Preparing Your MINI Cooper For Winter

It’s almost impossible to fathom, but Jack Frost is just about to come back from his summer vacation. This of course means saying good-bye to the warm summer months and hello to winter and all of its wonders. Lake Villa IL MINI Cooper ServiceWith the coming fall and winter holiday season comes several must attend gatherings that you might be attending (not to mention all that shopping!) which is why it is time to prepare your MINI Cooper for the coming change in seasons now so that your car will be preforming at optimum levels by the time the first snow falls.

Getting Your MINI Ready to Tackle Old Man Winter

Before winter starts in earnest it is a great idea to get your MINI Cooper’s routine maintenance completed. This usually involves simple things like an oil change (especially if you switched to a light grade during the summer) and having your brakes inspected. While not always necessary here in Lake Villa IL, if you choose to opt for snow tires for your MINI Cooper then now is the time to have them installed. Even if you do not plan on buying snow tires it is appropriate to check the health of your MINI’s current tires. You want to make sure that your tires are in good enough shape to handle all that snow and ice that will soon be upon us. The importance of this cannot be underscored as roads can become a bit more dangerous after the first snowfall. There are also several smaller items that can be checked such as making sure your MINI Coopers windshield wipers won’t just smear the snow and sleet across your windshield. If you suspect that the blades on your MINI’s wipers are getting dull have them changed right away.
