Seasonal Maintenance Suggestions for Your Vehicle

As the weather cools down, it's important to make sure that your car is functioning at its best. There are some maintenance checks that you may need to have your mechanic perform so that your vehicle is safe for the long trips you may be taking as the winter months continue to shower us with snow here in Hamilton.

One of the first things you should check is the battery. When there are changes in the weather, the battery can expand and contract, and this may affect the way your car runs. Be sure that your mechanic checks for corrosion as well, and cleans any debris so that your battery will charge correctly.

Your brakes and tires should also be in optimal condition for winter travel here in New York. Get your brake pads replaced so that you can operate your car properly, especially when the roads are wet or snowy. Your tires need to be filled with air and should be replaced or rotated if they are worn or have holes or slits.

We encourage to think about these tips the next time you're looking over your vehicle, and if you need any maintenance performed on your Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram vehicle, we welcome you to have it taken care of today at University Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram!
