Winterize Your Honda


In addition to freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, winter brings hazardous driving conditions along with it. Make sure you’re prepared to deal with the next cold blast by checking in with our service team at McGrath Honda of St. Charles! We have all the resources you need to winterize your Honda.

Winterizing Services

Looking for the most effective way you can combat the slick roads? It’s hard to beat winter tires, which feature more flexible rubber, deeper treads, and more biting edges for enhanced traction. We’d be happy to install a set for you! We also recommend a full fluid inspection, including your oil, coolant, brake fluid, and power steering fluid, since these can potentially freeze when the temperature plummets. While we’re having a look under the hood, we’ll check out your battery and all the related connecting wires, cables, and hoses to ensure none of them are in danger of fraying or cracking. If you’re ready for us to have a look, be sure to consult our Service Specials, which often feature great deals on winterizing and related maintenance work!

At-Home Preparation

There’s also plenty you can do on your end to guard against winter driving woes. We recommend paying particular attention to your windshield, which can easily fall victim to compromised visibility. Make sure your front and rear defrosters are functioning properly, and that your wiper fluid is topped off. In addition to specialized winter weather fluid, you can buy winter windshield wipers, which feature reinforced blades and fewer gaps where snow and ice can become trapped and prevent the blade from making contact with the windshield. Finally, it’s always a good idea to pack an emergency kit in the event you become stranded in a winter storm. Be sure to include extra warm clothing and tools like a shovel, scrapers, and road flares.

Our Online Tools

If you’re ready to bring in your Honda, make your first stop our website. The “Service” tab at the top has plenty of helpful resources, including a quick and easy form to make a service appointment. Have a look at our Parts Department as well, where you’ll find plenty of options for enhancing your Honda’s cold weather performance along with current special offers. And should any questions arise while you’re performing at-home maintenance or preparing to visit our Service Center, simply submit a message via our Ask a Tech form and get a prompt response from one of our experts.

Online or in-store, you can’t beat McGrath Honda of St. Charles for the assistance you need when the time comes to winterize your Honda. Our dealership is conveniently located at 1411 E. Main Street in St. Charles, so stop in to see us and stay one step ahead of the snow, sleet, and ice!


We'll Give Your Battery a Thorough Inspection

Darek S. at McGrath Honda of St. Charles was the reason I bought my new vehicle. He was knowledgeable and professional, but more importantly he was friendly, approachable and sincerely cared about finding me what I really wanted in my budget. Not once did he pressure me to go above budget or settle. He is a class act and this dealership is lucky to have him.

Every individual we worked with (sales consultant, manager, finance) listened to what we needed to purchase the vehicle and met those needs. We had not intended to purchase on this day, but we ended up driving home a new Honda.

Joselin met us with a smile and put us at ease right away. Car buying, when you’re not actually planning to buy, can be a daunting task. She showed us vehicles within our parameters and made sure we liked what we saw. She didn’t want to waste our time with options we didn’t like, which I appreciated. She was very easy to work with. She helped my husband and I agree on a vehicle purchase that we are excited for!

Superior service from start to finish. On line scheduling is intuitive, and the schedule is very flexible. I had to reschedule an appointment on short notice and it was very easy. For my rescheduled appointment, I was ready early, called and they told me to come in whenever I was ready. Extremely customer friendly process and wait time was reasonable. Outstanding.

Purchased this vehicle in 2012 and enjoy the look and feel of a Hybrid, plus the excellent fuel savings of 50+ mpg. Needed new battery and decided to take the car to the dealer rather than cheap it out at home. That was a good call. Delighted with dealer reps and follow-up. I am a big fan of the McGrath Team.

I worked with CJ and Zach in the Service Department. Both were on top of their game and reached out several times to give updates on my vehicle while they attempted to diagnose the problem. Although, they weren't able to replicate the tech issues, they did an audio update that fixes bugs, while also giving the vehicle the ability to log any problems in the future. Furthermore, I briefly mentioned that the tailgate was making a loud screeching noise. They ordered a strut and fixed that problem too. If any problems happen in the future, I will be taking my ride back to McGrath Honda of St. Charles.
