Let's Get Your Vehicle Ready For Winter!

A car in the snow should have had a winter service

When it comes to getting prepared for Winter, there is no such thing as “too early”

The days are getting shorter and there’s a definite chill in the air. Which can only mean one thing… Winter is coming! If you’re in Northern Ontario, and rely on and care about your vehicle, this is your nudge to start planning your seasonal service.

At Preferred Auto & Fleet Service, we are the reliable auto repair facility you need to ensure that when the first snow flies, you, your family and your vehicle will all be safe.

First Steps To Take To Ensure You Are Winter ready

Book in a Winter Inspection

As the temperature drops, that’s when problems reveal themselves. To ensure that you’re not stung by any nasty surprises that leave you stranded in the snow, you need to ensure you get the following things checked out ASAP

  • A brake fluid & brake system inspection
  • An inspection of your lights
  • An oil change
  • A coolant inspection to ensure optimal heat
  • A steering and suspension check
  • A maintenance interval check
  • All your vehicle belts visually inspected Ex timing chains/belts
  • Plus an all vehicle fluid check INCLUDING your Winter washer fluid topped up!

The team at Preferred Auto & Fleet Service are experienced and skillful when it comes to inspecting vehicles for a northern winter - we live here too! We can book you in for an all-over vehicle inspection today so that any and all repairs needed can be done in plenty of time. You will receive all of our recommended repairs and servicing a user-friendly digital report highlighting Red, Orange and Green statuses on your vehicle's mechanical components. This digital report can be text messaged straight to your phone so you have our recommendations in the palm of your hand and so you can easily plan for current and future repairs and maintenance for your vehicle. This digital inspection is also available to be sent via e-mail as well!

Next, Protect your vehicle from Rust

After the completion of your service and any repairs, now is the time to get your vehicle cleaned and detailed for winter so that you can get your undercoating done before the first snow falls. Rust is a serious issue for vehicles in winter. The damage caused can ruin body panels and compromise the strength and rigidity of your vehicle’s frame. You can prevent this by ensuring that you have adequate undercoating done in advance.

You can arrange to have vehicle undercoating done at your nearest Car Detailing Service.
