Vehicle Winterizing Tips for Seattle, Washington

As you might've guessed from the name, your vehicle's antifreeze is essential during the winter. The first thing you should do is check your antifreeze coolant levels, and top them off as necessary. Here in our own Seattle area, you may not need to switch to winter tires - you'll want the tread technology of your all-weathers for our rainy winters - but driving in the mountains on ice, snow or slush-covered roads without snow tires can be perilous. If you plan on doing any high-altitude adventuring, our service team can recommend and install some studless snow tires. Finally, it's important to check your defroster. A failed defroster can put you in a bind when the temperatures drop. Frost can completely cover your windshield and render your vehicle blind faster than you think! Ensure your heater and defrost setting are operating properly, and bring your Subaru to us for a quick fix if it's not.
