Are you winterizing your vehicle before heading out on the roads of Baldwin and Hudson? The auto mechanics at Next Generation Auto want to make sure that you and your car are operating safely. We invite you to bring your vehicle into our auto repair facilities for winterizing in the Fall before the next storm catches you by surprise.

Winterizing is one of those things that is easy to do and can prolong the life of your car. When you bring your vehicle into Next Generation Auto, we can ensure that your batteries are in good shape, your wiper blades are operating correctly, the tire pressure is just right, and the coolant or antifreeze is there to protect your engine, so it doesn’t freeze. We get really low temperatures in Baldwin and Hudson, so winterizing your vehicles before the cold months settle in makes a lot of sense.

Why bring your vehicle into Next Generation Auto for winterizing? Our owners Jeremy Austrum and Shawn Kline have lived in Wisconsin for many years, so they know about winterizing cars, trucks, and SUVs. Our auto repair technicians understand how vital winterizing is to a vehicle in the Baldwin and Hudson area. Plus, our technicians are ASE-Certified and our 2-year/24,000-mile warranty gives you peace of mind.

I went there for the first time the other day. I was impressed with the staff and their knowledge. They brought me out in the shop and showed me what was wrong with my vehicle! Definitely will be going back!

They were able to take a look at my car right away. I really appreciate the detail that Steve was able to provide. He explained the repairs required and the cost was reasonable; actually better than I expected. I will consider them for future work.

Melissa at the front desk is so incredibly friendly over the phone and in person. I appreciated the overall car inspection. It was so nice that it could be sent via text message to make it even more convenient. Overall, it was a excellent experience with such nice people!

Had a great experience here in the Fall of 2019. Head gaskets replacements in our Duramax… Since it was a huge job, I researched shops all over the twin cities area and Next Gen didn’t disappoint. Worked with Melissa and Cody and felt well informed through the whole process; they helped us identify other opportunistic items to work on. Very responsive to all my questions. They provided us a loaner car through the couple weeks our truck was in the shop. The truck has worked well over the past few months. Great work, i’m grateful to have a reliable truck again during these odd times.
