Columbus

January 2nd, 2018 by

Winter isn’t just scratching at our door here in Columbus; it’s rapping on it hard with snow and miserable subzero temperatures. That means now is a good time to bundle up and make sure your new Subaru has all the care it needs to make it through winter. Slippery road conditions and frigid temperatures supply a variety of challenges for you and your vehicle, but with a little winter maintenance here at Byers Airport Subaru, you can be prepared for just about anything the weather decides to throw at you.

Here are a few tips to help you and your Subaru make it safely to spring:

1.) Battery

A weak car battery in warm weather can sometimes find the strength to carry on, but cold weather will surely sap whatever strength it has left. This can leave you stuck in your driveway or stranded on the roadside in the cold until help arrives. Inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst, this situation can put a damper on your day. We can help you avoid this issue by performing a simple voltage test on your battery to make sure it can weather cold temperatures. If we find it wanting, we can replace it for you.

2.) Fluids

Your vehicle needs its various fluids checked to make sure it has everything it needs to operate smoothly, particularly in cold weather. From changing your oil to topping off necessary reservoirs such as your windshield washer fluid, we can make sure your Subaru’s fluids are primed to get you through winter without a hitch.

3.) Tires

The first step to tire success in winter is making sure your tires have enough tread. Next, you should make sure they’re the right type. Winter tires have a special rubber compound and unique tread designed to work better in cold, snowy weather. If you haven’t made the switch yet, we can help you find the right winter tires for your Subaru here at our dealership.
