Five Ways to Prepare Your Volvo for Michigan Winters

Slick, cold, snowy weather conditions are inevitable in this part of the country. However, there are ways you can prepare your Volvo for winter road conditions in Michigan.

  1. Winter Tires: Even if your Volvo has all-wheel drive, we recommend installing a set of winter tires for the colder season. These tires are designed and constructed with special tread patterns and rubber compounds to ensure grip in even the worst weather conditions.
  2. Battery Replacement: No one wants to end up stranded on the side of the road during winter. One of the best ways to make sure that doesn't happen is to have your car battery tested by a technician. If your battery is low on power, we can install a new one on the spot.
  3. Wiper Blades: Inclement weather can be a burden your wiper blades. If your Volvo has an old set that's on its last legs, you may want to upgrade before you're driving down the road with minimal visibility. We can help you pick out a high-performance wiper blade set that's ready for Michigan winter weather.
  4. Tune Up: Tune up appointments are a smart move for any vehicle owner. We recommend scheduling one at the beginning of every new season, and that includes winter. Our team will do a top to bottom checkup to make sure your Volvo is running correctly.
  5. Top Off Antifreeze: Antifreeze, also known as coolant, is important for all seasons. In the summer, it keeps your engine from overheating. During winter, it keeps your engine from freezing over in the winter. It's a good idea to have your antifreeze levels checked before temperatures drop too low.
