Taking care of some simple services can help your car perform better when winter arrives near Waterford and West Bloomfield.

Suburban Ford of Waterford offers a variety of services to help prepare local vehicles for the rigors of winter driving. Each of these services and more aim to help make winter driving as safe and confident as possible.

  • Tire Check or Change: Bald tires or low tire pressure can each produce dangerous driving conditions throughout winter. Having your tires checked can make sure they're in good shape for snow and ice. Or, if you're running on summer tires, change over to a winter set that can more easily handle the elements.
  • Battery Test: Extreme temperatures can dramatically decrease the lifespan of a car/truck battery. You may want to have your battery tested before winter weather shows up. If the battery is running low, now is a good time to switch to a new one. Doing so can help you avoid getting stranded in the cold.
  • Fluids and Filters: You'll want to top off fluids like antifreeze and wiper fluids to make sure you can handle winter weather as it arrives. We recommend a seasonal oil change as well. Many local drivers near Commerce Township and Pontiac even go as far as to replace cabin air and engine filters.
  • Wash and Wax: Knock off the dirt and dust of summer before winter arrives. You can then apply wax to help your car's paint shine and protect it from the often-corrosive debris that arrives with snow and ice.

Contact our staff today to schedule your winter prep appointment. Our technicians will do what it takes to get your vehicle ready for ice, snow, and freezing temperatures.
