You might not want to think about it, but winter is on its way. Here in the Washington DC area and surrounding places like Alexandria, Arlington and up to Baltimore are going to want to be prepared, especially for winter driving. At Fitzgerald Hyundai in Rockville, our service team can make sure that everything is squared away with your vehicle and provide winter maintenance and car prep for you.

There's a number of things you can do to get your vehicle ready for winter, and a lot of it is routine services. The first thing is to check your heating system so you know that it works properly and will warm you up on those cold days when you get in your vehicle and begin your commute or head out to enjoy the winter lights and more. Another thing to make sure you have done is getting your fluids topped off, as you want the right levels to ensure they don't freeze and possibly cause some other issues.

We also advise getting your tires checked for the right inflation levels, as colder air can reduce air pressure, plus having tires rotated as well if it's been a while since the last time you had that done. We also can install snow tires if you use them. The same goes for oil and filter changes, and any basic service you need done. You should also make sure you have new wiper blades as the right set of blades can help clear off snow and wet winter weather so you can see easier as well.

There's all types of services we can handle here in addition to keeping you prepped for winter. We can also offer advise such as having a winter-weather ready kit with you including a flashlight, blankets, shovel and first aid in the vehicle just in case you need it. You can schedule service online with us and find an appointment that works for you so we can begin helping your Hyundai get prepared for winter.
