Winter Is Quickly Approaching!

Thursday, September 21, 2017

It’s the beginning of fall and the weather has been gorgeous. We all want to spend as much time outside as possible because we know what is coming…. it’s the inevitable…. WINTER.¬†As much as we don’t want to think about winter… now is a great time to be proactive and bring your car into Boggs Automotive for some preventative winter maintenance.

I will never forget last year our family was coming home from a weekend road trip to Wisconsin. We were driving on the Interstate through Chicago and it had just snowed a few inches… as we were driving, the wet salty snow was splashing up on our windshield. Each time we used the windshield washer fluid, it would freeze on the windshield and make it impossible to see. This is a horrible and frightening feeling when you’re going 65-70mph down the highway! Lesson learned!!! If we would have performed the preventative maintenance on our vehicle before winter, this would not have happened. For the winter months, washer fluid that can withstand subzero temperatures is available. Stop into Boggs Automotive today and ask us to replace yours! We also will check your coolant levels and test them to make sure they can withstand the drastic temperatures as well.

Andy, owner of Boggs Automotive, also warns that winter is very hard on your car battery. At Boggs, we have the equipment available to test your battery to make sure it has enough voltage for the cold winter months. The quality of batteries differ and the typical life expectancy is approximately 2 – 4 years. At Boggs Automotive, we prefer to use AC Delco batteries. They have a lifespan of 5 – 7 years.

 

Don’t wait too long! Call us for an appointment!
