Prepare for Winter at Gervais Volkswagen of Lowell

Winter introduces all sorts of challenges for drivers in the Lowell area.  From frigid temperatures that make your car battery struggle to life to nasty weather that buries your commute in ice and snow, there isn't really anything about winter driving that makes life any easier.  Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prepare your vehicle for winter and keep going strong once the season hits with full force.  At Gervais Volkswagen of Lowell, we want you to be ready for anything, so you can count on us to help you get your ride ready for whatever obstacles winter tries to throw at you.  Here are a few winter preparedness tips:



Your tires can make a world of difference when it comes to navigating winter roads, so it's a good idea to make sure you have winter tires and that they're in good shape.  One of the biggest things that needs your attention in the winter is tire pressure.  Now is the time of year when your low tire pressure light likes to come on to tell you that you need more air in your tires.  As temperatures drop, tires lose pressure, so it's important to pay attention to that low pressure warning and act accordingly so your tires can last longer and perform better.  If you need winter tires or someone to check the status of your tires, our service center can help!

Winter Service

Our team can help your car get into shape for winter by taking care of a few key items.  We can run an inspection to make sure your vehicle is ready for cold and snow, test or replace your battery to reduce the risk of it dying and stranding you in the bitter cold, adjust or change your brakes to make sure you have adequate stopping power, replace burned-out lights to help you see better when winter drains the light from the sky earlier in the day, and much more.  Your safety is important to us, so please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with our service center so we can make sure you're ready for winter's trials!
