Get Your Volkswagen Ready for Winter at North Penn Volkswagen in Colmar, PA

Winters in Montgomery County can hit hard. Before winter comes, you may take the heavy coats out of mothballs, make sure that your snowblower is gassed up, and check to see that you know where your snow boots are. But do you also get your Volkswagen ready? Winter can be tough on vehicles, and it’s best to make sure that your VW can handle the cold season ahead.



Winter Preparation Services

At North Penn Volkswagen, serving Montgomeryville and Doylestown, we want to help make sure your VW is ready for winter. That’s why we’ve put together this list. Take a look through it to get an idea of what services are best to winterize your car.

  • Get a Tire Inspection

    Your tires are key to your safety year-round, but they’re especially important when the roads are slick with snow or ice. A tire inspection will ensure that your tires have enough tread to keep you protected. If you use summer and winter tires instead of all-season tires, switching to winter tires is also necessary.

  • Get a Brake Inspection

    The brakes are another key safety feature, and braking can take longer on icy roads. Checking to make sure your brakes are at their best is a great way to prepare, and you might find out that you need new brake pads.

  • Check the Windshield Wiper Blades

    Windshield wiper blades don’t last forever, and it’s never good to have wiper blades that leave streaks and smears across your windshield. Have them checked, or check them on your own to see whether you need a new pair.

  • Change the Windshield Washer Fluid to a Winter Blend

    While you’re at it, this is a good time to switch to a winter blend windshield washer fluid. This blend is more capable of standing up to below-freezing temperatures.

  • Have the HVAC System Inspected

    You always want the heater working in wintertime! Not only does it help keep you warm, but it can also help defrost your windshield. We can inspect this system to make sure everything is working smoothly.

  • Check Chips and Cracks on the Windshield

    Cold, wet weather can turn small chips or cracks into big vision-obstructing cracks, so have them taken care of when they’re still small!

  • Have Your Battery Tested

    Batteries often struggle in cold weather, so have yours tested. We can see how much life is left in it and let you know if it needs to be replaced.

  • Check the Engine Coolant

    The coolant in your engine is roughly equal parts of water and antifreeze. We can check the coolant to ensure that the levels are okay and that it’s not breaking down.

  • Put Together a Roadside Safety Kit

    In case you get stuck or stranded somewhere in poor weather, it’s best to have a winter safety kit. You should include water, food, blankets, warm clothes (including socks), a shovel, salt, and other winter-specific items.
