Prepare your Toyota vehicle for winter conditions by taking it to Toyota on Western. Whether you have a new or used Toyota model, such as a Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Highlander, Toyota RAV4, or Toyota Tundra, we can help you get your Toyota vehicle ready for the harsh conditions ahead. We can help you by providing you with many routine services. Suppose it's your first winter in your Toyota car. In that case, you might be interested in learning more about your four-wheel drive, which comes on many Toyota models and can be beneficial when you want to stay on the road and get out of deep and heavy snowfall.

Top Winterizing Services


One of the most important things you need to do before the snow falls in Chicago is changing your tires from summer to winter sets. Summer tires are a great option when the weather is hot and muggy because they are equipped for better stopping and maneuvering control. But when the weather gets cold, you need a tire with different groove patterns so that your tires remain in contact with Oak Lawn roads even when it's slushy. You'll need a different tire so that the rubber is soft enough to grip the road rather than slip on ice. We can change over all your tires from summer to winter ones easily.


We can also switch out your battery if it's not performing optimally. Cold weather tends to be harsh on batteries, and you want to avoid getting stranded out in an Orland Park parking lot at night because your engine won't turn over. It's also wise to have your fluids topped off, especially your antifreeze. This fluid protects your vehicle's components in harsh cold weather. But it would help if you also had your other fluids replaced, such as the windshield wiper fluid, so that you can rest easy knowing that you have an effective way to clear away dirty moisture. We can also change out your wiper blades. When the weather gets cold, the rubber of the blades is more likely to crack, which won't clear the snow and ice from your windshield. You want your wiper blades to be pliable so that they cleanly clear off all debris easily.

Familiarize Yourself with Four-Wheel Drive

If you recently purchased your Toyota vehicle, you should check whether your model comes with a four-wheel drive. The four-wheel drive will make getting your vehicle unstuck from the snow easier, but it will also give you better handling so that you don't go in a ditch. Toyota models like the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra, and Toyota Tacoma often come with four-wheel drive, making it easier for you to go places with rough terrains, such as mountain passes.
