Snow Tires, Winter Tire Service & More

We stock all sizes and types of snow tires, winter tires, all-season tires and more at our Middletown tire shop. In Rhode Island, winter has a habit of enlarging potholes and pavement crevices to a degree almost dangerous. The more abuse your tires experience as a result, lessened will be tire integrity. As well, with such force being applied to front tires, your front-end wheel alignment might show signs of faulty angle and tilt.

With tire rotations and inspections performed at Saccucci Honda, our skilled tire technicians inspect tire sidewalls and treads for wear and those telltale signs of other issues noted on tread surfaces.

At the very least, a properly inflated tire won't experience a wintertime blowout when meeting with a Middletown pothole.

What Type of Servicing Will My Honda Ridgeline Require Before Winter?

This question is asked frequently at Saccucci Honda. Perhaps this stems from worry concerning nor'easters, notorious New England winter temperatures or snow-blown roads.

Though whatever the winter challenges presented, it's best practice to service your Honda Accord at the start of every season. In this there's peace-of-mind and the confidence to venture into Dartmouth, MA, at moment's notice.

So, let's examine below those needed wintertime servicing procedures for a safe holiday and the winter doldrums to follow:

Battery Servicing

Honda battery servicing should never be performed at home in Bristol, RI.

Given the amount of battery fluid and acid comprising your Honda Accord battery, you must leave the cleaning of toxic residue and inspection to Saccucci Honda service professionals.

As well, battery testing will help ensure your winter goes without a hitch in terms of a non-starting Honda Pilot stranded in snow. It's at that time a good Samaritan with jumper cables might be difficult to locate.

Oil Changes

For a smoothly lubricated engine and all-encompassing parts, fresh engine oil is a must every few thousand miles. Without, you may expose your Honda Odyssey engine to internal damage and a costly repair. And while any season produces stress upon engines, winter is most exacting in terms of wear.

With fresh engine oil and filter replacement, you'll benefit from an engine whose parts are working in perfect harmony.

Fluid Flushing, Replenishment

Like engine oil, fluids enable certain systems of brakes, steering and wipers to work. With low levels of fluids, these very systems may induce an unfortunate circumstance in Newport.

By inspecting fluid reservoirs and fluid lines leading to each system, leaks and punctures will be located in time to save you from brakes that don't respond when applied, working the steering wheel to exhaustion with little response and wiper blades unable to clean salt from windscreens. Fluid replenishment runs standard at Saccucci Honda.

Windshield Wipers

Fresh windshield wipers are a must prior to winter and most probably during winter.

The sharpness of the rubber blades themselves becomes a valued commodity for the efficient removal of road salt, ice and snow. And without the proper amount of wiper fluids, a dirtied windshield will be a hazard alone.

HVAC Systems

HVAC systems provide the necessary heat for cold, New England winters. With the intricacy associated with HVAC systems, if heat is not supplied for a comfortable cabin, you might be distracted to the point of distraction near Bristol.
