Popular Fall Maintenance Items

Staying on top of your car's routine service schedule is the key to ensuring peak performance but keeping up with maintenance is especially important when the weather threatens to take a turn for the worse in the Johnson County  area. Don't worry, though -- our service center is here to help! Here are a few of the high-quality fall services we offer to our customers:

  • Car battery service: A weak battery in summer can turn into a dead one in winter, increasing your risk of getting stranded. We can test and inspect your battery to make sure it has what it needs to get through winter.
  • Tire check: Adequate tire treat is essential at all times of the year, but you'll need it especially when the roads turn slick and gaining traction is more of a struggle. We can inspect your tires and perform tire services like tire rotations to help you get the best possible performance from those rings of rubber.
  • Wiper replacement: Visibility is crucial in winter, so it's important to make sure your windshield wipers are in good shape. Wiper blades typically need to be replaced every six to twelve months, so if you've noticed that your wipers leave streaks, we recommend replacing them.

These are but a few of our most popular fall services here at our Volkswagen service center, so feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions about caring for your vehicle and preparing it for winter in the Johnson County area.
