Whether you’re driving a new model or the one you’ve had for years, it’s essential to maintain a healthy car. Here are some summer car care tips to help you enjoy a safe summer.

We’re all guilty of it. We see that we’ve passed the mileage marker for an oil change but have yet to get to it. However, after a long winter full of snow and dirt it’s crucial to get your oil and oil filter changed. Extreme weather conditions–both hot and col–take a toll on your oil which can affect how well your engine performs and even increase the risk of damage. Start summer off right by coming in for a quick and easy oil change.

Speaking of your vehicle’s fluid, it’s a smart idea to keep an eye on your battery’s fluid levels. The summer heat will cause your battery’s fluid to evaporate faster which can also cause oxidation and grime buildup on your battery. Another vital fluid is your coolant, especially when the weather is hot. Coolant keeps your engine from overheating, which is one of the biggest causes of summer breakdowns. If you don’t feel confident in checking your vehicle’s coolant levels on your own, bring it to our dealership at 755 Paul Bunyan Drive NW today.

We want you to take advantage of summer, which is why you should take advantage of our Chrysler service center. Visit us today for all your vehicle needs and kick off summer with peace of mind.
