It is easy to forget about your vehicle this time of year. You are busy thinking about getting those last minute Christmas gifts, planning the perfect New Year’s Eve party, and you simply forget about your vehicle. The auto mechanics at Airport Automotive in Colorado Springs is here to remind you to winterize your vehicle, and here is why.
During winter, your vehicle will work that much harder. Colder weather takes a toll on your car, and in Colorado Springs, mother nature doesn’t give your vehicle any breaks. The team at Airport Automotive recommends bringing your vehicle to our shop for an inspection. We will pay close attention to your owner’s manual, but we will also focus on components of your vehicle that you need the most for safe and secure winter driving.
For example, on those slippery, wet roads, you will need your brakes performing in tip-top shape. They need to handle the most dangerous of roads this time of year. Your tire pressure also needs to be at the right level. Everytime the temperature drops by ten degrees, the pressure also drops one or two pounds. We will keep this in mind when our technicians perform a thorough inspection.
Your windshield wipers will also be inspected. Your wipers may seem small, but they are your first line of defense against the elements. If need be, our technicians will inspect them to make sure they are ready to go. We will also examine your wiper-fluid reservoirs too. We will also make sure your heating system is performing properly too. You need to stay warm, even if the world outside is frosty.
Visit the technicians at Airport Automotive for a winter inspection. If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact us for an appointment. We are located at 6305 E. Platte Ave Suite 1,2, Colorado Springs, CO 80915.
