With winter approaching, many drivers will be seeking out a service center that can winterize their vehicle and help keep their investment pristine through some of the harshest months of the year. The technicians at Stark Sun Prairie are used to seeing an influx of winterization requests this time of year and encourage drivers to, at bare minimum, get an oil change and have their batteries checked before the mercury dips too low.
Their service experts have also recommended that Wisconsin drivers consider adding winter tires onto their vehicle, topping off their engine fluids, and testing their anti-freeze to ensure that it's a true 50/50 blend. Their body shop advises local drivers to be especially cautious while driving this fall, as they receive an increase in body repairs around this time of the year due to deer collisions.
As a reminder, collisions with deer or moose occur most frequently in their primary habitats near waterways and heavily forested areas. The road signs warning for deer collisions are not their for tourists; they are there as a reminder that this is an area with heavy wildlife traffic and to be cautious.
The best ways to prevent an accident with wildlife are to pay attention, drive slowly, and to be especially wary at dawn and dusk, as that is when deer and moose tend to move around the most.
As always, Stark Chevrolet features the latest new Chevrolet vehicles as well as affordable used and certified pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs at their Sun Prairie dealership. Drivers with more questions about fall maintenance or in need of auto body work after a wildlife collision are encouraged to contact the dealership and speak with a member of their team today.
