Winterizations Tips

Check You Battery Charge

One of the most trying things to happen is being broken down on the side of the road with a dead battery. To prevent this, we recommend you check your battery's charge periodically. If you are unsure how to best check your battery on the road, you can refer to one of our self-help videos for the best way to monitor your battery.

If you are concerned your battery may be on the verge of failing, feel free to bring it by our dealership or battery check.

Check All For Tires for Tread Depth and Wear


Along with checking the battery, we recommend checking your tires' tread depth and side walls. If you notice your tires balding or looking a bit low, it's high time you bring your Subaru vehicle in for tire service and replacement. For drivers living in an area that features a good amount of snow and ice, we highly recommend installing winter tires on your vehicle.

Check Your Wiper Blades for Signs of Wear


Working wiper blades are vital when encountering freezing or falling snow conditions. Check your wipers to ensure they are removing ample snow and water. If you notice some streaking on the windshield, you will need to replace it at home or bring it by our dealership for service.

Check Your Vehicle fluids

When driving in winter, you recommend you routinely check your vehicle's fluid levels. These fluids include your antifreeze along with your engine oil and washer fluid. Please refer to your Subaru vehicle's owner's manual to ensure you have a good mix of antifreeze and water. Plus, a freeze-resistant washer fluid helps keep your windshield clean.

Keep Vehicle Stocked in the Event of an Emergency

If you find yourself parked on the side of the road, keeping your Subaru vehicle stocked with emergency supplies, including flashlights, ponchos, and repair tools, is a good idea. In addition, it's also good to wear first aid kits, flares, a shovel, and an ice scraper as part of your winter kit. That way, you'll have peace of mind with conditions that become adverse.

Interior and Upholstery Care

Inside your Subaru, you want to keep everything clean. Between water and road salt, your interior may get dirty over time, so it's a good idea to put in floormats on your vehicle that can hold water and salt and prevent damaging the upholstery..

Allow Ample Time for Vehicle Warmup


When starting your vehicle on a cold warning, you need to ensure your vehicle is working at normal operating temperature before setting off. If you wait inside your home as your vehicle warms, please ensure the vehicle is locked and secure to prevent theft.

Be Safe on the Road

Among all else, we at Tri-City Subaru want you to be safe on the road. When driving in low visibility, we encourage you to leave more room for the vehicle in front of you. Additionally, if road conditions become too adverse to travel through, it's best to stay home and wait for conditions to get better.
