All Star Hyundai’s Winter Vehicle Tips

2

As the cooler temperatures fill our hearts with joy this holiday season, our vehicles are needing a little attention this season. As we adjust to the chill, give some thought to your vehicle and treat it with extra TLC this season. We have put together a few tips that will keep your vehicle running smoothly this winter season.

As the leaves fall from the trees, we don’t want them to make compost on our vehicle. As we may think this is harmless to our vehicle, it can cause havoc down the line. When debris builds up in the areas of your car where the water is supposed to drain, leaks and corrosions occur. The air plenum near the windshield is the perfect spot where we see this happening. Do not let the leaves or other organic material pile up on your vehicle.

Worn tires are dangerous in the winter months. Your tires should be examined for the remaining tread life. Tire pressure should be checked once a month; do so by letting the tire cool down before checking the pressure. You will also need to have your tires rotated as recommended. Never neglect the spare tire, and ensure that your jack is in good condition.

Putting these tips into practice will help maintain the integrity of your vehicle. As the cooler air sweeps through our environment, take the time to make sure your vehicle is up to par to handle the weather conditions that could possibly come our way.  Safety comes first, and the All Star Family is here to help with servicing your vehicle needs!

Have a Game Plan For Fall Service

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Hyundai has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

Wheel-Alignment

  • Brakes

Have the brake system checked, including brake linings, rotors and drums. Brakes are critical to vehicle safety and particularly important when driving on slick roads during the colder months.

  • Check Your Fuel System

Keep the gas tank as full as possible. This limits condensation in the gas tank to minimize water, which can freeze, in the fuel line. “Antigel” additives are available, particularly for diesel-powered vehicles. On non-fuel-injected cars, keep the choke/carburetor butterfly lubricated so it won’t stick!

  • Check the lights

Walk around the outside of the car and check the operation of all lights: headlights, taillights, parking lights, brake lights and emergency flashers. Replace all broken bulbs and those that have stopped working. Make sure all lights are clean. If you own an older vehicle with sealed-beam headlamps, you might want to pony up for halogen lamps for improved visibility and safer driving.

These are just a few things All Star Hyundai suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer! Make sure to schedule your service appointment, and view all of our Service Specials!
