Jeep® SUV drivers love their vehicles and want to keep them performing at their top capacity for as long as possible. So, how do you protect your SUV and stay out of our Jeep service center? Here are a few driving habits to avoid from the team at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT.

Waiting Too Long to Gas Up

No matter where you’re traveling in your Jeep SUV, always keep the gas tank at least one-quarter full. The engine could stall if you run out of fuel, leading to extremely expensive repairs. Being stranded with no gas can also be dangerous if you’re off-roading, especially if the fuel runs out when you’re traversing steep terrain or fording through water.

Hitting the Brakes Too Hard

Brakes go through normal wear and tear, which is why you bring your SUV to our Jeep service center for routine maintenance. And while an occasional hard brake might be necessary to avoid an accident, riding or frequently slamming on the brakes increases the wear and tear. Hard braking can also be dangerous for the drivers around you who aren’t expecting a sudden stop, so it’s always best to practice good braking habits.

Ignoring Dashboard Warning Lights

Many dashboard lights indicate something is wrong (or about to go wrong). If your SUV is telling you something isn’t quite right, bring it to our Jeep service center immediately. We’ll perform an inspection, diagnose the problem, and fix what needs fixing before it becomes a more significant issue.
