Winterize Your Toyota near Des Moines, IA

When you live in a colder climate, winter always feels like it’s waiting just around the corner. Time certainly can fly by, but don’t let potentially hazardous conditions catch you unprepared! You want to ensure that your vehicle is more than ready for adverse weather, and the easiest way to do that is by visiting Toyota of Des Moines to winterize your Toyota. You’ll be feeling safer and more confident on the roads in the blink of an eye.

Winter Driving

We do everything we can to ensure that your vehicle is operating optimally once the mercury starts to drop, but equally important is that drivers exercise caution once the roads start to become cold and slick. We always like to remind our customers that winter makes everything just a bit slower. Other drivers will be moving less quickly, and fast trips can become longer waits in traffic. Rather than finding yourself in a rush, which might prompt you to make some unsafe decisions while trying to get to your destination, be sure to leave for appointments earlier so that you can relax and stay cautious on the road. In case of any emergencies, be sure to always have warm clothes with you when you travel, as well as tools like a snow scraper, a flashlight, and bottled water.

How Do We Winterize Your Toyota?

When you pull into Toyota of Des Moines and request that we winterize your vehicle, we’ll take a look all of the top maintenance hotspots to ensure that your vehicle is running as well as it possibly can. This means we’ll investigate important details like your brake pads and tire wear for optimal stopping power and traction on the road; your engine filter and battery to make sure that you can be confident that your powertrain will stay running in the cold; as well as you fluid levels, which can help prevent internal damage by keeping parts lubricated, especially in cold and dry conditions. If you have any specific concerns or tasks you want us to do for you, we’re always happy to help!

Online Features

Before you visit us in person, we’d invite you to look at our online Service Department found right here on our website. This offers you a number of features you might find helpful. One detail is the Safety Recalls signup. Just enter your information and that of your vehicle, and we’ll send you immediate updates if the manufacturer ever announces any defects. Are you having a specific issue and aren’t certain what’s wrong? The Ask a Tech form will allow you to talk directly with one of our expert mechanics. Finally, be sure to look at the Service Specials we offer to make sure you don’t miss any discounts.

If you’re feeling like it’s time to winterize your Toyota near Des Moines, IA, stop by 1650 SE 37th Street in Grimes, IA. At Toyota of Des Moines, our service bay is open six days a week, so we should always have an available time to help you out!

I am so happy I was able to work with Bryon Baker at Toyota of DSM. He helped make my purchase experience far easier than I expected it would be, despite having negative equity in my old vehicle. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and never pushy about the sale. I love everything about the 2019 RAV4 LE I purchased. Everyone go visit him with any of your automotive needs, you will NOT be disappointed. Thanks again, Bryon!

Our customer service experience was exceptional! Ian Rojas was our salesman and leasing consultant. It was our first time leasing, and he was very thorough in explaining our options. He took his time with us, answered all of our questions, and did not make us feel rushed. He also did not pressure us, made us feel very comfortable, and was very reassuring! He made the process easy, quick, and simple. He truly went above and beyond, and we would HIGHLY recommend his help and services! Ask for him!

Ian has been servicing both my Toyotas for years. He always is pleasant, answers all my questions, and explains service intervals when they apply. Ian also will recommend additional service requirements when they may sense. These two individuals are always sincere and represent the face and voice of this dealership.

As a loyal Toyota customer, I was a little dismayed with the difficulty I had in getting a salesman to assist me. As I had been to the showroom twice while my oil changes were being done and not once did anyone approach me with even a greeting. Many believe it was because I was alone female? I did however send a general email and received a reply that led to bringing my husband out to work with a saleman, as we were serious car buyers. We were pleased with our saleman and did drive away with a new vehicle. I am looking forward to many years with this dealership as I only allow Toyota service departments do anything to my vehicles. We hope to attend the new car reception in Nov. I'm happy this all worked out. Jennifer Olson PS I don't remember the name of the gentleman that went through the buttons with me, I want to give a huge shout out to him for being so patient and not making me feel stupid. He is a true asset to a new car owner when all this technology is involved. ? Brandon Brown?

All went as well as I could expect. I've been pleased with Toyota's service for the last few years. The dealership is very close to my home. It would be hard to find a service garage that offers as many benefits - such as a ride to and from work. The cost seems reasonable.
