Fall is just starting, and the leaves have turned in New England. That means it’s time to start thinking about winterizing your Porsche car or SUV at Porsche Nashua. Don’t wait ’til the first snowfall. Visit now and you’ll be ready for the worst Old Man Winter can dish out.

Unless you’re a recent arrival, you don’t need us to tell you that winter in Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire is no joke. Sure, it’s great when you want to ski Bretton Woods or Gunstock, but it’s a pain in the neck if your car breaks down because it wasn’t properly maintained.

There are some things you can do to prepare, including keeping a scraper, collapsible shovel, and some kitty litter handy. But there are some other things best left to the Porsche service center at your Nashua Porsche dealership.

You’ll want to ensure your tires and wipers are the right ones to handle snow and ice. You may have all-season tires mounted now, but if they’re worn they won’t do you much good regardless of the weather. Besides, snow tires are more durable and have better traction on snowy and icy surfaces.

You’ll also want us to check your brakes and battery, as well as your heating system, fluids, belts, and hoses. While we’re doing our thing in the service bays, you can browse our selection of OEM Porsche parts and accessories in case you need a ski rack or some all-weather mats.

The one thing you don’t want? An accident or breakdown because you neglected the essentials. That’s why we’re taking time now — months before the start of winter — to remind you to winterize your Porsche Panamera or Porsche Macan.
