Having a vehicle to get to and from work or school is a big help. You don’t have to rely on public transportation, a rideshare service, or a friend or family member to drive you everywhere. At the same time, owning a vehicle comes with a lot of responsibility and expenses. An important thing you must do prior to the winter in Elkins, WV is to have your Ford Explorer serviced right now.

Have the Tires Checked and Replaced

The tires are an important part of your vehicle. The better shape they are in the safer you will be when on the roads of Clarksburg, WV and the surrounding areas. When the treads get too low it is time to replace the tires. If the treads aren’t too low you might only need a tire rotation to make sure they wear evenly.

Check Fluid Levels and Other Parts

It’s a good idea to bring your Ford Explorer into our service department at Elkins Fordland for service prior to the winter months. Our experienced technicians can check your fluid levels, windshield wipers, lights, brakes and other important parts to make sure they are in good working order. If fluid levels need to be topped off they will handle that before you leave. You might want to consider replacing the windshield wipers if they haven’t been in a couple of years.

Change the Oil

Now is the right time to change the oil in your Ford Explorer. Why? A fresh oil change will get your vehicle through whatever Mother Nature will throw at it this winter in West Virginia. You won’t have to worry about the oil until the spring.
