As the winter weather slowly creeps in, it’s no secret that now is a good time to make sure that your vehicle is ready to handle the Wisconsin winter. Of course, we make no bones about it: it can get brutally cold. 

Is your car ready for the cold weather? RPM Automotive, your auto repair service in Prairie du Chien, WI provides you with these 3 tips for cold weather and winter driving. Also, the holidays are fast approaching and there will be many cars on the road. So it would be smart of you to make sure that your vehicle is prepared for those heavy traffic days.

Let’s dive right into these tips so you are prepared:

1. Check your heater

Your heater is going to be your best friend this winter. So it’s important to make sure that your heater is in working order. It starts with checking it out yourself. 

Turn on your heater at full blast and make sure the warm air is blowing properly. If there is no warm air, then you’ll need to get it repaired ASAP. RPM Automotive is your car heater repair near McGregor, IA that will fix it in the same day.

Our high-quality parts that we use to repair and replace come with a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty. It’s one of the best in the business, so how can you say no to that. We are confident that once your heater is fixed, you and your passengers will be more comfortable while you all travel to Grandma’s House and back. 

2. Have your snow brush handy

You will wake up one of these mornings and see your car covered with all kinds of snow. Your snow brush should be inside your vehicle or someplace where you know where it is. Just scrape off the snow and ice and you’ll be good to go.

By the way, you don’t want to miss the snow on top of the roof. That can ice over, come off your roof, and hit the windshield of the driver behind you. And that can spell lots of trouble for you (especially in the form of a liability suit). 

3. Make sure your vehicle is inspected

Your vehicle should be inspected once or twice a year. This will help you keep any potential vehicle issues at bay. Our ASE-certified mechanics will inspect your vehicle and fix the issue on the spot. 

While your vehicle is being serviced, we’ll provide you with one of our pre-inspected loaners so you can get to work or run errands. If you need a ride from the shop to work or home, we’ve got you covered. It’s what we do as a locally owned shop that serves our customers near Bloomington, WI.
