We’re approaching the end of another season and summer is on the horizon. What does that mean? It means your car is about to be exposed to higher temperatures, dust, and the stop-and-go traffic that’s all too familiar at the Jersey Shore around summer holidays. If you love going to the beach, it also means your vehicle is about to be exposed to corrosive salt water spray.

If you couple all those things with the effects that winter often has on automobiles, it’s easy to understand why it’s necessary to prepare your car for the upcoming change of season. The smartest thing you can do to get your vehicle ready for summer is to get caught up with the routine maintenance your automobile needs to run properly if you’ve fallen behind.

With temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees Fahrenheit in our area on occasion during the summer, it’s imperative that you make sure your air conditioning is working properly while the temperature is still tolerable. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your cabin air filter, you should make an appointment to bring your car into our Jeep® service center in Toms River, NJ so we can replace it for you. Your cabin air filter is what keeps the air that enters your air conditioning system clean so replacing this filter regularly is important.

Your cabin air filter isn’t the only filter you should have changed as we head into summer. To ensure your vehicle operates properly, you should change filters like your oil and fuel filters, too.

If you want to ensure your automobile is ready for summer, bring your car into our Jeep service center. Our factory-trained technicians will prepare your vehicle for the upcoming change of season. Contact Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT to make a service appointment today.
