Certified Volkswagen Winter Maintenance Services

Many essential automotive components experience rapid depreciation yet need to be at their best when winter arrives with different driving conditions and risks. Volkswagen recommends taking a proactive approach to winter driving conditions while maximizing reliability and safety with this maintenance:

  • Tire Inspection - Veteran drivers in Huntsville, AL, know that it usually does not snow very much, but roads are slick when it does. Volkswagen recommends that winter maintenance include a tire inspection with tread depth measurement to ensure optimal traction and safety on slick roads.
  • Battery Inspection & Testing - A hot climate is the #1 threat to battery life, and colder conditions lead to sluggish engine starting. Volkswagen recommends that winter maintenance include a battery inspection with electrical testing. Be sure to replace old batteries with a failed inspection immediately.
  • Brake Inspection - Winter maintenance should include a complete braking system inspection and service as needed for the pads, rotors, fluid, or other components.
  • Wiper Blades Checked & Replaced - Volkswagen recommends a wiper blades inspection and replacement if they have rubber damage, perform poorly by leaving excessive streaks/film/haze, or are over 1 year old.
  • HVAC Inspection - Check the heating components for sufficient cold-weather performance, including the heater, defroster, steering wheel, and seat warmers (if equipped).
  • Coolant Fluid/Antifreeze Check & Exchange - Volkswagen recommends checking the coolant fluid/antifreeze and top it off or get an exchange service as needed.
  • Windshield Crack & Chip Inspection - Winter maintenance should include a windshield inspection for cracks and chips. Volkswagen recommends getting windshield repair for minor blemishes and replacement service for excessive damage.
