How to Get Your Vehicle Prepped for Spring

March 10th, 2019 by

Spring is finally upon us! Time to finally shed our winter coats and put our flip flops back on. What some of us might not realize, however, is that our cars also need a sort of decompression of their own. They’ve been working super hard all winter, and they need a bit of TLC to make sure they can enjoy the warmer weather to the fullest. And we at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep® want to give you a quick to-do list to make sure your vehicle is running in peak condition.

Now, if you’ve been hitting up the off-road in a vehicle like the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, the snow and debris that have developed in your vehicle’s undercarriage have a chance to do some serious damage if left alone. A complete wash is very much in order. The salt and other elements accumulated from the road and elsewhere will be washed away, as will the risk of rust. If your vehicle is a little older, you might want to consider getting a rust undercoating and adding that to the list for your vehicle’s winter prep in the future from here on out.

Of course, no one likes potholes. They’re killers of tires and ruiners of your day. And you’ve probably hit your share of snow-expanded potholes over the winter. Get your tires rotated and checked out when the snow melts; no one likes a blowout on their first trip to the beach. You also need to make sure that your car’s fluids are maintained. At the bare minimum, your windshield wiper fluid is probably very low, but checking in on fluids that have been subject to the cold temperatures are something you’re going to want to investigate.

And there’s no better way to get all of these things done at once than heading into our Fort Wayne, IN Chrysler dealership. Our expert service technicians are here to make sure your vehicle is in top shape for any weather, so come in today for the best deals and the friendliest service.
