Let’s Get Your Car Ready for Winter

Winter can take a toll on the condition of your vehicle, as it will struggle with all that Jack Frost has to offer. At Nordgren Automotive, we want to make sure your vehicle is up for the challenge. Our team will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, so it is ready and safe for the upcoming chilly months.


During winter, we are faced with a myriad of elements, including snow, rain, and wind, and most often, your car is your first line of defense against these elements. That’s why it is important to have a technician comprehensively examine your car, as winter is fast approaching. Upon arrival at our auto repair shop in Medina, our technician will inspect these aspects and more on your vehicle:


  1. Windshield wipers: Old and ineffective windshield wipers can make all the difference, especially when it comes to your and your family’s safety. If your windshield wipers are streaky or leaving behind smudges, don’t hesitate to have them looked at by a professional.

  2. Tires: Tire inspection and replacement, if needed, are incredibly important especially when the roads are going to be slick with rain, ice, or snow. We can also go over which set of tires is suitable for you and your vehicle, particularly if you are looking to install winter or all-season tires.

  3. Battery: The colder the weather, the harder it is for your battery to start. Chemical reactions in your engine operate more slowly in chilly temperatures, which causes your battery to work extra hard.

  4. Defroster and Heater: During winter, you are going to need your defroster and heater working in tip-top shape, and our team will thoroughly both of these systems to ensure they are ready to meet the demands of this cold season.

  5. Fluids: Our team will inspect any and all fluids in your car, as some fluid ratios change as the weather gets chillier. For example, it should be a 60/40 ratio of coolant and water in winter, compared to a 50/50 ration in other seasons.

Our team at Nordgren Automotive is here to get your vehicle ready for the winter months ahead. We will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, leaving no stone unturned. We hope, after our technicians have serviced your car, your vehicle will be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way. To schedule an appointment at Nordgren Automotive, call us at (763) 703-1365.
