Winterizing Your Hyundai Vehicle
From roughly December to March, residents of Normal, IL have to contend with everything from snowstorms to freezing rain to subzero temperatures. These wintry conditions can wreak havoc on the roads and on your car. That’s why winterizing is so critical. This annual process helps protect your Hyundai Elantra or Hyundai Sonata from weather-related wear and tear.
Winterizing is a multistep process, but you can take a few simple steps at home before coming to our Hyundai service center. First off, make sure your fuel tank is at least half-full at all times in order to prevent the gas lines from getting clogged or freezing. You should also check your tire pressure often since extreme cold can cause an uptick in the rate of deflation.
How We Can Help You Winterize
Bring your Hyundai car or SUV into our service center at 600 Greenbriar Dr to complete the winterizing process. Our automotive technicians will inspect your car’s battery, brakes, defroster, and oil viscosity to make sure they’re all properly functioning and suitable for wintertime use. We can also check your car’s four-wheel-drive system if it has one.
Next, our technicians can install a new set of winter tires if you opt for them. We carry tires from trusted brands like Michelin, Bridgestone, and Goodyear, all of which are designed with maximum traction in mind. This is of the utmost importance when you’re driving on roads covered in packed snow, black ice, and slush.
So make a service appointment at our Hyundai dealership near Bloomington, IL before the first snowflake falls. You can request an appointment time online, or you can call our service department directly at 855-315-5241. Either way, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your Hyundai vehicle is prepared for winter weather!
