Winter driving is a lot different from summer driving around Gaithersburg but can also be much harder on your vehicle. Whether it's snowy and blizzard conditions, icy roads, or just cold temperatures, winter driving can be difficult unless your vehicle has been serviced and made ready for winter.

Come to Fitzgerald Subaru of Gaithersburg to check out our supply of winter automotive products, get tips on winter service care, or schedule an appointment to have your vehicle serviced. Here are some tips on getting your vehicle ready for winter.

Our Subaru Service Tips

Check Your Battery. Extreme cold temperatures can be very hard on batteries. If your battery needs repeated charging, it may need to be inspected or replaced with a new battery from our dealership near Germantown, MD.

Check Fluids. Your vehicle requires various fluids, including brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, oil, and windshield washer. Make sure all levels are full.

Change Oil and Filter. Be sure to have the oil and filter changed before winter and have it done as scheduled throughout winter around Rockville.

Check Tires. Check that your tires are in good condition with plenty of tread and make sure they have sufficient air pressure. Cold temperatures can cause your tires to lose pressure, so monitor them regularly.

Windshields should be in good condition, and your windshield washer reservoir should be full. Keep an extra bottle of windshield washer fluid in the car for emergencies around Washington DC.
