Recommended Winter Services at Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg

  • Tire Inspection – If you use winter tires, be sure to make the switch! It’s a good idea to have the winter tires inspected before you have them put on, of course. In addition, if you have all-season tires, we can inspect them to make sure they’re ready to handle the winter weather.
  • Windshield Inspection – If your windshield has any minor chips or cracks, the cold weather of winter can make them spread. We can inspect your windshield at Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg and let you know how best to handle any cracks or chips.
  • Check Windshield Wiper Blades – It’s always important to have windshield wiper blades in good condition, but it’s especially important in winter. Come to Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg, and we will make sure your wiper blades are in good shape.
  • Change Washer Fluid – To improve your visibility during winter, we can replace your windshield washer fluid with winter blend fluid, which is more resistant to freezing.
  • Check Antifreeze Level – The technicians at Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg can check your engine antifreeze (coolant) to ensure it’s ready for the season.
  • HVAC Inspection – Don’t get stuck with a busted heater on a cold day; instead, come to Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg for an HVAC inspection.
  • Battery Test – Being stranded in the cold with a dead battery is no fun, so we can check your battery to make sure it has what it takes to get through the winter.

Extra Tip: Prepare a Winter Roadside Emergency Kit

You should always have a roadside emergency kit in your vehicle, but it’s best to add a few items during the winter. Make sure you have warm clothes, blankets, water, and nonperishable food. It’s also a good idea to include a shovel and road salt.
