Your Jeep® SUV is ready to take on just about anything, but is it ready for the winter cold and snow? At Gandrud Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we can help you prepare for the upcoming season at our Jeep service center. Here’s just a few of the things we can do for you.
Check the Tires
You want to make sure that your tires are in good shape for the winter months. If they have shallow tread, they might not offer the traction you need on snowy or icy roads. Check for any obvious signs of damage or uneven wear and tear, and if you need replacements, don’t hesitate. You don’t want to ride around on tires that are past their prime all season, increasing your risk for a roadside emergency.
Change the Oil
The start of a new season is a great time for an oil change. Your engine has to work hard in the cold weather, so make sure that it has fresh cold-weather oil and ensure that other crucial systems of your vehicle are in top shape with a visit to our service center.
Test Your Battery
Your battery helps your Jeep SUV start up, but it can struggle in extreme temperatures. Get your battery tested before the winter cold sets in to make sure that you won’t be stuck somewhere with a vehicle that will not start. It’s never fun to need a jump, but it’s especially annoying during the colder months of the year.
Don’t Forget the Windshield Wipers
Now here’s a small part that’s easy to forget about. Winter can mean more inclement weather, which means that you’ll be relying on your windshield wipers to clear up your view. If they’re old and worn out, they might just leave behind streaks as they struggle to do this important job. Replace them if they look like they’ve seen better days.
So, if you’re in need of winter Jeep service, visit the trained technicians at Gandrud Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. We’re ready to assist you with all of your car care needs!
