Why is Toyota Maintenance Important?

As the seasons change, your vehicle needs a tune-up to ensure your tire tread is even, your oil is fresh and your fluids are topped off. Toyota maintenance involves oil change service, tire rotations and fluid checks. However, we also help you learn how to prepare your car for winter. Our team will perform a thorough inspection of all working components of your vehicle, including your car battery, your windshield wiper blades and your tire pressure to ensure your SUV, pickup truck or sedan is ready for winter driving.

During Toyota maintenance, you can also count on the team at our Toyota dealership in Monroeville, PA, to inspect the condition of your tires. We may recommend winter tires, all-season tires or snow tires if it’s time to replace your wheels. We also inspect how your front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is performing so you can drive during the winter months with peace of mind.

Toyota Winter Car Care Tips

Cold temperatures during the winter season often bring reminders to prepare for cold weather and checking in on your car at our Toyota dealer in Monroeville, PA, is one of the most important reminders. Our technicians will perform thorough winter Toyota maintenance but in between service visits, we recommend the following winter car care tips.

  • Top off Fluids: As ice and snow impact your visibility, make sure your washer fluid is full. It’s also important to check the coolant levels, too, so your vehicle doesn’t overheat.
  • Check the Battery: A dead battery during the winter season can pose many risks. Consider the age of your battery and check for corrosion around the terminals. If you notice your vehicle is slow to start, contact us for Toyota maintenance to determine if you need a battery replacement.
  • Pack an Emergency Kit: Be prepared for long waits on the highway with a survival kit within your Toyota vehicle. Our technicians recommend adding a flashlight, first-aid materials, blankets, water and non-perishable snacks to help you battle winter conditions if you are stuck on the road.
  • Inspect the Lights: Having unobstructed visibility is essential when driving in the winter. Inspect the strengths of your headlights and taillights and replace bulbs as needed before the cold temperatures arrive.
  • Replace Windshield Wipers: If it’s been awhile since you’ve replaced your windshield wipers, now is the time to ensure you have enhanced visibility when it rains or snows.
