Prepare your Subaru for Warm, Moderate and Cold Conditions in Sellersville, PA

When it comes to the preparation of your Subaru model for the weather, there are always things that you can do to ensure your vehicle is set up for sustained success. And here at A & T Subaru in Sellersville, PA, we want to set you up on the right path with some weather preparation tips for warm, moderate and cold conditions respectively.


How to prep your Subaru in different climates.

We can’t control Mother Nature, but we can control how prepared your Subaru is for her. Since driving conditions will vary throughout the year based on the region you live in, and the seasonal changes associated with it, we’ve categorized three general types of climates – warm, moderate and cold – and list the ways in which you can prepare your Subaru for each.

Warm Climate Preparation

Warmer climates usually produce mild to considerably warm temperatures all year long with rainfall occurring more often in the winter season. Areas near mountains, deserts and the coast can bring about different weather patterns and temperatures, but generally here are some common check-ups recommended from season to season if you live in a warm climate:

  • Inspect the tires – pressure, tread depth and condition
  • Consider summer tires over all-season tires
  • Test the battery
  • Review the A/C system
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels
  • Check the wipers and exterior lights
  • Check the brake pads and components
  • Inspect the engine air and cabin air filters

Warm Weather Tips for Sellersville, PA Driving

Your tires can be impacted by the warm-weather conditions here in Sellersville, PA, which is why you need to check components such as the pressure, tread and overall shape of your tires prior to summer commuting. Considering summer tires is also a wise decision in this regard as well.

Tests and subsequent checks that you will want to handle include a battery test, A/C unit inspection, oil level and fuel level review. Fresh motor oil is essential in addition, as warmer temperatures can put your engine at risk in certain circumstances.

Prepping for Summer

Moderate Climate Preparation

Moderate climates tend to have a mix between warm and cold climate zones with light snowfall in the winter and mild to warm summers with occasional rainfall. Some common seasonal vehicle preparations for a moderate climate are as follows:

  • Inspect the tires – pressure, tread depth and condition
  • Consider all-season tires
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels
  • Inspect the heating, cooling and defroster system
  • Test the battery
  • Check the wipers and exterior lights
  • Check the components of the suspension system
  • Check the wheel alignment
  • Check the brake pads and components

Moderate Weather Tips for Sellersville, PA Driving

Moderate weather means that you can expect a range of different driving conditions in Sellersville, PA, making the preparation of your vehicle all the more vital. All-season tires can help you to maintain a consistent grip on the road, while heating, cooling and defroster systems should all be checked to ensure that you are prepared for the unexpected.

Cold Climate Preparation

Colder climates usually dip below freezing when winter arrives and receive light to heavy snowfall for extended periods of time. The summer season brings similar conditions to that of warmer and moderate climates with a fair share of rainfall. Review the warmer climate section when summer arrives for suggested check-ups. As for winter, if you live in or spend a good amount of time in a colder climate, here are some common things to prepare your Subaru during the winter season:

  • Consider purchasing/switching to winter tires
  • Adjust tire pressure (cold temperatures decrease tire pressure)
  • Check tire tread depth
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels
  • Make sure windshield washer fluid is suitable for freezing temps
  • Check the condition of wiper blades and exterior lights
  • Consider winter wiper blades
  • Test the battery
  • Check the brake pads and components
  • Check the heating and defroster systems

Cold Weather Tips for Sellersville, PA Driving

Snow, ice and other inclement weather can be expected during the later months of the year in Sellersville, which is what makes the preparation of your Subaru ahead of time all the more critical in this season. Brake inspections are important this time of year to check for functionality issues, while snow tires are suggested to improve traction and road grip as you drive. Heating systems should be inspected and repaired where necessary, and wiper blades should be replaced to verify your visibility moving forward.
