Prepare Your Toyota for Winter in Santa Cruz, CA

Preparing Your Toyota for the Winter Season in Santa Cruz, CA

When you go outside in the cold, you usually put on a jacket and maybe a hat and mittens, if it’s quite chilly. This is because you want to be prepared for the cold instead of dealing with the problems the cold brings after you get cold. The same principle applies to your car, in that you want to prepare it for the winter before the cold weather brings it problems. At Santa Cruz Toyota, we provide all the services you need to prepare your car for the winter.



Our Top Ten Services for Getting Ready for Winter

  • Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze: The blend of coolant and antifreeze in your car should be at recommended levels so that the antifreeze can keep the car’s cooling system from freezing over and preventing engine cooling.
  • Change Washer Fluid: Windshield washer fluid can have freezing problems if it’s not a winter blend.
  • Battery Testing: We’ll check to ensure your battery can last through the winter and not leave you stranded somewhere in the cold.
  • Check Wiper Blades: Your windshield wiper blades are vital to keeping winter’s precipitation out of your visibility, so we assess their capacity to continue in that function.
  • Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection: Your windshield’s cracks and chips can worsen throughout the winter, so it’s best to take care of them before they become a problem.
  • Tire Inspection: Along with checking your tire’s treads and pressure, we can also switch your tires to snow tires by request.
  • HVAC Inspection: You want to stay warm during the cold months, so we’ll check your heater, defrost, steering wheel warmers, and seat warmers to ensure they’re functioning properly.
  • Brake Inspection: Brakes are vital to maintaining control over your car, so we assess them for anything you’ll want to take care of before driving in the icy weather.
  • Battery Inspection: External problems can prevent your battery from functioning properly, which is why our experts check your battery and its connections for any of those issues.
  • Roadside Safety Kit: Our friendly staff can help you get an idea of what to put in your roadside safety kit so that you’re prepared for the worst.
