Prepare Your Car for Winter in St. Charles, IL

Prepare Your Car for Winter in St. Charles, IL

You Can Trust Our Technicians!

It’s never too early to start preparing for when the mercury falls and the snow flies! Though you may not be aware, your vehicle requires some special care at this time of year, so you can be ready for the inclement weather that we experience here in Illinois. Thankfully, the Service Department at McGrath Honda of St. Charles is here to help you prepare your vehicle for the winter months, so visit us today!

Why Do I Need to Prepare My Car for Winter?

Just as summer driving requires some special preparation, so does the winter season. When the temperature drops, your vehicle has to work a lot harder to get going, since heat takes longer to build when it’s at or below freezing outside. In addition, winter precipitation poses a significant risk by both impairing your vision and causing the roads to become quite slick and treacherous. Finally, adverse conditions mean that anything can happen, so you’ll want to be prepared in case you end up stranded on the side of the road.

Essential Services for Winter Driving

In order to prepare for the situations mentioned above, our technicians are ready to perform the full works on your vehicle. First, we’ll inspect the tread depth of your tires to ensure they can supply optimal traction, and, if you don’t have AWD, we'll also install snow tires for enhanced performance. Furthermore, we’ll make sure that the battery is in good working order, your cables and hoses are free of fraying and cracking, and install new wiper blades if your current set is looking a bit worn out. Finally, we can recommend a few items to keep inside your vehicle as part of your Emergency Road Kit, like a shovel, ice scraper, road flares, extra clothes, and a first-aid kit, to name a few.

Online Resources

If you’re ready to get started on your preparation for winter, our website has a few tools for you to make use of. First, feel free to reach out to our expert mechanics via the Ask a Tech form if you have any pressing questions on your mind prior to visiting us. Then, once you’re ready to stop by, reserve a date and time that suits your lifestyle with our easy-to-use online scheduling tool. Don’t forget to take a peek at current selection of specials on various parts and services, so you can save some green, too!

To prepare your car for winter in St. Charles, IL, stop into the service bay at McGrath Honda of St. Charles at your earliest convenience. The cold and snow will be here before you know it, so don’t delay! Our goal is to see you conquer winter safely in a vehicle that’s ready for anything.

Went to a Honda dealership to buy a used Ford. But my sales guy Blake Torphy took care of everything seamlessly. And Alex helped from finance to get me the truck I wanted at a price I was happy about. Thank you to everyone who helped me. I love my truck and I enjoyed my experience with Blake. I will be referring my friends who are looking for a new vehicle to McGrath Honda!!! Again Thanks!

The service department and the men and women who make it are top notch in customer service and customer satisfaction. Everyone is incredibly kind and helpful in solving any issues or concerns you may have. This is a huge reflection on Zach the service manager, he demands this kind of attention to detail and customer satisfaction from his team and they deliver. They have helped me from 2006 Honda Civic and now my 2019 Honda Accord. I would recommend them to anyone ! Thanks again McGrath Honda of St. Charles.

Everyone at Honda of St Charles was very friendly, helpful, and informative. Prior to going in I had been expecting a stressful and anxiety filled car-buying experience, but to my surprise it was exactly the opposite. Darek, my salesman was great! I never felt pressured or uncomfortable. He took the time to thoroughly explain the car and helped me get comfortable with how to use the digital screen. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Great Experience. I gave this dealer a chance after being a customer with another Honda dealer for 6 + years, I am glad I came to this location! I traded in a vehicle and leased a brand new vehicle and was out the door in 3 hours! Did not take long and got all of my questions answered. Aldo was great to work with - thank you, Aldo!

As I reflect on my time at McGrath Honda, I can definitely say it was the best car buying experience I have ever had. Carlos Fuentes was a wonderful sales rep - he knew his product and did not put any kind of pressure on me to purchase. He answered all of my questions and made sure I was happy with the car I chose. All of the guys that helped me, did a great job through the whole process and they certainly represented McGrath Honda well. I would recommend this dealership to anyone.

Honda McGrath was awesome! They’ll help you find what you need, drive it around and even quickly clean up the car even before you decide to purchase it. Our agent, Darek Smorczewski, was there from start to finish. He was very helpful and even calls you up after your purchase to makensure the car is holding up well. 5/5 !

I will never go anywhere else for vehicle leasing, purchasing, maintenance and general customer service after going through the McGrath- Honda (suburbs.) Within 1 week Dave, Nate, and Chris had a brand new Honda LX in my hands, delivered, downtown. Not only, did they let me drive the car for over a week free of Charge, but they disposed of my no longer operating car and used it in the transactions. Specifically, London, was able to meet, and maintain my budget at about 10PM on a Monday. These guys really go above and beyond customer service and truly know how to take care of their patrons. Despite being a 2 hour round trip back to the city. I will never return to McGrath downtown (having purchased a Honda Civic from them 3 years ago) and will continue using McGrath- Honda St. Charles until I get that CRV! Thank you Nate, London and Dave for a spectacular customer experience.

It was time for a new vehicle. Contacted Ruth, a friend, at McGrath Honda, best move I could have made. Got a bit of red carpet treatment from Derek and George O. they were outstanding and very willing to work with me. Friday I had done all the leg work, upon which they let me take the new car home for the evening. Super nice to check it out for the evening. Saturday returned with the husband to finalize the deal. Great experience in all departments. Thank you all and I love my new Red 2010 CRV.

My husband and I visited this dealer today as serious buyers on a slightly used Insight. We met with Jose and later George, who were both a pleasure to deal with. While we were not able to work out a deal today, I would highly recommend coming here and working with these gentlemen. Jose was very knowledgeable on the cars and was fun to work with. George was a straight shooter, which is rare at car dealers. Overall if you are looking for a Honda, it is worth it to check this place out. **Update as of 11/18 - We went back today and bought the car. It was a great experience all around, and we plan on coming back for our next one. Thank you all for making this a great experience!

During my experience at this location, I dealt with Dustin Johnson and Carlos Fuentes. Not only were they BEYOND, helpful, they were understanding, kind and made the whole buying a car experience nothing but a breeze. Being a younger buyer, I do not have a lot of experience nor knowledge when it comes to buying a vehicle. They were fair, helpful and there for any questions I had. I would recommend this location AND the two of them personally to everyone. This is the best experience I have ever had when it comes to any type of sale!

When we pulled into the dealership we were immediately greeted by Blake, who helped us throughout our experience buying a car. We told what we were looking for and he pulled up lots of different vehicles. He also provided lots of information about the cars, and he really helped us have the best time while buying our car.

When we went to get a car, we told our sales person, Brian, what we were looking for and how much we could afford. Brian was most pleasant and knowledgeable and was able to put us in the car we wanted and needed for the price we could afford. Recently, our vehicle was in for a recall. From making the appointment with Sherri, who was great, to Eddie R., Service technician , taking care of us, also very pleasant to deal with, it all went smooth. Thanks for the great (and hopefully continued) service.
