As much as we’d like to deny it, the white stuff is starting to fall from the sky, and it looks like it might be time for it to stay. With the recent cold temperatures and snow fall, it has probably occurred to you that winter is coming and that you might need to get your vehicle ready, if you already haven’t. The service center at County Line Nissan, located at 2191 Straits Turnpike in Middlebury, CT, has some basic maintenance and tips to help ensure that you have a safe and successful winter season on the roads.

Getting You Ready for the Snow and Cold

The last thing you want to do is get caught unaware when winter really gets into full-swing. You can avoid that uncomfortable, and possibly unsafe incident, with a quick trip to the service center at County Line Nissan. With just a few simple items of maintenance, you and your vehicle can be prepared for the coming winter months. For example, one of the first things you are going to want to do is have us inspect your battery. Your battery literally keeps your car going and you don’t want it to quit on you, while the weather is cold, and have it leave you stranded. If your battery doesn’t pass, we can replace it for you. We can also inspect your brakes and make sure they are all set to go for another season. The conditions and the road salt play havoc with your brakes, so it is a good idea to make sure they are ready to handle the rigors of winter. Our service center can also check your windshield wipers and all your fluids.

In addition, our service center will want to examine your tires to make sure you have the proper tread depth. Winter is a time for maximum traction. If you don’t have winter tires, our parts department can sell you some and the service center will mount and balance them for you. Winter tires are a good idea because they are made specifically for the snowy and icy roads we encounter.
