Tips for Winterizing Your Slingshot


While in our minds it’s always Slingshot driving season, Slingshot owners in some regions know they have to store their favorite vehicles in the winter. Storing your Slingshot properly is vitally important to its long-term dependable performance and to your enjoyment next season. So, if you plan to store your Slingshot here are a few great resources for you.


Turn to Your Dealer

One of the easiest ways to get your Slingshot tucked in for the winter is to contact your local dealer. Most Slingshot dealers offer storage prep services, and some even offer to store your vehicle and then get it ready for the spring driving season. If you do your own off-season winterization, your Slingshot dealer is your source of important products such as Fogging Oil and more.

Consult the Manual

If you enjoy working on your own vehicle and want to put in the prep work yourself, your Slingshot Owner’s Manual is a great source of winterization information. If you can’t locate yours, it is also available here. Your manual includes step-by-step instructions for extended storage.

You should prepare your Slingshot for storage any time you won’t be driving it for 60 days or more.
