AKRON, Ohio, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Winter weather conditions can pose a variety of challenges for drivers and their vehicles. Goodyear Auto Service knows that in order to help get winter-ready you should have your car and tires inspected; however, according to a recent study of drivers who live in cold weather markets,* 37% don’t take any action to prepare their cars for winter unless they have an issue.

“It’s important to have your vehicle and tires inspected and serviced before a major winter storm hits. Doing so will help promote safety on the road and can potentially prevent more costly service expenses in the future,” said Sam Rosen, Goodyear Auto Service store manager. “Goodyear Auto Service aims to make this more affordable and convenient as we approach the busy holiday travel season.”

Goodyear Auto Service suggests customers take these five steps to prepare their vehicles for winter driving conditions:

To help drivers prepare for winter travel, Goodyear Auto Service locations nationwide are offering special discounts and free winter car care checks for most vehicles. Effective Dec. 1-31, 2019, customers can receive a free winter car care check, which includes a visual check of the battery, tires and brakes. If auto services are needed, customers can instantly save $25 when purchasing services of $100 or more. Those who need new tires can save $75 on the purchase and installation of a set of four Goodyear or Dunlop tires from Dec. 5-31, 2019. Additionally, get up to $75 back by online or mail-in rebate on select sets of four Goodyear tires, plus a bonus of up to $75 more when you use the Goodyear Credit Card through Dec. 31, 2019. Subject to credit approval. Additional terms and conditions apply. See www.goodyearautoservice.com for details.
