Illinois winters can be harsh. Litchfield motorists must make sure they're prepared for winter driving by winterizing their vehicle at the Steve Schmitt Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac service center. Our factory-trained technicians will make sure all your vehicle systems, components, and fluids are working together to keep you safe.

Why is Winter Service Important?

Extreme cold temperatures and ever-changing precipitation challenge any vehicle in the winter. Illinois road conditions often deteriorate in a blink, which is why your vehicle needs to be prepared for the unexpected.

You need adequate battery power to start up your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac and the proper tire pressure and traction to keep you moving forward. Gillespie drivers also need fresh engine coolant or antifreeze so their engine doesn't freeze. Even lights, oil, defroster and heating systems, and windshield washer fluid are important to prioritize your safety for winter driving.
