Driving around Mechanicsville can become more hazardous during the winter months. That is why it is so important to get your Ford ready for whatever the cold has in store for it. With two service locations, the team at Bill Talley Ford can help you with all of your winter-prep needs. Here are a few of the most important areas of your vehicle to get checked out.

The Brakes

While it is always important to have working brakes, this becomes even more crucial during the winter. Slippery road conditions make commutes around Ashland dangerous, and your brakes must be up for the job. We recommend having your brake pads checked before the weather gets bad at one of our two locations.

The Tires

Having tires with plenty of tread is especially important when dealing with snow and ice. Visually inspect your tires for any cracks or breaks. Our team can also recommend effective tires for winters near Richmond. Having proper tires and proper traction is one of the most important steps to prepping your Ford for winter.

The Lights

Winter means less daylight and more driving after dark for many people in Sandston. Make sure that you can see and be seen by checking your headlights and taillights. Now is also a good time to check reverse lights, turn signals, and fog lights. Ensure that your emergency flashers are working as well in case you find yourself stranded on the side of the road.

Get an Oil Change

Your oil becomes less effective over time and in extreme temperatures. We recommend getting an oil change to make sure your oil is ready for the winter ahead. Fresh oil and a new oil filter will make your drives easier and safer!
