Winter is right around the corner for us here in Frontenac, KS. As we’re getting ready with coats, gloves, and scarves, don’t forget about your vehicle! Did you know that winter can wreak havoc on your Chrysler Pacifica or RAM 1500? That’s why it’s important to give your car the spa treatment prior to the arrival of Old Man Winter.

Inspect Tires’ Condition

Your tires are arguably one of the most important components to ready for the upcoming season. Our technicians will inspect the tread wear to ensure there’s enough for optimal traction on slippery, snow-ridden roads. They’ll also check the air pressure, as for every 10-degree drop in temperature, a tire can lose 1 psi.

Check Battery

The battery is hit hard during winter, as they take twice as much current to start in freezing temperatures. Our car service center near Joplin, MO will test the charge and clean off any corrosion.

Top Off Various Fluids

Your vehicle requires several fluids to run properly. Before winter hits, bring your RAM 2500 or JeepĀ® Cherokee in to have its fluids topped off, including brake, transmission, power steering, and coolant fluid. You may opt for winter-grade oil and windshield wash, both of which are designed specially for low temperatures.

No matter what your needs may be, they’re sure to be met here in our service department. With expert technicians on hand, state-of-the-art equipment, and service and parts specials, we offer all that you need for successful and efficient winter maintenance.
