Prepare Your Subaru for Indianapolis Weather

Driving conditions in Indianapolis can be challenging in any weather. However, these challenges are why people choose to drive a Subaru vehicle. Most new Subaru vehicles have a symmetrical all-wheel drive (AWD) system that enables drivers to stay in control on the roads around Zionsville. Yet, changes in the weather can take their toll on any vehicle. Here is a guide on how we can help you prepare your vehicle for seasonal changes.

Preparing Your Vehicle For The Winter

Winter can be a difficult time for your vehicle, especially in areas that experience months of freezing temperatures, snow, and ice. These harsh conditions can damage your Subaru and make driving conditions hazardous. However, you can avoid costly repairs and get the most out of your vehicle by preparing your vehicle for winter. When you visit our Subaru service department in Indianapolis, we can help you winterize your car or SUV.

If you want to prevent your vehicle from breaking down in freezing weather, you should prepare it well ahead of time. The autumn months are a great time to get your Subaru ready for the winter. Routine vehicle maintenance, such as a full-service oil change, is essential to combat the problems winter weather causes. We will replace all the old fluids with fresh ones at our service department and ensure the car battery has plenty of power. In addition, we will check your windshield wipers and replace them if necessary. Our service technicians will also check your vehicle's tire pressure and braking systems to ensure they maintain their responsiveness in cold weather. You may also need to consider changing your tires to winter or all-weather tires to combat the frozen roads around Terre Haute.

Preparing Your Vehicle For The Summer

Transitioning from the frigid winter months to the heat, humidity, and pollution of summer can cause various problems. Fortunately, preparing your vehicle for the summer is not much different than preparing your Subaru for the winter. We recommend preparing your SUV or sedan for the summer months in the spring to take care of minor issues before they become serious problems.

Bring your vehicle to our dealership near Brownsburg for a full-service oil change to ensure your vehicle is ready for hot weather. Your vehicle's engine requires a certain level of fluids to keep it running smoothly. These fluids lubricate the various components of your vehicle's engine and act as coolants, so it is important to maintain proper fluid levels.

Not only will we replace the oil and oil filter, but we will also check all the other fluid levels. These include the coolant, transmission, brakes, power steering, and windshield washer fluids. In addition, our technicians will also check your battery because the heat from summer driving can put the battery under additional stress and cause it to break down.

Healthy tires are essential for summertime driving around Plainfield. Excessive heat increases the air pressure in your tires, which can lead to cracking, blistering, and uneven tread wear. All-weather tires are good for summertime driving. Yet, you may want to consider getting summer tires if you live in an area that experiences intense summer heat.

Fall and Spring Vehicle Preparation

The Indianapolis area experiences varying temperatures and weather conditions during the fall and spring months. These changes can cause the pressure in your tires to fluctuate, so check the pressure in your tires and check the tire treads for wear and tear. In addition, you should check the lights, such as the headlights, taillights, brake lights, and signal lights to make sure they are working. Plus, check the heating and cooling system to see if it works properly to keep you comfortable as the seasons change.

Our service department uses authentic Subaru parts and recommended fluids to give your vehicle the best possible care. Please call us today and schedule an appointment to get your Subaru ready for changes in the weather.
