Winter Maintenance Tips from Simmons-Rockwell Group

Winter is here, and we want drivers across Pennsylvania and Upstate New York to be prepared. Having your car winterized at one of our Simmons-Rockwell service centers in New York or Pennsylvania provides peace of mind against Mother Nature's fury.

Winter service at Simmons-Rockwell Group ensures your driving safety, as frigid temperatures and hazardous road conditions create unfavorable driving experiences. Combat winter weather by having our factory-trained technicians provide winter tires, fluids, batteries, heat service, and general maintenance. Simmons-Rockwell will keep you safe throughout the winter months!

Key Vehicle Systems We Service for Winter


Our Simmons-Rockwell service centers in Bath, Elmira, Hornell, and Horseheads specialize in winter service for Nissan, Hyundai, Ford, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Subaru, and Mitsubishi models. Still, Ithaca drivers can bring in any make or model they drive for winterization service. We'll get your car prepared by servicing the following areas:

Tires

It never hurts Elmira motorists to have additional traction for winter driving. That's why we'll install snow tires or winter tires equipped for their vehicle. Our certified service technicians also perform additional tire maintenance. They rotate tires, monitor tire pressure, and check tire tread depth.

Fluids

To prevent their engine from freezing, Hornell drivers need to receive fresh engine coolant, or antifreeze. We'll monitor other fluid levels (windshield washer fluid, brake fluid, etc.), flush necessary fluids, and provide an oil change ahead of winter.

Wipers

Multiple forms of winter precipitation can come down on Hallstead, PA streets. Combat freezing rain, snow, and sleet with working windshield wiper blades, as we can install replacement blades.

Brakes

A working heating system helps Horseheads drivers stay warm on the road. We can repair the heating system and defroster.

Battery

Car batteries - which have average lifespans of four years - can suffer in cold weather, and Ithaca drivers may experience difficulty starting their vehicle. Have your battery inspected and serviced before winter. We'll test the battery and swap it with an OEM replacement, if necessary, for stress-free starting this winter.

Lights

It's important for Bath drivers to see and be seen while driving across New York in wintry conditions. That's why we'll replace any exterior bulbs or lights for proper driving visibility.

Heating System

A working heating system helps Horseheads drivers stay warm on the road. We can repair the heating system and defroster.
