Winter Maintenance Tips

How to Get Your Car Ready for Winter

Even though Escondido doesn't get freezing weather like other places, you still need to winterize your car. You should especially winterize your car if you plan on taking a trip to the mountains. Luckily, you won't need to go all over San Diego County for winter car care. Here are some ways Mossy Volkswagen in Escondido can help with getting your car ready for winter. We are just a short drive away from San Marcos, Rancho Santa Fe, Valley Center, and Vista, CA.

Winter Car Care for Your Wheels

You won't need to change to winter tires, but you should ensure they are in good condition. Consider having us do the following services:
