The calendar might say that winter begins on December 21, but you know that it feels like it a lot earlier than that. You feel cold and chilly and you’re affected by the seasonal changes. Well, so is your car. At Russo’s Auto Service, we want to help you get your car ready for winter so that you can continue to rely upon it through the spring thaw. We understand how much you depend on your car every single day. If you’re good to it, then it will be good to you. Our Oak Park auto shop can help.

How are your tires? Let us take a look and examine them to make sure they have proper tread life left in them and that there are no cracks or other safety concerns. Strong tires are vital in the cold weather, snow, and ice. Do you have snow tires? It’s a very good idea to have them to give your car the edge in driving in difficult conditions. Ask our Oak Park auto shop about them. And of course, you can’t go anywhere at all if your car doesn’t start. Let us test your battery and your electrical system. Car batteries don’t last forever and if yours is due to be changed, you want to do that before you find yourself stranded some morning.

Another aspect of preparing your car for winter is letting our Oak Park auto shop check your coolant and if necessary, flush out your radiator and change the coolant. After all, we want to make certain that your car is prepared for even the coldest temperatures. Which reminds us, if it’s time for an oil change, it’s a good idea to do that before winter sets in too. We will also test your heating system because it’s no fun at all to drive without the warmth it provides to keep you protected from the outside world. Don’t delay. Call us right now and schedule an appointment. You’ll be glad you did.
