In Everett, Washington, and the western Snohomish County communities of Bothell, Lynnwood, Marysville, or Lake Stevens, winter weather can be brutal – both for you and your Honda. The unique elements of consistent rain, freezing temperatures, and occasional snow create problems best addressed long before these adverse conditions arrive. Your driving safety is our concern, and we at Klein Honda are prepared to assist you in getting your vehicle ready for your often-perilous journeys.
Heavy rainfall during the winter months means traction and visibility challenges. Our wet roads create special concerns for your safety. Tires with excessive wear can be hazardous due to hydroplaning, which causes your tires to ride on a thin film of water, leading to a loss of steering control. Further, worn tires have little of their factory-cut siping left to improve traction on our wet and occasionally snowy and icy roads.
Worn wiper blades can severely hamper your driving visibility. As wiper blades typically last less than a year, the chances are that yours are ready for replacement. And installing a heavier-duty wiper blade can give you peace of mind during our dark and wet winter months. Splashback from other vehicles will often douse your windshield with road grime that your wipers must quickly remove, so sufficient wiper fluid is essential to a clean glass surface. In the instances where we get freezing weather, the anti-freeze in the fluid helps to clear your windshield of ice. And, let’s not forget that cold weather can impact your Honda battery’s life.
Can we at Klein Honda assist you with your wet winter needs? We certainly can. Our expert tire technicians will help you mount new tires to your Honda that will tame Everett’s winter weather. And, if you plan to hit the snowy slopes of Washington, we will help you in the selection of tires that will give you complete confidence in the traction and steering of your Honda. Wherever you plan to drive, we can install a wiper blade that’s the most relevant to your traveling days and nights. And, of course, our complimentary multi-point inspection will check out your battery while leaving all your essential fluid levels topped off for your winter-driving safety.
