Winter Car Care Tips & Vehicle Maintenance at Graff Durand

DURAND, Mich., –– Winter is in full effect, which means that if you haven’t thought about it already, it’s time to think about winter vehicle maintenance and car care. At Hank Graff Chevrolet in Durand, we understand that buying or leasing a vehicle is a big investment, so we want to help you extend the life of your vehicle through every season. Whether you have a car, truck, or SUV, during winter your vehicle can suffer from damaging factors like salt, freezing temps, and ice. It's not just your vehicle's performance that is impacted by cold weather and icy roads, but your personal safety as well. With the proper winter car care though, you have no need to worry! We have just launched a new service section on our website that is dedicated to our helpful winter car care tips and vehicle maintenance at Graff Chevrolet. With these simple tips your vehicle will run great through the winter season and beyond!

Winter Car Care Tips & Vehicle Maintenance at Graff Durand

On our Winter Car Care Page you’ll find winter vehicle maintenance tips on –
  • Tires: Tires are probably the most important vehicle component to keeping you safe on slushy and icy winter roads. Upgrading to winter tires will drastically improve your traction, but even just checking the wear of the treads and the tire pressure on your regular tires will help to keep you safe on the road. Click to learn more about winter tires.
  • Batteries: Freezing temperatures are rough on your vehicle’s battery life and slow the chemical reaction which creates the energy needed to start your vehicle. But do you know why you may want to replace your battery if it is any older than two to three years old? Click the link to learn about your car battery.
  • Brakes: Keeping up with brake maintenance throughout every season is important to ensure safety every time you hit the road, however brake maintenance during winter is even more important since your vehicle can require a longer distance to stop in winter weather.  You don't want to be the car that slides through a intersection or into a ditch! Read more about winter brake care by following the link.
  • Oil Changes: Routine oil changes extend the life of your engine and ensure your vehicle is ready to perform for years to come. During the winter, oil changes are even more important because extreme cold temperatures can have a negative effect on oil, making it less effective at keeping your engine components from overheating and warping. Click the link for a list of signs your vehicle needs an oil change.
  • Wiper Blades: A clear view of the road is crucial to safe winter driving. Your vehicle’s wiper blades work hard to remove precipitation from your windshield, and can become worn out, broken, and made ineffective by winter weather in particular. Follow the link to find out if your wiper blades need to be replaced.

Winter weather can make for treacherous driving conditions and it can take a toll on your vehicle. To make sure your vehicle is prepared to protect you through the coldest season of the year, visit our Graff Durand winter car care and vehicle maintenance pages for more information.
