Get your vehicle ready for winter!


Switch from summer or all-season tires to snow tires

Winter tires are made of a softer rubber that allows them to remain flexible in colder climates. However, they wear out more easily as the weather gets warmer. When the temperature drops below 7 degrees, it's time to go back to winter/snow tires.

If you need new winter/snow tires, simply order your new tires here or call us at (403) 652-1365 or email

Change your wiper blades

Summer wiper blades, like summer tires, are made of a different rubber than winter wiper blades and should be replaced when the weather gets colder. Even if your wiper blades aren't designed for summer, they should be inspected and replaced if they're no longer working.

Test your Antifreeze

An integral part of the system that removes heat from your engine to maintain optimal operating temperature. Able to withstand the extremes of Canada’s climate. Rated for temperatures as cold as -56°C. Protects internal components from corrosion, and lubricates your engine’s water pump. Super Long Life offers the same benefits as the Long Life coolant for even longer.

Get an oil change

Up to the fill mark, your oil dipstick should indicate an amber color. Fill it up if it's below the fill line. Replace your oil right away if the dipstick is covered in a black, grimy film. Depending on your Toyota, oil can last between 8,000 to 16,000 km.

If you are unsure if you need an oil change, give us a call at (403) 652-1365 or email and our service team can assist you.

Give it a good wash

Over the winter, salt and grime will accumulate on almost every part of your vehicle, from the undercarriage to the interior mats. Offer your car a thorough spring cleaning once the roads are clear. Remember to check the undercarriage, wheel wells, windows, and interior mats.

Check your battery

It's important to test your battery and electrical system regularly, not just when it's starting to show signs of weakness. Proactively testing it (or making sure your mechanic does) twice a year will help reduce your chances of failure.
