As you read this blog today, you just went through almost-zero degree temperature in the Richmond, Virginia Metropolitan area.
Your kitchen and bathroom cabinets were open last night to let warm air caress your pipes. Your spigots were on slow drips so that your pipes wouldn’t freeze.
Area schools opened late or were closed altogether. People were encouraged to avoid going outside. We had to wrap ourselves in layers, put on stocking caps and scarves and mittens before heading out to start our Volvos and head to work.
Yes, winter has hit Central Virginia. You were prepared at home but was your Volvo ready for it?
If not, there are several things you can do to make sure your Volvo makes it through this frigid winter (which may be the coldest in twenty years) with minimal problems and lower repair bills.
1. Check your tires
2. Check your belts
3. Check the windshield wipers and washer fluid
4. Check the coolant
If you do this for your Volvo, you can minimize any damage your car may receive from whatever this winter weather can do to it. Or, if you want, you can call Paul’s “The Volvo Specialist” at (804) 276-6161 and we can winterize your Volvo for you.
