The winters in Wisconsin can be rough due to plummeting temperatures and heavy snowfall. During the colder months, you must pay especially close attention to the well-being of your car. Here are some important tips from our team at Pischke Motors Nissan to help you take care of your vehicle this season.
Regular car washes
The roads are covered with snow and salt during the winter. Road salt can be incredibly corrosive to your vehicle, causing rust and other surface damage. Washing your car every few weeks will help prevent salt buildup and the breakdown of your car’s exterior paint. Plus, it will keep all of the dirt and grime off your car so it looks nicer.
Adjust tire pressure
If you haven’t noticed already, tire pressure changes during the winter months. This will sometimes prompt the tire pressure light to come on, but it’s important to check tire pressure any time the temperature changes significantly. Your tire pressure will likely drop as the temperature does. Check tire pressure regularly throughout the winter, and adjust it according to the owner’s manual. If you’re not sure how to check or adjust tire pressure, our service team at Pischke Nissan is happy to teach you.
Check your battery
Your car’s battery is much more likely to malfunction during the winter. The harsh, cold temperatures can be hard on the battery. If the battery gives out, you may find yourself stranded in the cold winter weather – a problem no one wants to have. Our service team at Pischke Nissan can check the battery’s health. If there are problems with the battery, we can replace it before it turns into a larger problem.
At Pischke Motors Nissan, our Maintenance Advantage Plan gives you complimentary service for oil changes, oil filters, car washes, tire rotations, and more with the purchase of a vehicle.
