Important Winter Weather Services for Your Vehicle

Winter has formally arrived here in New England, and that means drivers are facing a variety of challenges on the roads of Massachusetts and beyond. From frigid temperatures to snowfall and more, winter brings a flurry of road-going obstacles to the region. But with proper maintenance, you can make sure your car is ready to take on the elements.

  • We here at Sarat Ford recommend installing winter tires. These tires are made from a special rubber compound that's designed to retain grip in sub-freezing temperatures. Winter tires also use special tread patterns to help maintain traction in snow, ice, and other elements. This service can have a significant impact on your vehicle's performance throughout the cold months.
  • If it's been a while, you may want to top of the antifreeze levels in your car. When mixed with water, this fluid helps to maintain even operating temperatures inside your car's engine. Importantly, antifreeze lowers the freezing point of water and allows your engine to operate properly in sub-freezing temperatures.
  • No one wants to be caught stuck in a snow storm with worn out wiper blades. Now is the time to install a new set before the next nor'easter hits. It's also smart to top off the washer fluid so you're ready to clear debris from your windshield.

Sarat Ford is ready to help with all your winter-related auto services. Stop by our service center to learn about recommended winter maintenance and schedule your next appointment!
