Land Rover Seasonal Winter Service: Preparing Your Luxury SUV for Icy Weather

Before winter arrives and frigid temperatures with it, we here at Land Rover Troy recommend brining your vehicle in for some routine winter-readiness services.

The upper Midwest are notorious for particularly harsh winter weather, and southern Michigan is certainly a contributor to that reputation. We're used to frigid temperatures and large helpings of snow here in the Troy and Birmingham areas. Fortunately, the potent all-terrain performance of Land Rover models helps many local drivers traverse the wintry elements with relative ease.

But despite the rugged performance that Land Rover models are known for, it's still smart to make sure yours is ready to take on the worst of the colder months. There are several key services to address that can help you have an easier experience throughout winter.

  • Replace your windshield wipers -- natural wear and tear can chew up the blades and reduce effectiveness. You'll want fresh blades to handle the frequent rain, ice, and snow of winter.
  • Have your battery checked or replaced if needed. This can help you avoid getting stranded in freezing temperatures.
  • Get your tires checked for excess wear. Bald tires make for tough going in snowy and icy conditions -- even in all-wheel drive Land Rover SUVs.
  • Have your antifreeze topped off. Antifreeze plays a critical role in regulating engine temperatures in cold and hot weather alike.
  • Prepare a winter weather kit to keep in your Land Rover. These useful kits should include items like a flashlight, blankets, extra food, jumper cables, etc.

The Land Rover Troy service center near Bloomfield and Royal Oak can help you with other winter-weather preparations as well. Just give us a call and we'll be ready to schedule your appointment.
