Routine Car Maintenance in Albuquerque

Get Routine Car Maintenance in Albuquerque this Winter

Routine car maintenance in Albuquerque will keep you from breaking down

Winter driving can be hazardous: rain, fog and cold might make even the most experienced drivers wary. However, we in the southwest are lucky because winter is one of our nicest seasons. But winter is still a good time to think about seasonal car maintenance. Here are some car maintenance suggestions that people tend to forget. If you take care of these periodic repairs regularly, your car will run better, last longer, and be safer...for you AND your family.

Let Larry H. Miller Southwest Hyundai Albuquerque help you get your car in shape with new tires, windshield wipers, oil changes, and much more.

Get an Oil Change in Albuquerque

Everyone knows that you need to change your oil regularly, but many of us go way too long between oil changes. Your car may have burnt oil (so your car may be running on low oil), and if nothing else, old oil is dirty so doesn't lubricate as well. Take advantage of this opportunity to get an oil change in Albuquerque at Larry H. Miller Southwest Hyundai to keep your car from wearing out prematurely.

Choose the Right Tires for Albuquerque Driving

If you're someone who often goes off the beaten track and travels where snowfall is a regular occurrence (think winter skiing), consider getting special snow tires. Snow tires have bigger studs and are able to grip the road better in snowy or icy conditions, making them ideal for those who vacation at snowy destinations. If your biggest concerns are rain and slick roads, then a good step down from snow tires are all-weather tires. All-weather tires don't need to be changed with the seasons, offer decent performance in the rain and snow, and will get better gas mileage. You can visit us in Albuquerque or call us at (855)567-0661 to learn about having tires installed.

Let Us Check Your Car Battery

As the weather cools down in Albuquerque, the chemical reactions that take place in your car or truck battery slow down, making it more likely your battery will fail. Bring your car to the certified Hyundai mechanics at Larry H. Miller in Albuquerque to have them check the charge left in your battery, look for corrosion, and repair any loose wires or poor connections.

Check Your Windshield Wiper Fluid Levels and Get New Wiper Blades

Winter is not the only time to think about your wiper fluid and blades, but once again it's a good time to remember routine maintenance. If you're like me, you haven't checked your fluid levels in a while. Make sure to fill up your washer fluid regularly. This will help you see the road better-and keep you safer-when you go up to the mountains this winter. Most windshield wiper fluid comes with anti-freeze ingredients to make sure that it won't freeze in cold temperatures.

If you're like me, you've been looking through a streaky windshield for way too long. Windshield wiper blades are another thing we often neglect. If your windshield wipers don't let you see as well as you'd like, check your blades for wear, and know that it's time to replace your windshield wipers. Bring your car into our Albuquerque Auto Service Department. We'll find the right wipers to fit your car and show you how to replace them.

These are just a few starting points to make sure that your car is prepared for safe driving in the winter months. Start your new year off right with all your vehicle maintenance and repairs done right at Southwest Hyundai. Call us at 855-567-0661 to schedule an appointment.
