BMW Prepare Your Vehicle For The Winter

Should You Winterize Your BMW?

This question often comes up, and it depends mostly on where you live. If the climate is relatively the same year-round, then this service is of little value. However, if you live in environments where there are even moderate winter conditions, this service becomes a necessity, and you may wonder when to winterize my car.

Our Auto Technicians at Bill Jacobs BMW Can Perform:

  • Tire Inspections – We recommend appropriate types of winter tires if weather conditions necessitate them
  • Battery Inspection – This is crucial because cold weather can drain your battery’s life, and it is important to make sure it is functioning properly
  • Adjusting your coolant/antifreeze ratios are necessary for colder months to resist freezing in the radiator and related components
  • HVAC inspection will be performed, and heated elements like steering wheels and seats will be inspected for functionality

Importance of Winterizing Your Vehicle

Several services included in a winterization service will ensure your vehicle is prepared for the demands of ice, snow, and poor road conditions. Brakes that stop correctly are necessary for icy conditions, and a brake inspection will inform technicians if you need replacement or adjustments.
Visibility is another factor in winter. Wiper blades that are cracked or working poorly will not aid in visibility and should be replaced. Technicians inspect for cracks and chips in the windshield when they replace the windshield fluid with a winter blend. Your windshield needs to be clear when the weather makes visibility poor.

Will My Vehicle Be Ok if I Don’t Winterize?

It is up to you. Driving in inclement weather without proper tires can be dangerous. A heating system that is malfunctioning can leave you in a freezing car. Even broken windshield blades can become a big issue. Winter can be harsh, and if your vehicle is not prepared, it may not operate at all.
