After a long and painful winter up here in the northern part of the United States, spring has finally, mercifully sprung, and in full force. That means it’s time to gear up for all those exciting summer road trips, but not before taking your vehicle in to visit the Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM service department to make sure they’ve had an opportunity to undo all the damage that those subzero months may have done on your automobile. As your Jeep dealership near Kalamazoo, MI, we feel as if it’s our duty to make sure your vehicle is in good shape before you hit that ol’ dusty trail this summer.
First and foremost, extremely cold temperatures can wreak havoc on a lot of your vehicle’s major engine components. The belts and hoses that make your automobile functional can crack or loosen during the winter months, so our specially-trained service technicians in our car service center will get in there and either tighten or replace the parts that need it.
Furthermore, we’ll make sure your tire pressure is where it should be, while also keeping an eye on your tread and your breaks, replacing whichever of those may require it, as well.
And, of course, there are the overwhelming number of spring potholes that come after a few months’ worth of ice, snow, and salt. Those can wreck the suspension on your new Chrysler car, which is one more thing you’ll want to have our service department check out before any long drive on the docket later this summer.
The bottom line is that spring maintenance is a good idea whether your car’s service schedule recommends it or not. Stop by Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM and we’ll make sure we undo any damage the winter months have done!
