Winter can be a brutal season for vehicles, particularly here in Chicago. Snow, ice, slush, salt, and even hail all mix together to truly put your vehicle to the test. That is why it is so important to make sure that your vehicle is prepared for the snowy months ahead by getting it serviced and winterized.

This process is actually relatively simple, though it may sound extensive. All you need to do is make sure you have completed a few simple services. Before you know it, you will be on the road with your vehicle handling the snow and ice with confidence.

So what services should you consider getting?

  • If you haven’t gotten your snow tires yet, now is the time. Additionally, you can ask our service team to check your alignment or even rotate your tires, should you need us to.

  • Make sure to have your coolants checked!

  • Replace your windshield wipers with sturdier ones that are designed to handle ice and snow. It will make a world of difference!

  • If you haven’t had your oil changed recently, now may be the time to do it! Plus, you can ask about other types of oil that are better suited for the cold winter months.

These are just a few of the steps you can take in order to winterize your vehicle! If you have any questions about doing so, you are always welcome to visit us at Fox Ford Lincoln, located in Chicago, IL. You can even schedule a time to bring your vehicle in thanks to our online service scheduler.
