As autumn makes its way to Milwaukee and the temperatures begin to dip, things start to change. The leaves turn red and orange, animals begin to gather food for the upcoming winter, and smart drivers bring their cars to service shops. The fall months present their challenges for your Hyundai, so it’s always best to make sure it’s ready for what lies ahead. At John Amato Hyundai of Milwaukee, we provide several fall services for drivers in Menomonee Falls, Brown Deer, and beyond. Keep reading to find out what you’ll get when you bring your Hyundai to our service center for fall service.
The tires are some of the most critical safety features on your vehicle. To be in good condition, your tires need to have the right amount of tread. When our technicians check your tire tread depth, they will make sure that the tread is at least 2/32” deep. This is the lowest that your tread can legally get, and going below this depth can put you and others in danger. But when it starts to snow later in the fall, even 2/32” might not be enough, and it may be wise to install new tires. Fortunately, our tire store is filled with Hyundai-approved tires built to handle slick roads and keep you in control.
In addition to having enough tread, your vehicle’s tires should also be adequately inflated. As the weather gets colder, your tires begin to lose air, and this can be more dangerous than you might think. When your tires have too little air pressure, more of the tire will contact the ground. In addition to lowering fuel economy, this can decrease handling and even increase the risk of blowouts. If our technicians find that your tires are underinflated, they’ll fill them to factory specifications.
Batteries have a much harder time starting in colder weather, which means that you’re more likely to be left stranded with a dead battery. To spare you the pain of jump-starting your vehicle, our technicians will check your battery’s charge, suggesting replacement if it’s low.
Visibility is a critical component of safety year-round, but old windshield wiper blades can be easy to ignore. But if you’re trapped in a storm with wiper blades that only smear and obscure your windshield, you’ll realize just how important they are. If your wiper blades require replacement, we’ll be glad to switch them out for new OEM blades.
You’ve probably used the A/C portion of your HVAC system over the summer, but fall is when the heater starts to come into play. Our technicians will inspect the entire system, making sure everything is working as it should. This includes not just the heater itself, but also any seat warmers and steering wheel warmers your car might have. The HVAC system helps defrost your windshield, so a functioning system is suitable for more than just comfort: it also keeps you safe.
