Has your car had its winter inspection?

For many drivers of performance automobiles, winter driving is a nightmare. If there’s even a chance you might encounter winter weather this holiday season, trust our technicians at City Auto Repair in Gainesville, FL to have you ready.

Unless you have an all-wheel-drive Audi, Subaru, or similar vehicle, there’s a pretty good chance your car wasn’t made for inclement weather. Rear-wheel drive BMWs, Mercedes, Jaguars, and so on are the most problematic during poor weather conditions - the combination of power, rear-wheel drive, and performance tires don’t mix well even with the rain.

Once you add performance modifications to the mix, things can get even trickier. A car that performs well in a race will seldom do as well in the snow. Not to mention, your vehicle requires proper coolant mixture, hoses, and belts in good condition and tires that aren’t worn out to stay reliable and prevent you from being stranded on a cold night.

When it’s warm outside, you don’t think much about your coolant, and you may even run water in your system. While this is fine most of the time, all it takes is one dip below freezing temperatures to destroy an engine in a matter of hours. Don’t let that happen to you - rest easy knowing your car is ready for anything this winter might throw at you. Have your coolant tested, inspected, and brought up to par.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, our technicians have you covered. For the best performance service shop in Gainesville, FL, call or stop by City Auto Repair today.
