Most winter breakdowns come from bad batteries, poor antifreeze condition, and belts and hoses that are past their prime. We'll check all these along with the condition of your tires, steering, brakes, and suspension.
Getting your vehicle ready for winter now is the smart and safe move. Breaking down during one of KC's cold spells is something we don't want to hear happening to you. We're happy to check the basics on your vehicle for free to be sure you're ready to tackle all Old Man Winter can bring.
While others are selling chemical flushes for hundreds of dollars, we're promoting the right service for winterization - a coolant/antifreeze exchange. Flushes are for removing contamination from a failure - fluid exchanges are kind of like oil changes; you do it for maintenance reasons. All coolant/antifreeze types break down over time causing a reduction in protection and a higher freeze point. In our climate, the traditonal 50/50 mix is preferred as it protects to -35 degrees. (honestly, we're moving if it gets colder than that!) Removing all the old fluid and installing the proper mix of water and type is the right way to service your vehicle.
We sell and service Interstate and ACDelco Batteries for any make and model vehicle. Get the #1 battery and the national warranty that comes with it, or go for ACDelco's reputation of quality and their 5 Year free replacement. Either way, your new battery will have the power to get you going on the coldest of days.
