Volvos are known for being durable in Irvine. However, you still need to make sure that your Volvo gets the maintenance that it needs in order to work properly during the winter. The following maintenance tips will help keep your Volvo functioning the way that it should when winter rolls into Newport Beach.

Check the Fluid Levels

The oil, windshield wiper fluid, coolant fluid and power steering fluid have to be at the proper level. Refill the fluids if necessary. It will be harder for you to do this when the temperature drops in Fullerton.

Check the Tire Pressure

Your tires will be better equipped to handle driving through the snow and ice if they are at the proper pressure. Low temperatures can cause the tire pressure to drop as you drive around Santa Ana. It is also a good idea for you to replace your regular tires with winter tires. The tread on winter designs is better equipped for the winter weather in Huntington Beach.

Examine the Windshield Wipers

You will need your windshield wipers in order to drive through the rain you may encounter while commuting through Anaheim Hills. That is why it is important for you to check the wipers. Most windshield wipers need to be replaced at least once a year. If you notice scratching sounds when you turn on the windshield wipers, then you should get new ones.

You should be able to clean your windshield by using a small amount of windshield washer fluid. However, if the windshield is still dirty, then your windshield wiper may be to blame.

Check the Battery

You should bring your vehicle to the service team at Volvo Cars Orange County and have them check your battery. The cold weather will increase the battery's chances of failing. You don't want to go out on a cold day and realize that you are unable to start your vehicle. You may need to get your battery replaced.
