  • Brakes: With slick roads, it's even more important that your brakes perform correctly. So make sure that you have your brake pads inspected to see if you need a replacement.
  • Tires: Make sure you check the depth of the tread on your tires or have our staff install winter tires on your sedan, SUV, or truck. This way, you can enjoy excellent traction when you're out and about around Huntington, WV.
  • Heating and Cooling System: You want to have the right amount of antifreeze in your radiator and that your defrost system is working correctly. So, you have enough visibility on your commute in the morning.
  • Wipers and Windshield Fluid: Wiper blades are one of the easiest things to replace on your car, and they are relatively inexpensive, so make sure you put on a new pair of wiper blades ahead of the cold months so that they can handle ice and snow. And you want to make sure you have enough windshield wiper fluid.
