Preparing Your Ford Vehicle for Winter in Lansing, MI
Fords are a hearty type of vehicle, and there’s not much that can prevent them from running the way they should if they’re maintained properly. However, the winter weather provides a challenge that can only be solved by preparing your car for the cold, and at our service center at LaFontaine Ford of Lansing, we want to help you prepare your Ford for the cold weather. We’ll help you get all of the services that will get your car ready for winter, and we’ll help you with the inspections you need to ensure everything is working properly.
Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection: Windshields can crack or chip when impacted by small rocks and other debris, so it’s best to get those taken care of before the cold weather comes.
HVAC Inspection: Getting your HVAC systems inspected ensures that you will stay warm during the winter, especially when we check your heater, defrost, steering wheel warmers, and seat warmers.
Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze: In order to regulate temperature appropriately, your engine needs the right levels of coolant and antifreeze.
Check Wiper Blades: Windshield wiper blades have a tendency to break or degrade, so you want yours working at full capacity in the winter weather.
Change Washer Fluid to Winter Blend: Non-winter blends can freeze when you use them on your cold windshield, and that doesn’t help with the dirtiness or your visibility.
Brake Inspection: Brakes are key to your control of your vehicle, especially in ice and snow.
Battery Inspection: Knowing that your battery is working properly can give you peace of mind about your startups and electrical systems.
Battery Testing: It’s best to test your battery and find out whether or not it should be replaced before it gives out.
Tire Inspection: We can give your tire tread and pressure a look as well as provide snow tires should you need them.
Roadside Safety Kit: It’s best to put together a roadside emergency kit so that you’re fully prepared for the worst in the winter weather.
