5 Reasons Why You Should Winterize your Vehicle


At Ponder Auto Repair, we don’t just want to provide auto repair for you. We want to help you have the best relationship with your car that is possible. We want your car to last a long time and for you to truly enjoy the experience of driving it. With winter fast approaching, you’re going to want to take some time to winterize your vehicle. What is winterizing? Don’t worry--we can help. Here are a few reasons why winterizing your vehicle is so smart:

Save Money
Winterizing means maintenance and maintenance saves you money in the long term. Bringing your vehicle in for regular checkups and getting it ready for winter means that you can get ahead of major repairs you might need. Knowing what repairs are coming up means not being blindsided by a huge auto repair bill, which is a win for everyone! 

Shed Some Light On The Matter 
Winterizing will involve checking your lights. With darkness setting in earlier and staying with us longer, it is even more crucial that all lights on your car, especially the headlights and taillights, are operating at full brightness. Often, these lights dim long before they burn out entirely. 

Checking the Tires
Winterizing means you can take a look at your tires and decide whether they’re optimal for winter use. Your auto mechanic can help you determine if you should replace your tires, if they need realignment, or if they are worn down. Your tires are the shoes of your car, so let’s make sure that they are in good shape!

Winterizing keeps you safe! 
More than anything else, winterizing keeps you and your loved ones safe on the road! Winter driving comes with its own special set of issues and Ponder Auto Repair is here to help you navigate the winterizing of your vehicle, so you can just focus on navigating your busy life. It’s easy to get in touch with us by phone or schedule online. Our shop hours are 7:30am-5:30pm.
