Winter Car Service Tips

Now that winter is almost here, it’s time to perform some seasonal care on your vehicle. These car service tips from Red Wing Chevrolet will help you get your vehicle set for safe and efficient driving throughout the cold season.

Check and Charge Your Battery

Cold weather is tough on car batteries. An aged battery may work fine in the fall, only to fail you in the winter. Get your battery checked now to avoid a jump later. Be sure to keep jumper cables and reflective safety cones in your vehicle just in case you need them.

Tire Pressure

Your tires are also more sensitive in the winter time. Cold temperatures can cause major fluctuation in tire pressure. But for the safest and most efficient driving, you want your tires to be in good condition. Check your tire pressure regularly throughout the winter and watch for any damage or worn tread.

Windshield Wiper Fluid

With snow, ice, and road salt in the mix, you’ll be fighting a dirty windshield all season. Make sure that your windshield wiper fluid is topped off and that your wiper blades are in good condition so that you’ll have clear visibility this winter.

Christmas in Minnesota

Christmas in Minnesota

We know that the winter in Minnesota is cold and dark, and sometimes all you want to do is stay home—even when you love your job like we do at Red Wing Chevrolet! But winter and Christmas in Minnesota is such a magical time, and with so much to do we can’t help but venture out into the snowy winter wonderland that is our state. Here are some of our favorite Christmas sights to see.

Bemidji, Minnesota

If you’ve never been on a snowmobile, now is the time to try it. The town of Bemidji, which is known for being the first town on the Mississippi River, has two huge wilderness trails perfect for snowmobiling.

Chilly Dogs Sled Dog Trips in Ely

If you generally associate Christmastime with a cozy horse-drawn carriage ride, it may be time to break tradition. This year, opt for a thrilling dog sled ride in Northeast Minnesota instead. It’s an exciting experience that you won’t soon forget!

Bentleyville Tour of Lights in Duluth

No Christmas season is complete without laying eyes on some amazing light displays. A trip to Duluth will be well worth it to see the Bentleyville Tour of Lights, the largest display in the midwest. Bring the whole family to enjoy 3.5 million lights, taking breaks to sip hot chocolate around the fire pit. Trust us, Bentleyville Tour of Lights is one magical holiday experience you don’t want to miss.

From our Red Wing Chevrolet family to yours, have a happy Holiday season.
