Winter is fast approaching here in the Toms River, and Brick, NJ area and that means icy roads, cold weather, and extra holiday driving. To help drivers in the area better navigate the poor weather and road conditions, we at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM are offering up a few tips to help you ensure your vehicle is ready for the coming months.

Unlike the warmer months, the cold temperatures, elements, and debris during winter add extra strain on your car, whether you have a new 2019 Jeep Cherokee or not. That’s why it’s essential that you prepare.

Winterizing your vehicle isn’t hard, however. With a few checks and the help of our expert service center, you’ll quickly prepare your car for even the worst conditions. Before you service your vehicle, there’s plenty you can do on your own. We recommend that you make sure specific components are working correctly. Check your exterior and interior lights, heater and defroster, and wiper blades and fluid. It’s also smart to get new blades and fluid which are made for cold weather.

You’ll also want to keep an eye on your tire pressure, as cold weather depletes your tire pressure at a more rapid rate, air filters, and gas levels. Keeping your gas tank at least half full prevents moisture from forming and then freezing.

To adequately ensure that your car is ready for winter, visit our service center where our expert technicians will inspect your vehicle to ensure that everything is running smoothly. Additionally be sure to check out our parts and accessories to find everything you need from roof racks to new floor mats.

As your Toms River Chrysler dealership, we want to give you peace of mind when behind the wheel this winter. Please stop by our service center for expert service. Additionally, be sure to check out our current Jeep service specials on our site to help you save.
