Vehicle Winterization in Burlington Ontario

Many car problems in the winter can be avoided by getting your vehicle properly inspected and maintained. Some of the most common components you should have inspected are your tires, brakes, wipers, battery, lights, antifreeze level, heater, and defroster. In the winter, your windshield wiper fluid can freeze. We recommend having your washer fluid exchanged with fluid made especially to work in freezing conditions.

We recommend getting your vehicle winter inspection from mid October to the end of November, but even if you're a little late with your vehicle winterization, it's still better to get it done even in December/January than to try and tough it out until spring.

RS Auto Clinic offers an incredible value on winter inspections.

We will perform a full winter maintenance inspection including:

  • AVR testing the battery and charging system for optimal condition
  • Checking cooling system, heater, anti-freeze, and defroster
  • Check tire condition for tread depth and uneven wear due to balance/alignment issues
  • Ensure your tires are properly inflated to the manufacturer's specifications
  • Checking all fluid levels and fluid conditions
  • Check for visible fluid leaks
  • Check conditions of all belts and hoses
  • Inspecting steering and suspension to help you stay on the road
  • Check windshield for cracks and stone chips before they become major problems
  • Check wiper and washer operation and condition of blades
  • Check all lights and lens conditions
  • Brake inspection and exhaust system.

Did you know?

Ontario winters are hard on your vehicle and pose major safety risks to you if you don't take the snow and ice seriously. Just as you winterize yourself by wearing layers of clothing and prepare your house by ensuring your furnace, insulation and weather stripping is in top notch condition, so too does your car need to be prepared for the year's harshest months.

Getting your car ready for winter and learning what it takes to drive safely on icy road conditions is the best thing you can do for your safety, as well as ensuring you don't get stranded in the cold with a car that won't start.
