As temps start getting colder and colder, we’re saying goodbye to summer and hello to winter. At O’Brien Hyundai of Normal, we want to make sure your new or pre-owned Hyundai car is prepared for the cold. Our certified Hyundai service technicians have decades of experience winterizing vehicles, so today, we want to share a few expert tips on caring for your vehicle when temps drop.

A typical winterization procedure at our service center starts with a simple vehicle check-up. Our technicians will ensure your oil is clean and check your filters, fluids, and brakes. If anything does need to be replaced, we’ll use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Hyundai parts to ensure a perfect fit and lasting reliability. Our expert Hyundai technicians are here to make sure your Hyundai is cared for, from your roof racks to your tires.

Speaking of tires, one important way to winterize your vehicle is by making sure you’ve got the right tires for the cold. It can get pretty snowy in Illinois, so if you’ve been driving in all-season tires for the past few months, you might want to opt for more durable winter tires. These tires have larger and deeper tread patterns that can easily grip on snowy or icy roads. If you’re interested in installing winter tires on your vehicle, visit our Hyundai tire center for advice on which tires will serve your vehicle best.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to winterize your Hyundai SUV. Come in to our Hyundai service center in Normal, IL for any type of service your vehicle may need. Remember to check our website for service specials designed to save you money on costly maintenance and repairs.
