Preventative Service for Winter

Routine vehicle service is always important, but especially in the winter. Here are some of the most important service tasks you’ll want to schedule this season:  

  • Oil changes: The oil in your vehicle protects your engine from dirt and debris on the road. During the winter, roads have salt, dirt, and other types of grime that can damage your engine. It’s a good idea to have your oil changed early so you have fresh lubricant at all times.
  • Hose and belt inspections: We rely on our hoses and belts to keep our vehicles running right. They’re made of materials that can become cracked and damaged in the cold, which is why it’s important to get them inspected before winter arrives.
  • Battery tests: Our batteries can lose as much as 50-percent of their capacity in below-freezing temperatures. Our expert team here at MINI of Bedford can inspect your battery and replace it if needed.  
  • Tire changes and rotations: Winter tires aren’t just helpful for driving in snowy and icy conditions. They’re also designed to withstand cold temperatures, which means you’ll have greater traction and control no matter what the weather might bring.
