Preparing Your Vehicle for Colder Weather

Winter months bring colder and wetter weather which presents challenges for you as wells as your vehicles. Many steps can be taken to assure you and your car or truck make it through the colder season safely.

Fluids:
  •  Coolant- It is especially important to have the correct antifreeze/water mixture to prevent fluid from freezing in your radiator. Consult your vehicle's owner's manual for information on this mixture.
  • Oil- In areas where freezing temps are common, it could be recommended to switch to a thinner viscosity oil
  •  Wiper Fluid- Often overlooked, you'll need freeze-resistant wiper fluid to keep your windshield clean and your vision clear.

Tires:

Low air pressure and worn tires are especially dangerous on wet or slick roads, as both can reduce traction. Check your owner's manual for the recommended PSI. If you've never checked tire pressure yourself, stop by an auto parts store and pick up a tire gauge. Our step-by-step guide to checking tire pressure can help you check pressure and properly inflate your tires. If you live in an area with a lot of snowfall, consider snow tires. It's a valuable investment that can increase your traction and improve your safety on the road.

Battery:

It isn't only your engine that doesn't like to start in the winter. Your battery capacity is reduced by the cold weather, too. A thorough inspection of your battery, cables, terminals, and fluid will help you make sure your car is ready for the winter.

Traveling in colder weather can require some planning too. Keeping a safety kit in your car all year is a good idea. Things like road flares, a jack, a lug wrench, and a first aid kit should be at hand no matter what. It's a good idea to update this kit with seasonal items that can keep you warm and prepared for Mother Nature's worst. Other items to consider are:
  •          Flashlight.
  •          Blanket, leather gloves, and hat.
  •          Bag of kitty litter or sand.
  •          This can help if your tires get stuck in the snow or slush.
  •         Ice scraper and brush.
  •          Small shovel.
  •          Safe and leak-proof container of coolant.
  •          Snacks.

Regular maintenance of your vehicle will help reduce the chance of a breakdown in winter. The Olympia Auto Mall is the perfect place to have your vehicle “winterized”. With 9 dealers to choose from, this is the place to come to get you and your car, truck, or RV ready for the cold. Contact our service centers today.

2019 VW Jetta


For more than 40 years the Volkswagen Jetta has been the choice for a sophisticated and fun to drive sedan. The 2019 Jetta is no exception. This seventh generation Jetta has more room, comfort, technology, and value than previous years.

The Jetta is now based on Volkswagen’s current scalable architecture that underpins many of the brand's models, from the Golf to the Atlas three-row SUV, which helps VW reduce costs through shared development and production. Consumers will see a drop for the base model price and a list of features that has expanded compared with the outgoing Jetta.

The 2019 Jetta features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with plenty of power coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. There is a six-speed manual transmission option for those seeking a sportier drive. Even with the performance gains, the Jetta achieves a combined 34mpgs.

A comfortable ride is achieved by a compliant suspension system that absorbs bumps and imperfections in the road to perfection. This makes for a quiet ride while maintaining a sporty feel.

Interior features like automatic climate control, front heated seats, sunroof, and the soft-touch upper dash gives the Jetta an interior ambience edge over most of its competitors.

There are plenty of storage places, including a bin under the nicely padded armrest that can accommodate an iPad mini, as well as generous pockets built into the doors for water bottles, umbrellas, and whatnot. All Jettas will come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility standard.

We suggest making the short drive to the Olympia Auto Mall and taking a test drive in the 2019 Jetta. The friendly staff at Volkswagen of Olympia will be happy to answer all your questions and get you behind the wheel of this proven sedan. We look forward to seeing you soon.
