The Farmer's Almanac is predicting that areas across the US--including places like Chicago, Naperville, Bensenville, and Countryside--are going to get hammered by snow this year during the winter season.

Are you, and your car, prepared for winter?

Our techs have put together a checklist so you can be sure:


Winter Prep Checklist

Have the right wheels: a car that's rusting out through the bottom, that barely has traction on a good day, or that stutters to start the second temps drop below freezing isn't going to have a good time this winter. Upgrade with one of the best SUVs to drive in the snow: Forbes' list named three Subaru SUVs: the Crosstrek, the Forester, and the Outback.

Have the right wheels--literally: all-season tires are better than summers, but nothing can beat the confidence and capability of winter tires when the snow flies in Chicago. We've got the brands, sizes, and styles you need.

Top off fluids: while there isn't any major concern about your car freezing during even the most brutal winter nights, topping off your coolant/antifreeze, making sure your engine oil system is clean and full, and filling up on windshield wiper fluid is a smart idea to keep everything working well.

Schedule your winter service prep: now at The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside. We'll help you fly through the checklist, get the gear and products that you need, and make sure that you're 100% confident before you leave.
