Time to get your vehicle winter ready

Winter in Oregon can be hard on your car. It not just the snow or ice that makes driving dangerous, it's the subfreezing temperatures that play havoc with your vehicles moving parts. At Hermiston Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, our Service Center has experienced technicians that can handle any winter preparation you may need. Here are some of the things you should have checked before winter hits with full force.

Battery - Check the battery cables to ensure they are fastened securely and that there is no corrosion. If your car does not start it may be more than an inconvenience, it may be dangerous. Make sure your battery is holding a charge and have it replaced if needed.

Tires - We can check your tires for wear and for their ability to handle winter weather. All-season tires are a great option, but your vehicle may need something more specialized for winter. We can help get you on the road with tires that will get the traction you need.

Wiper Blades - Having wiper blades that are in good condition ensures you will be able to see when conditions are bad or in those days after a big snow when you are following a vehicle that throws snow or precipitation on your windshield. Our experienced technicians will make sure you have the right windshield wiper for your vehicle.

Fluids - Have your oil and transmission fluids changed and consider switching to a heavier oil for winter. Make sure your antifreeze has a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water. We can flush and fill your system and check all the fluids to ensure they are ready for the winter freeze.

We want you to stay safe this winter and for your car to have every advantage against the elements. Call us today and make an appointment for your winter car care.
