Here In the Hartford, CT Area, Winter Car Prep Is Real!

Wondering How to Get Your Honda Car, Crossover, SUV, or Truck Ready for Old-Man Winter?

Winter is just about on our doorstep, so here are some quick service tips for folks in the Hartford, CT area who want to get their Honda cars, crossovers, SUVs, or trucks ready for the coming onslaught of snow and cold!

Some Quick Service Steps to Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter:

Getting your car ready for winter means more than just getting a checkup—here are some steps you can take to ensure you’re ready for whatever father winter has up his sleeves, and if you need any help getting ready, our professional Service Center is here for you!

  • Check or Change Your Wiper Blades: Being able to see clearly while you drive is crucial, so it won’t do to have dry, cracked wiper blades this winter. Before the snow arrives, check your wiper blades. If they’re cracking or brittle, be sure to get some new blades installed so you can see clearly during winter driving!
  • Check or Change Your Tires: Not everyone wants to switch to winter tires (though it’s a god idea!), but even if you don’t change your tires over, you can still check them to ensure optimal performance going into winter. This means checking tire pressure, wear and tear, and balance. Not sure what to look for? Bring it to our Honda professionals and we’ll get you rotated and balanced quickly!
  • Keep Gas In Your Tank: While you might not be driving quite as often in the winter, it can be important to keep your gas tank closer to filled than empty to prevent any of the lines and tubes from collecting condensation and freezing! That’ll really put a cramp in your style! Keeping your tank filled can help to prevent this unfortunate occurrence!


Winter can wreak havoc on your car, so taking some steps to prepare is a good way to protect yourself and your investment! If you’re looking to get some service before winter hits us full-force, schedule an appointment with our Honda Service Center and let the pros help you out.
